2022-23 Welcome Letter

Posted 08/01/2022

Dear Bradley I.B. Families,

Welcome back Bradley Eagles to the 2022-2023 school year! We look forward to the first day of school on August 22nd! The school day will be 8:15am – 3:15pm for all full-day ECE programs through 5th grade. ECE half-day programs will be from 8:15am – 11:00am for the morning classes and from 12:30pm – 3:15pm for the afternoon classes. 

At Bradley, we follow the philosophy of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, which focuses on integrated and rigorous units of inquiry. The IB Learner Profile continues to be at the forefront of our daily programming, reminding us to be open-minded, empathetic and principled. This year, our primary grades will use the CKLA curriculum for literacy. We are excited to use this new curriculum as we piloted it last year in several of our classrooms. We continue to use the Ready curriculum for math in all grades, and in the intermediate grades for reading. Our 3rd – 5th grades will use a new writing program that they started last year, Top Score Writing. These curricula have proven to be comprehensive and challenging. In addition, our teachers will also continue to supplement literacy with the Accelerated Reader program. We will continue to integrate social emotional teaching and learning strategies using the IB Learner Profile to continue to build positive classroom communities and ensure the health and well-being of every student. You will receive more classroom specific information during your Back to School Night. Please check the Back to School News on the Bradley website for more details on your specific night(s) and other upcoming events.

Providing our students with high-quality instruction in an engaging learning environment remains our top priority. School information will be communicated through web-based applications such as School Messenger emails, School Deets, voicemails and on the Bradley Website.

Please let our office staff know if you are not receiving the School Messenger emails or School Deets, as these are our primary methods of regular communication. Specific classroom information will also be sent by your teacher and in the weekly Friday Folders.

We are excited to begin the 2022-2023 school year with our award-winning IB staff! We  look forward to another great year connecting with our Bradley families. We cannot wait to see all of our Bradley Eagles!

Please contact the school office at (720) 424-9468 with any questions or concerns. Our summer office hours are 8:00am – 2:00pm until August 12th, then will move to our regular school hours,  7:30am – 4:30pm, starting August 15th.

Sincerely,     

Stephen Wera, Principal
