Seattle 2e Community,
263 days until school begins!
By now you have heard the good news that we have secured a space for Bridges Academy Seattle’s founding students and families.
Our priorities at the moment are finding the most amazing faculty, administrators and staff that we can. We are conducting Seattle and national searches for all of our positions. As of this writing I have interviewed 16 candidates, with more scheduled after the holidays. It is a major challenge and we expect to be in the search mode for the better part of 2022 as we establish the inaugural faculty and grow it as enrollment increases. Feel free to put the word out about our searches, the information is provided in the career section of this newsletter. We are also working simultaneously on the space modification plans, space and grant funding campaigns and program development. More on that in the new year!
The Bridges Seattle website is scheduled to be live by the end of January - well most of the pages will be live and schedules change. We will be evolving the site through the year as Bridges Seattle comes into being so that it reflects its character, style and community, and develops its identity as a 2e school.
After the winter break we will be announcing the next open houses for families new to the exploration of Bridges and 2e education. Feel free to spread the word of these open houses when announced. Families new to Bridges and those acquainted with Bridges already can also make individual appointments with our admissions office to explore the Bridges option for their child.
We will be on holiday beginning next week and will have limited internet and phone access, but will be back in full swing in January. Have a wonderful winter break and holidays and we will be in touch again soon!
