PRESIDENT’S LETTER: ELYSE THIBODEAUX A Texas-transplant from Illinois, Elyse Thibodeaux’s life hasn’t ended up where or how most people would have assumed she would be at this point in her life. The 56-year-old mother and grandmother left a 10-year run as the business manager of a weekly newspaper seven years ago to take a less than traditional road to success and she has been kicking butt ever since. It was a big step considering most of her life had been spent behind a desk and using a telephone making sure people received their invoices and billing statements. Now, if she wanted, the fifth-degree black belt martial arts instructor could probably get a gig as a collection officer but she is happy teaching children and adults at her Tiger Rock Martial Arts Academy in Bridge City. It’s a community that was nearly destroyed in 2008 by Hurricane Ike and Thibodeaux has spent years volunteering and helping the community - all while running a business some may have doubted would be so successful. She joined the Bridge City Chamber of Commerce in 2010 and took over as president in January 2017 after serving the two previous years as president-elect of the Chamber of Commerce Board and Ambassador Chair. In reaching the pinnacle, Thibodeaux worked her way up from member to secretary of the Ambassadors to Vice President and at each step she kept her focus on helping her community. Asked why she devotes so much time to the community, Thibodeaux said her goals have always paralleled those of the Bridge City Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber helps, not only, her business but all businesses in Bridge City. And keeping those businesses viable is good for everyone. “If I can help make all the Chamber member businesses successful then the community will grow and become greater because of it,” she said. Looking back, Thibodeaux is a 1979 graduate of New Trier West High School in Northfield, IL and from there she went on to earn a two-year degree from Oakton Community College in Des Plaines. She and her husband, Gary, have been married for 26 years and have raised three sons and, so far, has three grandchildren. Her business career in Southeast Texas began at Time Warner Cable Advertising Sales, where she handled traffic and billing for that department. But after 10 years, she decided to join The Examiner Newspaper as it’s business manager and a decade later she risked everything to open her Tiger Rock Martial Arts Academy. The latter seems to be a passion she will never give up. All three of her grandsons, her youngest son and her husband are now involved in martial arts and Thibodeaux has become a force in her field. The franchise she opened in 2010 came after four years of serving as a martial arts instructor in Beaumont. Since that time, she continued her education, not only, in martial arts but also through numerous business summits and seminars. It’s her way of bettering herself so she can bring that knowledge back to Bridge City and help develop new ideas to better her community.

Bridge City, the “Golden Link to the Triangle” is located on the west bank of Cow Bayou adjacent to Sabine Lake and the Neches River. Sabine lake is a 78-square mile saltwater lake opening into the Gulf of Mexico. To enter or leave Bridge City you must cross one of three historic bridges. At the south end of town is the scenic Rainbow Bridge, the south’s tallest bridge. The bridge’s 176-foot clearance height resulted from requirements that any U. S. Navy ship could pass under it. The sister span is the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge, the first cable-stayed bridge in the state of Texas. At the north end of town are double bridges crossing Cow Bayou on State Highway 87. One of which is The Cow Bayou Bridge, a flat, concrete, swing bridge that was dedicated and opened in 1941. The bridge rests on a central concrete pier and pivots at a 90 degree angle to allow watercraft to pass. It is one of two of its kind and age in the entire state. Bridge City, surrounded on three sides by water, is a paradise for fisherman, bird watchers and water sport enthusiasts. Enjoy fishing, crabbing, boating, water skiing and many other water sports on the beautiful cypress tree-lined Cow Bayou. Both fresh and saltwater fishing are just minutes away. Camera enthusiasts snap prizewinning pictures of the Monarch butterflies that stop at Bailey’s Fish Camp in October before their annual winter migration across the Gulf of Mexico. Nature trails are in abundance with marshy sites on Cow Bayou and Sabine Lake. Observe birds, alligators, native plants and mosses, and much more. Protected coastal wetlands habitat includes 5,536 acres in Lower Neches Wildlife Management. LUKE (Let Us Known Everything) is a “Notice System” for problems in Bridge City.

