Dear Bradford Community,
The holidays are approaching quickly. Each year around this time, the Bradford community runs a 'Holiday Gift Program' to support families in need during the holiday season. The assistance provided will be in the form of gifts for students (toys OR clothing). These holiday gifts are sponsored by Bradford's PTA, teachers & staff. There's a PTA 'SIGN-UP GENIUS' link below, with the requested holiday items. Once the gifts are donated, they will be wrapped at our annual community 'WRAP & ROLL' event that is sponsored by the MEA.

Wrap and Roll flier
The gifts will be wrapped at the 'WRAP & ROLL' event on Thursday, December 14, 2023.

LIBRARY - 3:30pm - 5:00pm
Thank you!

Parent and Teacher Conferences

Conferences are a great time to be able to have a one to one conversation about your student's progress - their successes and their struggles. School is a different experience for every student as they each have a unique way of handling the academic and social demands.

Want to go beyond the grade on the report card during conferences?

Many of our students present very differently in the classroom compared to at home. Here are a few questions to support the discussion of your child as a learner at school -

What are they most proud of? / What subject keeps them most engaged?
Does my child ask questions?
What happens when they get frustrated? How do they get unstuck?
How is their stamina for reading or writing or sticking with problems that require deeper thought/multiple steps?
Who do they typically work with? Do they prefer to work alone? Where in the room do they prefer to work?
I could use resources to better support (insert topic/subject)

Also, please keep in mind that parents and caregivers do not have to wait until parent teacher conferences to meet with teachers. Just send an email requesting a meeting to discuss your child’s needs.

Don’t forget!
