Dear BridgePrep South Tampa Family,
We are about to embark on another amazing school year, and I for one am thrilled to have you part of our 2017-2018 BPA Tampa Family. We have lots to look forward to, starting July 26th at 5:30pm for our New Parents desiring an orientation tailored to you and your child’s BPA experience. On July 27th at 5:30pm we will be offering an orientation to our returning parents to address current state of affairs and changes that have been created to better serve your child’s needs. These days will roll seamlessly into our “Meet the Teacher” day for students to find their classes and meet their instructors on August 9th from 11:30am until 5:30pm. Students first day of school will begin August 10, 2017 (Thursday).
Our Children: We will continue our computer blended course into our curriculum which will enhance your child’s growth in reading, comprehension, fluency, writing, as well as in computer skills with digital literacy. Additionally, our Spanish program for all K-8 will be based in literacy and will help each child be better prepared for the global economy.
Our Staff: We have grown and hired new teachers and staff to enhance our learning environment. You will see lots of favorite familiar faces and new ones that are eager to be a part of our community. I am so very excited about what this team will offer our BPA children.
Our Families: It takes a village to create a rewarding and successful school year, and in Bridgeprep fashion, we have many wonderful events you won’t want to miss! PLEASE stay connected and check out our Website, FaceBook, and Phone App daily. The yearly school calendar is available on both the website and phone App.
I welcome emails, calls, and personal visits to address any questions and or comments that may arise. I thank you, in advance, for your patience as my focus is on children’s academic programs based on data collected. Therefore, my availability during student hours may be limited between 8:00am and 3:30pm as I will be an active instructional leader focused on our child(ren), rigorous instruction, and consistent safe learning environment for all.
We look forward to creating memories that will have BridgePrep South Tampa going over and beyond. We will work together “as a family” to grow, expand, and sustain an innovative academic environment with your support.
As always, my door is open and I welcome you to BridgePrep Academy South Tampa 2017-2018 school year.
