Bradford Elementary School
April 25, 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It is amazing how fast time goes during a school year. It is hard to believe that we are already nearing the last month of this school year. We are so thankful to have the opportunity each day to work with your children at Bradford Elementary School. It has been a great year so far. I would like to take this opportunity to share with you a few updates for the rest of this school year.
State testing in underway at this time. Second grade will be completing their assessments this week. Students in grades 3-6 will test next week Monday through Friday. Our students and staff have worked tremendously hard this year to prepare for the next level. We are excited to see their progress throughout the testing process. We will be rewarding hard-work with popsicles daily, along with jumpers on scheduled field days. We are in need of popsicle donations. Popsicle donations can be dropped off at the main office or sent to school with your student.
We have several additional exciting events coming up over the next few weeks as we close out this school year. These are listed on the back of this note for your convenience. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding the listed events. Most of these will be on our school facebook page and school website.
We are still taking applications for the summer program. Please contact the school if you need an application to be sent home with your child. We will have summer reading days and events on June 19th, 20th, 21st, and 25th when students can come to the school and hear a special guest, read books, etc. They are welcome to take advantage of these literacy opportunities on these days during allotted time frames whether they are enrolled in the summer program or not. We would like to provide as many opportunities as possible for the students to have access to literary resources throughout the summer.
We are excited about the remainder of the school year and all that is planned. We hope to prepare your children as best as possible for the next level and continue to cultivate an environment where students are successful and constantly "growing" as students!
