About Us

Bridge Street Elementary School, home of the Bulldogs, sits on ten acres in the center of Yuba City, and serves over 500 students in pre-kindergarten - fifth grades. Bridge Street School was built in 1975 to serve students living in the midtown section of Yuba City.  It remains rich in tradition, and puts forth its personal best to foster a culture built on effort, academic success, and community relationships.  Many current residents of Yuba City attended Bridge Street School as children, and continue to enjoy the relationships established with their peers, while speaking highly of their elementary school teachers and staff.  At Bridge Street School, students are recognized for their outstanding work in character, attendance, academic achievement and growth, and athletics.  Students in 5th grade participate in the annual Shady Creek Outdoor Science Camp, where they participate in hands-on science and environmental activities.

The After School and Safety Program (ASES) serves over 130 students in the areas of enrichment, intervention, homework support, and recreation.  Music is provided for students in 3rd grade and band and strings is provided for 4th and 5th students in our After School Program.

It is important that we prepare our students with skills such as communication, trouble shooting, decision making, leadership, and problem solving.  As we look to the future of Bridge Street School, we focus on bridging the rich traditions established from long ago, coupled with preparing our students for a successful future not only in our local community, but as productive citizens in the world ahead.

    What is SBAC

    SBAC, Smarter Balances Assessment Consortium, has created an assessment system based on the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Bridge Street students in grades 3-5 will be participating in this assessment. The SBAC test is replacing the annual STAR test.

     

    To achieve the goal that all students leave high school ready for college and career, Smarter Balanced is committed to ensuring that assessment and instruction embody the CCSS and that all students, regardless of disability, language or subgroup status, have the opportunity to learn this valued content and to show what they know and can do.

     

    This assessment system will provide student data throughout the academic year that will inform instruction, guide interventions, help target professional development and ensure an accurate measure of each student’s progress toward career and college readiness.

  • track pic Bridge Street School Track
     Hats off to Sweco Products, Inc., and Butte Sand and Gravel Company, in building a track on the Bridge Street School campus during the summer of 2013!

    Michael and Bobby Ziegenmeyer, Sweco Products Inc., helped design, secure equipment, and truck in the Sutter Buttes decomposed granite used in creating the track. Joe Morehead, of Butte Sand and Gravel Co., Inc., is responsible for providing the decomposed granite for the track.
     
    This project was funded solely through these two community businesses. They were amazing, and so very generous with their products and time. This track will be an asset to the health and well-being of Bridge Street School and staff for years to come.
