This week in Bridge for our coping module, each student (and staff member) will begin brainstorming ideas for their "Goal Poster." We discussed with the students that goals are something you with to accomplish and setting goals gives you a direction. It is important to set goals in all areas of your life. Therefore, we focused on Health/Wellness, Career, Personal/Family, Financial/Material Items, and Bucket List Ideas.
1) Health & Wellness: Eating well, yoga, run
2) Career: To become and assistant principal
3) Personal/Family: Married, Children
4) Financial/Material Items: Buy a bigger home with a yard, vacation home/beach house
5) Life Bucket List: Travel more (Greece, Fiji, Australia, and many more!)
Next week, the students will use their brainstormed ideas and divide them up on a scale of "no control," "some control," and "all control" to represent how much ability they have to control each goal. They will research for pictures and images to represent the goals they chose.
We are looking forward to see what goals the students have for their future!
Burlington High School is hosting its annual Back-to-School Night TONIGHT from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Parents of freshman or any new students are invited to arrive at 6:00 p.m. for a brief presentation and the opportunity for a question and answer session with administrators.
Parents will have the opportunity to meet teachers and familiarize themselves with their child’s schedule while following an abbreviated school day. Teachers will provide parents with a course overview and outline their expectations. National Honor Society students will serve as guides, and guidance counselors and administrators will be available throughout the evening for support.
This year, class times will be ten minutes long as shown below, and as a reminder please bring your son/daughter's schedule with you:

Our Module theme this month is "Getting to Know You" and Goal Setting. This week, our students are focusing primarily on getting to know the teachers and one another in the Bridge Program. Some students may be new to us (or even high school) this year, while some are returning to Bridge.
To help get to know the students, they each participated in the "T-Shirt Activity" module. Students filled in a drawing of a T-Shirt template that represented their interests and goals. Our students were very creative and we are excited to learn more about them as the year goes on!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
