Dear Ordway families,

Our hearts are heavy with the tragic information shared about the three Bainbridge teens who died in a car accident last week. All three have connections to Ordway and our thoughts of care and support go out to their families. The staff and I want to share information that may help families during this sad time, assure you that we are doing everything we can to get through this difficult event, and to suggest ways you may help your own children. 

You can help your children simply by talking and listening to them. We don’t always know how a student will be affected in a crisis, but you know your child the best of anyone. Be prepared for your child to do any of the following: 
  • Claim not to be affected
  • Ask a lot of questions
  • Act agitated and angry
  • Try abnormally hard to be good
  • Withdrawn
  • Have frightful dreams
Counselors are available as well as teachers and other staff to serve as resources for our students, staff, and families as they go through the grieving process or have the need to talk or express difficult feelings.  We encourage you to be sensitive with your child and to call us if we can help you in any way. Thank you for your support of our young people.

We will continue to share information about how the Ordway community will participate in a school memorial that is being planned in the teens’ honor this spring and also share ways to acknowledge and support the families who are going through this unimaginable hardship. Please call us at 206-842-7637 if you need assistance or would like to be a part of the parent support group for the Ordway memorial planning.

Yours in support and care,
Melinda Reynvaan

MATH CURRICULM ADOPTION PROCESS


We are currently in the process of selecting a new mathematics curriculum for our BISD students in Kindergarten-5th Grade. This new curriculum will be implemented in the 2021-22 school year along with continuing professional development. In an effort to best serve all our students your input is necessary in this process. If you have more than one child attending Kindergarten-5th grade, please feel free to complete separate surveys for each child.  We appreciate your time and value your input. Thank you!

El Distrito de Bainbridge Island está en el processo de selección de un curriculo nuevo de las Matemáticas para los estudiantes en los grados K-5.
