Bridges to Success
Bridges to Success is designed to support rising 7th and 9th grade students as they transition into a new learning environment. The program consists of a one day long orientation at the beginning of each academic year, coupled with designated peer helpers and counselors for one on one mentorship from August-May. As a result, the students have a greater sense of stability and security, attendance and academic performance increase, discipline referrals decrease and students are more at ease in both academic and social settings.
Junior Ambassadors (JA) is a youth leadership program tailored to assist high school juniors in identifying personal leadership potential through exposure to economic development opportunities, government awareness, environmental stewardship, and civic engagement through community service. Since 1998, more than 300 students have completed the program.
The SBCF partners with local restaurants in our community to provide lunch for our feeder pattern principals once a month during the school year. This allows our principals to meet, share ideas and align forces to make opportunities available throughout the district. These meetings help our schools be consistent in initiatives and outreach.
