News from the Nest….

  • ECE had a fantastic first week of in-person learning! 
  • I’m sure that, like me, you are getting tired of hearing what extraordinary times we are living through.  But one of the things that helps, are the examples of ordinary normalcy that children bring into our lives.  Here are a few observed over the past week at Bradley…
    • 3rd grade students performing in a virtual talent show with singing, piano playing, basketball skills, karate moves and more!
    • The sound of ECE children laughing and screaming with joy outside on the playground playing with bubbles and having outdoor picnics at lunch!
  • Kindergarten & 1st Grade In Person will begin September 29thJoin your teacher for a Zoom Return to School Night for an orientation on September 23rd at 6:00pm.

School News

  • Join Mr. Wera for a Townhall on Thursday, Sept. 24th at 6:00pm. The Zoom link will be sent to you Wednesday in a special mid-week SchoolDeet/SchoolMessenger.
  • Pandemic EBT program: Pandemic EBT, or P-EBT, provides families with children eligible for free or reduced-price school meals and who attend a school participating in the National School Lunch Program with funds to help purchase food. This benefit is being distributed because students missed essential meals while schools were closed due to the pandemic this spring. Families can receive up to $279 per eligible child to supplement their food budget, regardless of immigration status. Households that were receiving SNAP during the months of March, April, and May may not need to take any action; their P-EBT benefits may have automatically been loaded onto the EBT card they already have. Families with eligible children who did not receive SNAP during those months or who did not receive the automatic payment need to apply online to receive this benefit. The deadline to apply is September 23rd. Visit coloradopeak.force.com/PEBT to learn more and apply for P-EBT.  Any questions, please contact Taylor Cohn, Council Aide, Marketing & Communications with Councilwoman Kendra Black at 720-337-4444 or contact taylor.cohn@denvergov.org
