About Our School

Our beautiful new school opened in 2006 with Ruby Bridges, herself, coming to our dedication in October. We celebrate our diversity, value educational achievement and take pride in being the future. In addition to a fabulous staff, we have an active hardworking PTA and three afterschool programs. We have a variety of intervention and enrichment programs to help meet the needs of every student, a garden program and afterschool enrichment classes. Our students can learn the responsibilities of peer leadership by being Junior Coaches, Peacemakers and members of the student council. When you come visit our  school you will see active learners and enthusiastic teachers.

PLEASE HELP US CELEBRATE FAMILY HERITAGE NIGHT tomorrow night, Friday, April 17, 6:15 I hope you all will join us for a celebration of our diversity and for a great opportunity to get to know other families and taste a variety of foods from all over the world. Over 25 different languages are spoken by families at our school. Some of those languages are Arabic, Cantonese, Tagalog, Spanish, Vietnamese, Swahili, Farsi, Punjabi, Tigrinya, Italian, and many, many more. We are asking families to prepare and bring one of their favorite meals to share with other families and to wear clothing that represents their culture or country. The evening includes a raffle of books and cash! Other Annoucements Don’t delay, order your Ruby Bridges T-Shirt TODAY!!! If you’ve ever wondered how you can get one of the RED Ruby Bridges T-shirts, here’s your chance. You can purchase T-shirts for your children and yourself so that you and your children can wear the RED T-Shirt every Friday just like the rest of the students and staff. The yellow order forms are being sent home today so please return your cash and completed order form by Wed., April 29. State Testing: Grades 3-5 will be taking California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) from April 14 to May 14. This means these students MUST have a good night’s sleep, breakfast, and report to school on time so that they are alert, relaxed and ready to begin the test by 8:30AM. ASTI Legacy Gala Silent Auction: On Sat., April 18, from 5:00PM to 8:00PM, Alameda Science and Technology Institute (ASTI) is sponsoring a live and silent auction that includes live music performed by Jim Franz, appetizers, and wine for sale by the glass. This event is being held at the Alameda Elks Lodge. Alameda Education Fund: This year’s Salute to Education is Fri., April 24 2015 from 6:00 – 9:00 PM at Rhythmix Cultural Works. One of our teachers, Jeff Gordon, is being recognized for using Scratch; a computer program designed to teach students programming skills while helping them learn the fourth grade mathematics standards. Nicole Lemmerman and Amy Hopper will also be recognized for volunteering at our school. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased online at alamedaeducationfoundation.org. School Accountability Report Card: Every school in California annually publishes a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The SARC contains information about the condition and performance of the school and is available on our website. For more information about our school or the SARC, parent/guardians and community members can contact Principal Wilson or district office. Hard copies of SARCs will be provided upon request. Share your passion: Working at Ruby Bridges as the music teacher, I would like to expose the students to music from all over the world. So I would like to invite parents /guardians to come in and introduce our students to instruments and music from their culture. If you are interested in sharing your love of music with our students, please email me at jegger@alameda.k12.ca.us and I will schedule a time for your visit. Julie Egger
