June Updates
Posted on 06/22/2020

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our Williams parents for their support, cooperation and flexibility during this remote learning process. This has not been easy for anyone and you have really stepped up to the plate and made the best of a tough situation.

More importantly, as I slide into retirement on June 30th, I would like to thank you all for allowing me to serve you and the children of Bridgewater. We have had many ups and downs along the way but you have always been there when I needed your support. I leave with many happy memories, times spent with students, with staff and with the Friends of Williams. As educators we chose this path so that we can spend our days with children and guide them through the process of learning. What happens each and every day is that we learn from them and I have learned a great deal from your children, and I thank them for that.

I hope you all have a safe and relaxing summer. I know you have all spent a good deal of time with your children since March 13th but hopefully, in the weeks ahead, your days will be filled with fun activities instead of remote learning assignments.

Once again thank you to both the students and families of Bridgewater, I will miss you.

Summer packets for Williams students are available online and at the school.

If you find any of the Williams Library books at home you can still return them to the school. There will be a library cart or covered box in front of the building during the mornings for drop offs. 

Our very talented music staff and students put on an Open Mic Night. If you missed it the link is below. The performance was outstanding, everyone did a great job and the amount of talent was impressive. The students who performed should be very proud, as should their families. Having the music program in our district is very important as is the support and dedication of the Junior Music Boosters. Thank you all for making the arts a priority and for all of your volunteer efforts.
