CWC SUPPORTS
BRIDGES ACCELERATED LEARNING CENTER

Bridges Accelerated Learning Center is an academic alternative school that provides an opportunity for "at-risk" students to complete the required course work necessary for high school graduation. Because the school does not have a PTA, CWC steps in to help in many ways. It collects items for the Bridges students like
pencils and pens. CWC does something special for the teachers each month . . . providing a special treat, lunch or gift cards.

CWC sponsors the annual awards ceremony and reception and graduation for
graduating students and their families. CWC provides tassels for all graduating seniors at the awards ceremony.

Graduating seniors at Bridges are eligible to apply for the Dick Dennison Memorial Scholarship.
