  • Kristen Gray, a kindergarten literacy teacher, and Allison Gullingsrud, a 1st grade teacher, will attend the Columbia Teachers College Summer Reading Institute.

  • Deborah Side, a music teacher, will attend a masters workshop in Ghana that combines an international methodology of teaching music with a focus on building students’ understanding of African music and culture through games, songs, dances, and instrumental pieces.

  • Technology in the Elementary Classroom: A fifth grade teacher will attend a summer workshop on “Technology in the Elementary Classroom” to learn how to leverage technology to create a more student-centered, inquiry-based learning environment.

 Program Grants

  • Helping English Language Learners: ELL and classroom teachers created an afterschool program designed to ease the transition to Bridge/Lexington for students from non-English speaking families. The class focused on building the students’ vocabulary and their understanding of American culture. A concurrent class was offered to their parents.
  • People on the Move: Immigration to America Past and Present: New York City presents a rich environment in which to explore our nation’s immigration history and present-day realities. Elementary teachers visited selected sites to deepen their knowledge of the subject, then created and implemented a 4th grade curriculum on the American immigrant experience at all six elementary schools.

 School Community Grant

  • Cafeteria Mural and Literacy Library: Bridge used its 2013–2014 School Community Grant to hire a local artist to guide students and faculty in creating a mural for its new cafeteria that ties the school’s character-building initiative (the ABC’s of Attitude, Behavior, and Character) and community building emphasis to the extensive renovations currently underway. Bridge has also dedicated grant funds to purchasing leveled texts for its literacy library.
