Bridgeport Elementary School is a proud member of the Chittenango Central School District. Our school is a Kindergarten through Fourth grade school located northwest of Chittenango’s village. We pride ourselves on being an intricate part of the Chittenango and Bridgeport community. Our students’ families and friends know that myself and the staff at Bridgeport cares not only about our school community but the community as a whole.
Our classroom teachers and staff take great pride in providing an enriching inclusive educational experience for all students. It is important to our teachers and staff that they educate the whole child focusing on 21st Century skills in order for our students to be prepared for Middle School, High School and are college and career ready by the time they graduate from Chittenango High School. Our teachers and staff realize that becoming career and college ready begins in Kindergarten. Our curriculum focuses on teaching students to think creatively and critically as the Common Core Learning Standards are implemented. We also strive to help our students learn how to be good communicators and collaborators.
Bridgeport Elementary’s classrooms along with all of our elementary buildings in the Chittenango District are outfitted with iPads, interactive smart boards and a wide range of literature and manipulative materials that allow students to research and explore throughout the school day as they learn and grow.
Parent involvement is welcomed and appreciated. Many parents, grandparents and community members volunteer in classrooms throughout the school day to help us enrich our students’ experiences. We have a strong PTA, whose support has been unwavering throughout the history of our school. We also have a strong Building Planning Team and Character Education Team in which parents and community members serve on.
Our students and staff understand the importance of being a good citizen. All students and adults at Bridgeport Elementary strive each day to be respectful, responsible, kind, show courage and perseverance. These are our pillar words that are taught and modeled throughout the school year.
It is with great pleasure that I serve all of the students and their families at Bridgeport Elementary School. It truly is a special place to work.
