2021 Principal Welcome Letter: Principal Welcome Letter 21-22
Dear Bradley I.B. Families,
Welcome back Bradley Eagles to the 2020-2021 school year! We look forward to the first day of school on August 23rd with NEW SCHOOL HOURS! The school day will be 8:15am – 3:15pm for all full-day ECE programs through 5th grades. ECE half-day programs will be from 8:15am – 11:00am for the morning classes and 12:30pm – 3:15pm for the afternoon classes. Please see the Bradley 2021-22 School Calendar for important dates.
At Bradley, our cornerstone philosophy is the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, which focuses on integrated and rigorous units of inquiry. The Programme’s IB attitudes and attributes continue to be at the forefront, reminding us to be open-minded, patient, resilient and flexible. We continue to use the Ready curriculum for math, reading and writing, which has proven to be comprehensive and challenging. In addition to Ready, our teachers will also continue to supplement literacy with Accelerated Reader. Our teachers will be integrating social emotional teaching and learning strategies in order 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 Back to School Night (see Bradley website for more details)!
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 Deets, School Messenger emails and voicemails, and the Bradley Website. Please let our office staff know if you are not receiving the School Deets or school-based emails, as this is our primary method of regular communication. Specific classroom information will also be sent in the weekly Friday Folders.
I am excited to begin the 2021-2022 school year with our award-winning National Blue Ribbon School staff and look forward to working with our Bradley families. We are committed to being one of the top schools in Colorado and our dedication to your children’s success is unwavering. We remain optimistic and will continue to offer support to our Bradley families during this school year.
I cannot wait to see all of our Bradley Eagles! Please contact the school office at (720) 424-9468 with any questions or concerns.
Stephen Wera, Principal
