    Ensure a school culture where every student is respected, safe, academically challenged and engaged:

    Bridgeport Middle School is hosting the AWSP Middle Level Regional Conference today March 7th.  Up to 150 students from other schools are taking part.   

    Ensure rigorous and relevant learning opportunities:

    Family Leadership Institute:  Parents and their school children traveled to EWU on Thursday March 2nd to visit the college and tour the campus.  Presentations were given by admissions, financial aid, and the CAMP program.

    Ensure high quality and effective personnel in all positions:

    Career Fairs have started.  Teachers, if you will be retiring or looking for a new position, let your principal know as soon as possible.  Currently we are recruiting Elementary Ed.  (1 position), Special Education,           MS CTE, Elementary Counselor.

    Ensure strong partnerships with students, families, and community:

    Middle School AVID has been working all year on a global awareness initiative in order to attend WE day in Seattle on April 21st, 2017. Bridgeport Middle school will only receive 15 tickets and that includes the Advisor so that means only 14 students will go.  It is at the Key Arena in Seattle 9am-2:30pm

    Ensure district resources support the strategic plan
