Bridge Program 2018

This week over 200 incoming freshmen participated in our annual Bridge Program. The Bridge program helps to bridge the gap between middle school and high school. Students participate in activities geared to promoting comfort and community as they enter into high school. Students interact with student leaders, assistant principals and other key members of Dewey family. The four day program also helps them make friends and know some of the exciting opportunities we have in our school. The program ends with presentations from each academy and a scavenger hunt, certificates for each student who participated, and then of course ice cream and ices! Everyone had a blast! Here are some pictures.
