Bridgman Elementary School

Bridgman Elementary School prides itself on educating the whole child. Academic, social emotional and behavioral supports are implemented at every grade level. Academic achievement is an integral part of Bridgman Elementary's growth and success. Students are provided sixty minutes of "What I Need" (WIN) time daily in math and language arts. Academic data is analyzed on an ongoing basis in order to provide research based intervention and enrichment time in a small group provided by all instructional staff.

Bridgman Elementary hosts Holiday Programs and Community Art and Variety Shows. Elementary students also participate in the high school musical productions. Bridgman Elementary offers Reading Bee-lievers, Lego Robotics Club, Garden Club and Science Olympiad as after school programs.

Bridgman Elementary has implemented a Positive Behavior Intervention Support program where students follow the district Guidelines for Success: Safety, Responsibility, Respect and Honesty. All staff regularly recognizes students for possessing these characteristics, and students are rewarded with a "Caught Bee-ing Good" coupon. Students are celebrated throughout the school year.
