Bradford had its very first Neurodiversity celebration this week! Thank you to Ms. O’Sullivan, Ms. Ehrmann, Ms. DeCandia, and our SATP/ABA Parents for putting together these wonderful activities. As we continue to build our cultural awareness, it also entails recognizing diversity in all aspects. Students watched a presentation on Neurodiversity and then made bracelets with colorful beads to illustrate the different ways of thinking. We ended the day with students creating (attempting to) a rainbow-to demonstrated the spectrum of neurodiverse learners.

Neurodiversity Celebration

SEL WEEK: April 11-14

In honor of celebrating the whole child, our amazing SEL Committee composed a great lineup for SEL Week. Each day represents a core theme (mindfulness, healthy nutrition, and self-care). Shout out to PTA and parents who have helped put these exciting, fun-filled activities together.

Traffic Concerns on Valley Road

Here is the link to watch Montclair Township Council meetings.

April 5: Tentative date for presentation of a resolution to create a school zone on that portion of Valley Road.

Meetings begin at 7 pm.

And, here are the instructions for remote participation:
"Those who wish to participate now during public comment should dial 425-535-9484. Participants will be put in a queue. The administrator will notify callers when it is their turn to speak by saying the last two digits of their phone numbers which will be displayed on our system. For example, a caller with the phone number 973-444-5555 will hear the administrator say "number 5-5 it is your turn to speak”. The caller will then hear the word "UNMUTE" and will be offered the opportunity to make his or her comment."
