PTO  Happenings

  • Bradley PTO’s Backpack Program: Backpack Program is a PTO program that provides a food bag to Bradley families that are in need of food for the weekend. The Backpack Program will provide a bag of nutritious food for our families that request it during remote learning and throughout the school year. Families can now fill out a form online Bradley Backpack Sign Up and bags will be available for pickup on Fridays starting in mid-September. If you have questions please contact your student’s teacher or Susan Scovell and Marta Burns at suswas128@gmail.com. If you would like to volunteer, please let Susan know too! We need volunteers to help pack the bags, pick up Food Bank items, and organize each week. Thank you!
  • Welcome Back, Bradley Parents!  PTO started the school year supporting our students and teachers by purchasing 500 white boards and dry erase markers for grades K-5; funding a 2020 Virtual Learning Grant that distributed $100 to all teachers to assist with purchasing of online curriculum and learning materials; and closing out 4 Donor’s Choose projects. We also gave all teachers/staff a fun back-to-school gift.  While we anticipate some differences in how we raise money this year, a consistent source of fundraising will be from our community rewards programs. Each company gives money to Bradley based on your purchase(s) and at no additional cost to you! Signing up is easy and fast, simply take one minute and follow these steps:
