Bridgewater Emery Elementary

Bridgewater-Emery Elementary School is a primary level learning site that serves Bridgewater and Emery area students who are in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. We also host Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) preschool classes.

The staff at Bridgewater-Emery Elementary School takes great pride in the care and education we offer our students. Each child has unique and special talents that directly influence their learning process. We believe that it is our responsibility to recognize these gifts and provide the guidance necessary for children to develop and flourish as they begin their educational journey.

Busing Information

In the morning, we have a shuttle bus that brings kids from Bridgewater to the Middle/High School in Emery, then brings kids from Emery Back to the Elementary School in Bridgewater. The shuttle leaves the elementary gym doors at 7:40 am and arrives in Emery at 7:50 am. The shuttle bus returns to the elementary school at 8:10 am depending on road conditions.

After school, there are three shuttle buses that bring elementary students from Bridgewater over to the Middle/High School in Emery. These buses leave Bridgewater at 3:20 pm and arrive in Emery at 3:30 pm. One of these shuttle buses returns to Bridgewater with kids from Emery at 3:45 pm, while the other two buses continue on their routes.

There is a bus room after school for kids that ride the route bus after the shuttle bus returns and for kids that need to wait for older siblings to return on the shuttle bus. All students must be picked by 3:45 pm when the shuttle bus returns.

PBIS Rewards App

Our school uses PBIS Rewards to support our PBIS initiative. PBIS Rewards is a digital platform that allows our staff members to recognize any student, anywhere for meeting behavior expectations. These behavior expectations are defined by the school then communicated and taught. So, when your student displays the behavior that is expected, they are recognized for it. The points earned through that recognition may be used to purchase items from the school's PBIS store.

As a family member, you can monitor your student's progress by downloading the app to your mobile device for free. You'll receive an email or letter with a QR code from your school. Simply open the app and scan this QR code. If you have multiple students using PBIS Rewards, you will be able to add each one separately.

Once the student is added to your app, you will be able to see how many points they have earned, which teacher rewarded them, and how they're spending their points. The app also has a convenient way to respond to messages sent by your child's teachers. You will also be able to see if your student receives any discipline referrals.

Please contact your child's teacher directly with any questions on the PBIS Rewards program or if you need a individualized QR code emailed to you.