2017 BUSINESS OF THE YEAR BRIDGE CITY RADIATOR Bridge City Radiator & Auto Repair began business in 1979 as Roc’s Radiator, a part time business owned by Kirk and Shirley Roccaforte. They purchased City Gulf in 1982 and became Bridge City City Gulf and Radiator Inc. This location was sold in 1987 and moved to Texas Ave. and Farm Dr. doing business as Bridge City Radiator & Auto Repair. After years of hard work and planning, Kirk and Shirley Roccaforte built and moved to their current location - 1665 Miller Dr. (FM 408) in July 1997. In 2015 the Roccaforte family suffered a great loss when Shirley was called home. She is fondly remembered by the Bridge City community and beyond. Well known for her unique customer service abilities she will not soon be forgotten as is apparent by a memorial in her honor at Bridge City Radiator. This family business started by Kirk and Shirley Roccaforte continues to flourish today with Aaron Roccaforte, and employees Tara Crone and Kyle Manuel. “We are proud to be part of Bridge City”, said owner Kirk Roccaforte.

BRIDGE CITY ISD / 2017-2018 Mission Statement: The mission of Bridge City Independent School District, a progressive family/community-supported educational system, is to provide a comprehensive well-balanced instructional program in a safe learning environment to ensure the development of caring, responsible, productive graduates capable of contributing in a global society. Bridge City ISD has a long-standing tradition of excellence for generations dating back to 1941. Much has changed in our community, state, nation, and world since those days. Communities and school districts must evolve through the schools, churches, city government, businesses, industry, and community organizations to remain a vibrant, productive community our citizens are proud to call home. Our school district is no exception. Bridge City ISD has evolved through the years from a single school house educating dozens of students to the current student enrollment of 2,943 students on four campuses in 2017. The primary focus for our schools is to provide our students with the best educational foundation from when they arrive in Pre-K to their graduation. Upon SUPERINTENDENT TODD LINTZEN graduation we expect our students to be able to experience success as a University student, military personnel, or in any of the multiple trades that our area has to offer for gainful employment. Bottom line – we want them to be productive citizens in our community who are proud of their school district as well as community. The path to achieving our mission begins at Bridge City Elementary where our students learn their foundational skills through our early childhood educational program. Students and their parents are able to participate in Family Literacy Night, career exploration, Life Science presentations/activities to name a few educational opportunities for the BCE students. While the opportunities for students and families are too numerous to name, we always strive to expand our offerings to provide a meaningful education. Once the students enter 3rd grade they enter the exciting world of Bridge City Intermediate School. Our 3rd through 5th grade students receive a quality education as well as begin their exploration into clubs and organizations that will be the foundation for years of leadership opportunities. The excellent staff and administration prepare our students for success and begin exploring the path of civic responsibility through activities such as Meet in the Middle, Student Council, Honor Choir, and book club. These organizations assist to support and create opportunities for our students to help our community as well as other communities in need during tragic times. Building our Bridge City Foundation! Their educational as well as extracurricular pace quickens when our students enter Bridge City Middle School grades 6-8. Students are able to take advanced level courses that will count for high school course credit. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) is a great opportunity for our students to explore programs and projects at a higher level. Band, UIL Academics, Choir, Art, and Athletics are formal opportunities for our students that is the gateway for future high level competition. The sky is the limit for students attending Bridge City High School. Students are able to take advanced level courses, Career-Technical courses, Band, Choir, and Theater Arts. Extracurricular consists of 18 athletic teams, Marching/Jazz Band, Art, Choir, Cheer, and Strutters. Our students earn scholarships valued at thousands of dollars each year due to their numerous accomplishments through academics, arts, military appointments, and athletics. As Superintendent of Bridge City ISD, I envision a district that continues to evolve to meet the needs of our students through exceptional professional educators in state of the art facilities utilizing the most up-to-date instructional resources. All of this will ensure a foundation of post-secondary preparedness for our students that allows them to be successful in the military, college, business, or industry. In summary, I expect to work with the Board of Trustees, administration, teachers, staff, students, parents, and community to create, secure, and build the very best instructional program, educational environment, educational facilities, and athletic facilities. The excellence enjoyed by past generations is responsible to ensure the tradition of excellence continues for the current and future Bridge City generations.




Saturday, April 1, 2017, was the launch date for “Reflectors for Responders�- a project that was born out of Youth Leadership SETX. 6 BCHS junior students-Kaylee Flannigan, Maggie Garcia, Gabby Howe, Mackenzie Land, Landon Luna, and Madison Wilson were interviewed and chosen last fall and met with student leaders from across the region. Bridge City-Orangefield and Vidor students as well as business leaders came up with the project of placing a blue reflector on the street marking fire hydrants for our first responders. BC students did a gumbo fundraiser as well as raised money during lunches to purchase reflectors- there are 275+ fire hydrants in the Bridge City area. Saturday, under the direction of BCISD Superintendent Mr. Todd Lintzen- a member of LSET the project began at BCISD Administration Building as many community leaders-including city council, BCFD, BCISD School Board members and BCISD Admin joined forces with students to complete project. Throughout this process, students presented at a City Council as well as a School Board Meeting and learned many leadership lessons as a result. Students would like to thank Mr. Lintzen especially for his time and dedication to this project.


