Welcome to Breen Elementary!

Emergency Contact Cards & Parent Portal Accounts

Hello Breen Parents and Guardians,
 
Thank you for coming to Back to School Night tonight.  A strong relationship between you and your child's school is very important.  I hope that you will soon use the information you received last night to create a parent portal account.  When you do create this account, please don't neglect to add all emergency contacts to the emergency card section.  For those of you familiar with previous emergency cards, it is very important to add emergency contact information of relatives and friends in case you can't be here when your child is ill or injured.  Please try to complete the online information by Monday, August 29.  
 
Best Regards,
 
Chuck Thibideau

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.
