Hello again and welcome to the first 2015 edition of the Weekly Bridge. After a long holiday break, school finally resumes on Monday, January 5th. A few notes and reminders as we get ready to begin the new year at Stanbridge:
The second session of afterschool clubs begins this week. This session of clubs runs from the week of January 5, 2015 through mid-March. Most of our first-session clubs will continue for a second iteration, but some new options are being offered. Club descriptions for this upcoming session, along with a sign-up form, can be found in our clubs brochure, a copy of which has been posted to our Files & Forms page. Enrollment is open now through January 9, and clubs will fill on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that students will need to re-enroll for a club if they wish to continue as a member during this session. Also, if a club does not meet the minimum enrollment by January 9, it will be cancelled and enrollment fees will be refunded. Remember that clubs end at 4:30 p.m., please ensure prompt pickup of your student.
This Wednesday, January 7th, the Stanbridge Parent Association will hold their monthly SPA meeting at 8:30 a.m. in Hayden Hall. All Stanbridge parents and guardians are encouraged to attend.
Just prior to the start of holiday break, we updated our Family Directory for winter. Click over to our Files & Forms page to view and/or download the updated file. If you have any corrections that need to be made, please contact our webmaster. A follow-up edition with any requested edits will be published later this week, if necessary.
We encouraged students to work on cover designs over the holiday break in preparation for this year's annual yearbook cover design contest. If your student completed a template, contest entries can be submitted to Camille this week. The deadline for entries is January 20th, and all Stanbridge junior high and high school students are invited to create a cover design for the 2014-2015 Stanbridge yearbook. Camille has listed the requirements for this year's contest and posted templates on our Files & Forms page--cover design templates will also be available in Camille's room this week. Finalists will be determined by a staff and student vote, with the winning entry being used as our yearbook cover.
Finally, a reminder that Bulldogs basketball team practices resume this week, with the first practice of the new year this Wednesday after school. Coach Mark Kelley has been working to schedule games for the 2015 season, and once the dates and times are finalized, we will post a schedule on the Bulldogs Athletics page.
We're ready to tip-off 2015 at school tomorrow. Hope you had a great holiday break--look forward to seeing everyone back on campus!
