Bridger is a School of ISD Character
Bridger proudly supports the ISD's Character Education program. Each month, a specific character trait is highlighted throughout the school for students, staff and our school community.
Ford's Oratory Program Provided to All Buffaloes
Bridger is proud to participate in the Ford’s Theatre National Oratory Program, an intensive year-long program that helps teachers integrate oratory and performance as teaching strategies in history and ELA classrooms. As a part of this program, students regularly practice authentic literacy (reading, writing, speaking, and listening) as a way to close read and connect with complex texts. Students will also work with a professional teaching artist at Ford’s Theatre throughout the year to create and perfect original oratory works that will be presented at the Truman Presidential Library. Four Bridger students will represent their peers in May as they deliver their original oratory works on the stage at Ford’s Theatre in Washington D.C.