BCISD PARENT-TEACHER ORGANIZATION While teachers are busy teaching and students are busy learning, dedicated PTO volunteers are busy ensuring that the teachers, students, and staff at Bridge City Elementary, Intermediate, and Middle school are showered with encouragement, appreciation, and helped in many different ways. Jennifer Womack has a knack for leadership and uses that talent to head the PTO at BCE. Jennifer said volunteering for PTO means she gets to make wonderful memories for not only her own children but also all children on campus. “In additional, we’re able to show appreciation and admiration for our teachers, administrators, and staff who do so much to influence the future of these children,” she said. BCE’s PTO does various fundraisers throughout the year to fund events and supplies or equipment the school might want or need but not have the budget for. Throughout the year, BCE PTO sponsors Donuts with Dad, Muffins with Mom, May Madness, and Teacher Appreciation, to name a few. At Bridge City Intermediate, Kristen Snell hurries down the halls with boxes of treats and bottled water headed to yet another PTO event. She serves as president of the campus’ PTO and makes it her mission to help whomever she can each day. With her board members and a slew of volunteers, Kristen leads the charge at BCI where her children are students. “I love getting to know my boys’ teachers and helping them because I know they spend so much of their time teaching my children,” she said. “I appreciate their dedication to the class and school and I love to be able to make their day a little easier.” At BCI, the PTO fundraises many ways, including t-shirt and spirit sales, pizza dough sales, and, for the first time this year, a Daddy-Daughter dance. Those funds support teacher and classroom supplies, library books, P.E. equipment, teacher appreciation celebrations, student incentive events, and field trips. Aside from the money that PTO provides, the group’s volunteers are at the campus daily, making copies for teachers and staff, helping in the library and cafeteria, and providing support wherever necessary. Julie Landry, who likes to be involved in her children’s lives, leads the PTO at BCMS. “By volunteering, the teachers and the staff get to know me as a parent and a citizen,” Julie said. “I feel like I have more of a voice on issues that might arise, too.” Julie likes that her children see her and the other volunteers on campus – whether it’s for Food Fridays, when PTO brings in fast food for the students to purchase, or setting up for appreciation lunches in the teacher break room. Like at the intermediate campus, the middle school’s PTO fundraises with t-shirt sales, as well as candy sales. Through those sales, PTO hosts student activity days, including incentive events for attendance, A and A/B honor roll, STAAR testing, and end of the year celebrations.

BRIDGE CITY PUBLIC LIBRARY, INC. 101 Parkside Drive Bridge City Texas 77611

Story Times At The Bridge City Public Library

Children aged birth through 5 years enjoy being members of the Bayou Buddies, the story time group sponsored by the Bridge City Public Library. Their teachers, K’Lynn Borg and Heidi Welch, begin by everyone doing a good morning song in sign language followed by reading a book with the day’s theme. After this a poem sheet with activities such as finger plays and body motions are done together with the teachers. A second book is then read followed with a parent- led craft that matches the book theme of the day. After all this hard work, the children socialize with each other in various play activities while their parents interact. Before going home, snacks are distributed and another successful learning experience is over. Five of these programs are offered on Wednesdays throughout the school year. Registration is required. In the summer time, the Friends of the Library offer story time programs, sponsored by the Texas State Library, on Wednesdays for children Pre-K through 5th grade accompanied by a parent. A timed reading log is available for those who wish to participate in the reading program. Those who return their logs will receive a bag of goodies at the end of the programs. This year’s guests include Stephanie Harren’s Reptiles, Stark Museum of Arts, Tiger Rocks Martial Arts, Subzero Ice Cream and Gator Country.

First Responders Honored at Bridge City National Night Out The weather was nice and the turnout was great this past Tuesday, October 4, 2016, for the 1st Annual Bridge City National Night Out at Bridge City Park. Attendees were treated to free food, games, give-a-ways and lots of children’s activities courtesy of thirty-four local businesses and organizations from the area. Certificates of appreciation were presented to the Bridge City Police Department, Bridge City Volunteer Fire and Rescue, Acadian Ambulance, and Orange County Sheriff’s Office. This event is held on the first Tuesday in October each year throughout the state of Texas in an effort to build good community relations between local law enforcement and first responders and the people they serve.
