Welcome to Newbridge Road Elementary School, established 1924. 

As you may know, 2024 has been an exciting year for the Newbridge Road Elementary School community. Our beautiful building has served this community for 100 years. This milestone was marked with a joyous Centennial Celebration in the spring of 2024. I was fortunate enough to be part of the momentous event. 

While uncovering the rich history of Newbridge Road School, it became clear that this school has been, and will remain, a cornerstone in North Bellmore. It became clear that the mission and core values of those who came before us mirror our current mission and core values. It became clear that whenever it was or for however long it was, those people who have been a part of Newbridge’s history and Newbridge’s community, have been deeply impacted by their experiences here. At Newbridge Road, we welcome all children and all families to our learning community so that they may grow and flourish together. 

Being part of the Newbridge Road School community means taking pride in who you are, where you come from, how you treat others, and what you represent; it means demonstrating Newbridge HEART at all times. At Newbridge Road School, we value Honesty, Empathy, Acceptance, Respect, and Teamwork. All members of our school community- parents, students, teachers, staff and administrators, aim to demonstrate HEART so that our community will continue to thrive for at least another 100 years.

The North Bellmore School District held its annual district art show on May 21. Student work from the five elementary schools was featured at the evening exhibition, which was held in Newbridge Road Elementary School’s cafeteria.

There were drawings, paintings, sculptures and mixed media projects on display, created by students from kindergarten through sixth grade. The work was a sampling of projects created throughout the school year and showcased the various artistic techniques students have learned.

Artwork was completed under the direction of Jillian Bock at John G. Dinkelmeyer and Park Avenue elementary schools, Erica Farley at Martin Avenue and Newbridge Road elementary schools and Amy Lopez at Saw Mill Road Elementary School.

It will be a couple of years before the soon-to-be graduates of the North Bellmore School District are circling the halls of Mepham High School, but on May 20, they got to circle the track. Students from all five elementary schools gathered on the sunny spring day for the annual sixth grade track meet.

The event, which was coordinated by the physical education teachers, featured a mix of short- and long-distance races. It ranged from 50 meters to 800 meters, which was two full laps around the track. After four-person relay races, the day concluded with field events such as discus, javelin, long jump and shot put.

Students wore their school Class of 2024 shirts. In just a few months, they will be unified under one roof at Grand Avenue Middle School, and the track meet was an opportunity to meet their future classmates.

A tree has sprouted inside of Newbridge Road Elementary School, a legacy artwork project that students and staff hope will remain for a long time.

As the school approached its 100th anniversary celebration, the Beautification Club worked on a new mural in the hallway outside of the main office. Under the direction of art teacher Erica Farley, fifth and sixth graders painted the tree trunk and branches during recess sessions over several weeks.

Ultimately, all Newbridge Road students will contribute to the project by adding their handprints as the leaves. Ms. Farley said the plan is to have each grade level do their handprints in a different color.

“One hundred years from now, hopefully it will still be here,” Ms. Farley said, adding that she is very proud of the students for their hard work.

This is the third project undertaken this year by the new Beautification Club, which has about 45 members from the fifth and sixth grades. They created a courtyard mural of the school’s tiger mascot and made four “Paws Places” on the blacktop outside, which are paw prints that students can go to when they need to take a pause. That project was done in partnership with the Tiger Club.

Ms. Farley said that the Beautification Club has been very busy in its inaugural year and students have been excited to contribute their ideas and talents.

“The goal is to beautify the school, create a sense of community and give students more opportunities in the arts,” she said.
