A Special, "Thank You!"

Thank you to Breen parent Rick Miller, of Richard Miller Flooring, for donating his time, materials, and expertise to make Breen's student tile wall a beautiful display at Breen.  A special thanks is also owed to Christi Jones for deciding that Breen needed a student tile wall and seeing the project through to completion.

Enrichment Class Survey

Enrichment Class Survey
We got off to a great start last year with our after school enrichment classes. lt is a goal in our 5 Year Strategic Plan. This survey will give us an idea of the classes that interest students. We would like all students to participate in this survey and choose 4 after school enrichment classes that would most interest them. Additional classes may be written next to "other". Our plan is to offer classes that would be free or low cost.

Bridges Math Program

How Will My Child Learn Math This Year?  

Your child’s classroom will use Bridges in Mathematics second edition, a comprehensive curriculum for grades K–5.  Bridges is a rigorous program designed to address the new math standards in a way that’s enjoyable and accessible to all learners.

The curriculum focuses on developing in students a deep understanding of math concepts, proficiency with key skills, and the ability to solve new and complex problems. Learning activities tap into the intelligence and strengths all students have by presenting mathematically powerful material alive with language, pictures, and movement.

Students in a Bridges classroom talk about math, describe observations, explain methods, and ask questions. They are encouraged to find multiple ways to solve problems and show different ways of thinking. This is a vital way to help students build more flexible and efficient ways to solve increasingly complex problems. Hands-on activities engage them in exploring, developing, testing, discussing, and applying mathematical concepts. 

How can families help?

Visit the Support for Families page on the Math Learning Center website where you will find:

    • Unit overviews that explain what your child will be learning
    • Tips for helping your child with homework
    • Links to more information about each grade level of Bridges
    • Links to additional resources, including books and free online games
