    Awesome job Bridgedale!

    By Joanne Smith, Bridgedale Academy Mom


    He is so happy and thriving thanks to your guidance, help and grooming.

    I have been thinking about Bridgedale and all of our friends there that helped Ryan achieve a goal of his. I wanted to send you a very big THANK YOU!

    Ryan loves Culver. He is in exactly the right place.

    He is so happy and thriving thanks to your guidance, help and grooming.

    It's so nice that he still gets to see (Bridgedale English teacher) Mrs. Kuhl (also a Culver mom) occasionally. He loves to see a friendly “Mom” face when away!  Thank you for being so good to him.

    I thought you might enjoy a picture of our guy celebrating and honoring Culver's 2018 Graduates!! 

    Ryan (on the left in this photo) has his military game-face on and so he doesn’t have a smile.

    But I can assure you he has so much pride and happiness being the stoic Culver cadet.

    (And Mrs. Kuhl, congratulations to you, your husband and of course your 2018 Culver graduate son!)

    Thank you again for everything you do!

    This is a heartfelt thank you.  The confidence and happiness Ryan has had at Culver and while at Bridgedale have transformed him.

    I will never forget what you and the teachers have done for him. You are a part of who he is today!

    And what do Bridgedale teachers say about Bridgedale?

    "This is such a special place!! It is life changing for these boys as it centers around strong relationships that encourage strong academic growth. It’s a hockey school, but so much more than that. 

    "It’s a pleasure to come to work everyday. Thank you for creating such a positive, caring environment."

    Kristi Florey, Bridgedale Math Teacher
