Summer Bridge 2019

Here at our school we try to make our students feel comfortable. So each summer we have our Bridge program. Our Bridge program helps our incoming students to transition into our school. This year about 200 students participated in the program. Learning, making memories and having some fun is what the program is about.  Today was the last day of the program and we ended the day with a scavenger hunt and some special treats. The students and staff had a blast! See you in September.

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.
