In October, we worked together to create a diversity quilt that represented each individual at Bridge Point and illustrated the significant role each one of us has in shaping and contributing to our Bridge Point family. While BPE students worked on their diversity quilt, students at Barton Creek, Cedar Creek, Eanes, Forest Trail, and Valley View also created diversity quilts to represent the students on their campuses. At the beginning of December, the counselors from each of these schools gathered at the Westlake High School football stadium to bring all of our quilts together to represent our greater Eanes Westlake community! Just as each student at Bridge Point adds unique value to our school, each campus brings something special to our district as a whole. We are so pleased with how this activity panned out and are excited to share a photograph of the final project below. We are so very grateful for all of the students and their families here are Bridge Point and we feel so fortunate to be a part of your community. We hope you all have a safe and joyous winter break and we look forward to seeing you all in the new year!
Please remind your children to visit the lost & found! In an effort to keep our lost and found efficient, any unclaimed items remaining when we leave for winter break will be donated to charity. The best way to make sure your child’s lost items are returned is to clearly label them with first and last names.
This month we are focusing on mindfulness as our life skill. At this time of year in particular, we find ourselves strapped for time and energy and trying to be in multiple places at once. It’s so very important for students, teachers and parents alike to take time to slow down and practice mindfulness. Deep breathing is one of our favorite strategies! Students in third through fifth grade learned about square breathing and even made their own tool to practice. Not sure what square breathing is? Ask your child to teach you!
