To develop requisite life skills, such as teamwork and problem-solving, the students also participate in weekly modules. Our final module beginning last week 5/9 for the school year centers around community service and giving back to the community. Students wrote proposals and voted on which project they wanted to support.
The top three choices were:
Ultimately, students decided to make fleece blankets for Project Linus, an organization that provides love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers.” Students chose the organization as it shares many of the same caring philosophies as the Bridge Program. We will start these projects in June as we spend the next week gathering materials and supplies. Pictures to follow...
This week on 5/9/17 the students in Bridge are going to focus on Sense of Purpose. What is a Sense of Purpose? And how can we bring a Sense of Purpose to our lives?

Sense of Purpose: A stable and generalized intention to accomplish something that is at the same time meaningful to the self and consequential for the world beyond the self.
Then, we discussed six guidelines on how to build Sense of Purpose to our lives:
As the summer is approaching us, two big events are on the minds of high school seniors. The events are Senior Prom and Graduation. After a challenging and stressful four year career at BHS, seniors are at the point where they can relax. With privileges such as prom, students are expected to make smart decisions. Please advise that if attending parties or events where alcohol may be served, plan ahead and work out a plan to get there and back safely.
Our field trip to Wamesit Lanes was successful! Below are some pictures of the fun! Can’t wait for next year:
This week, on Friday April 7th, 2017, we have our field trip to Wamesit Lanes! We will be leaving at 8:00 from BHS and heading back around 1:00pm to be back for regular dismissal. Just a reminder: Please wear comfortable clothing and bring cash to purchase lunch from the cafe. Students will spend the first half bowling and second half after lunch at the arcade.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
