The Bridges Academy is committed to teaching our students the value of giving back to the community. We plan a series of activities for all ages throughout the school year to give our students the opportunity to do community outreach projects.
COMMUNITY OUTREACH EVENTS
Many of our community outreach events are in conjunction with our Parents’ Association.
The Sullivan Family Relief
A collection has been taken for the Sullivan family, who lost everything in a fire at the end of the summer. Families and staff have contributed.
Trunk or Treat
Over $300 will be donated to UNICEF Hurricane Dorian Relief from part of the Trunk or Treat proceeds.
The Bridges Academy had a special assembly to honor our veterans on 11/8. Our Student Council officers gave speeches, some students shared their artwork, and the K-8 students sang. Grandparents and special friends were also invited to attend.
Veterans Day and Honor Society
Our Honor Society students led a card writing campaign to veterans with all the students from Pre-K – 8th grade. The cards were distributed to the VA Hospital in Northport.
Our 4th- 8th grade students made their first visit with the residents at The Bristal last Friday.
Nourish Babylon is an outreach program at the Christ Episcopal Church that serves community meals. In the main lobby we are collecting donated items to assist with their holiday meal service such as paper towels, trash bags, hair nets, food service gloves, etc.
Long Island Cares, Inc.
We have a food collection in the main lobby until 11/26.
