Bruce Events

 Hello Bruce Families!   

While your child is home during the school closure, we are expecting them to spend 3-4 hours doing schoolwork each day. That breaks down to about an hour or 45 minutes per class.  We also expect that they will spend some time doing art

 activities and some physical activity.  New assignments are posted weekly by the teachers. 
 
All of our grade levels are also hosting at least weekly “meet ups” with students using the Zoom platform.  Information about 

how to access a Zoom meeting is posted in the Google classroom by the teachers. 
 
Please follow the Bruce School on Twitter, where Ms. Merz posts daily updates in English and Spanish.  Go to @ABBruceschool

After a year of having to share other facilities, staff welcomed all grades of Bruce School students back to their school. Post-fire renovations were completed over the summer and everyone was excited to return to their own classrooms. Good luck Bruce students and have a great year!
