PTO News

  • Bradley First Dines Out – Thursday, September 16th, Chick-fil-A @ University Hills location from 4:00-7:00pm. We are excited for our first Dines Out of the year!! Don’t forget to tell your teammates, neighbors and family members! We hope you can take a night off cooking and enjoy some Chick-fil-A! What is a Dine Out?? The PTO coordinates a dining night at a community restaurant for our school. When the evening is over, the restaurant donates a percentage of the sales back to the PTO! The PTO uses that money for classrooms and teacher needs. It’s an easy way to raise money for Bradley PTO!
  • Spiritwear Update: An online store for Spiritwear is COMING SOON!! Instead of in-person sales we will be offering an online store that will have more options and all sizes. Once the online store is open, you will have two weeks to place orders. All items will be shipped to Bradley and we will have an item pick-up after school.
  • FUN RUN is back! The Bradley PTO is excited to host this year’s Fun Run on Friday, October 1, 2021. The Fun Run is for any and all students to participate! Students get an exciting day to spend with their grade, the satisfaction of running as many laps as they can in 20 minutes (during their Specials time), and free snacks and prizes! The Fun Run is a pledge-based fundraiser for the PTO – start telling family, friends, neighbors, anyone about the Fun Run and ask for pledges (either set dollar amounts or a dollar amount for each lap your student runs). Pledge envelopes with more details will be going home next Friday, Sept. 17! And mark your calendars – the Fun Run Pep Rally for students will be held Friday, Sept. 24.
  • Fun Run – Volunteers Needed The PTO is looking for volunteers to help with the Fun Run on October 1 – whether you can help for 45 minutes or the entire day, we want your help! Please complete the volunteer interest form and you will be contacted: https://forms.gle/NKKFKDVCLrExWgZd7.
