Dear Minter Bridge families,
It is almost time for the new school year! The staff and I would like to welcome our students and their families. Whether you have been a part of our community or are just joining our community, we are excited to have you at Minter Bridge. Each family and student is a valued member of our school.
Excitement and dedication are two words to describe my feelings as your principal. I have been working for Hillsboro School District for 18 years as a principal, school counselor, instructional coach, and classroom teacher. Hillsboro is home to me!
Our goal at Minter Bridge is to provide our students with the skills and knowledge to be successful in the future. The success of our students depends on their readiness to adapt to new situations and be a participant in our increasingly global society. We endeavor to provide learning experiences that will allow students to realize their potential and to challenge and stimulate their cognitive, social and linguistic development. Our Dual Language Program is one way to meet these goals. There are many benefits to Dual Language and we are so grateful to offer this program to our community.
Our program provides an opportunity for all students to:
- become bilingual and bi-literate in Spanish and English.
- increase their cognitive development and achieve proficiency in all academic subjects.
- cultivate an understanding and appreciation for people from different cultures and build a community through cross-cultural friendships.
Minter Bridge offers English only options. We have small group English only instruction at Kindergarten through second grade and English only classrooms at third through sixth grade.
Minter Bridge is an inclusive school with classrooms that meet student needs and family choices.
I am glad you are a part of our community.
