Principal Welcome

As the principal of Bridges Community School, I am thrilled to be a part of such a great team. I am committed to working together to ensure a positive school experience for every Bridges Bear!

Bridges is a community school serving students from Mankato and North Mankato.  Our Site Council is made up of parents and staff who work together to create a collaborative school

environment where students have a high quality educational experience and access to the opportunities and resources to support their social-emotional and academic growth.  

We welcome visitors and parents to our building. If you are in need of a tour, please call the office (387-3800) or join us during one of the two public tours offered in January. I look forward to getting to know each of you and working together to assure learning excellence and readiness for a changing world for every Bridges Bear!

Thank you for visiting our website.
