Bradley eNews – January 21-25

WINTER PLAY IS THIS WEEKEND

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge.

In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all. – Samuel French

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PTO

Do you have leadership skills? Want to support the efforts of Bradley’s PTO in a meaningful way? Consider joining the PTO Executive Committee in the 2020-2021 school year.  We need people to help lead the organization, coordinate meals for teacher conferences, help with fund raising, coordinate the quarterly cookie day for students, and assist with our annual senior scholarship process. Without strong leaders and parents willing to volunteer their time and talents, the PTO cannot function or provide funding and support for our students and teachers. You can learn more about what’s involved in being a leader in the PTO and other ways you can help by attending one of our upcoming monthly meetings. Our next meeting is Tuesday, February 4, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. in the Media Center at Bradley. Hope to see you there!

Our next Spirit Night is Tuesday, February 11, 2020 at McAlister’s Deli (in front of Meijer near Starbucks)  5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. with flyer. Grab a bite to eat and support the PTO at the same time!

Do you shop at Kroger? Register your Kroger Plus card and a percentage of your purchases will be donated to the PTO. Click here to learn more.

Support the Bradley PTO through our PayPal Giving Fund. Donations are tax deductible and 100% of proceeds support our students and teachers.

Listening Leaders

Several times a year Superintendent John Marschhausen schedules time to have coffee with our community. These are informal times to grab a cup of coffee and chat with the superintendent.  Mr. Mark Abate, President of the Board of Education, will be joining Dr. Marschhausen this time around. The two will be hosting Listening Leaders at various locations in Hilliard.  The two are committed to listening to you, our community.  As we gather information and listen to understand, we can better plan for future goals and programs.  Please make plans to join us at one of these for a casual conversation.

January 30 from 8-9:30 at Panera Mill Run

January 31 from 10-11 at the Hilliard Library

Transportation Alerts

Over the next few weeks we will begin using our School Messenger tool to notify families about transportation delays and issues.  It is imperative that we have your correct information in home access so you can receive texts and emails in a timely manner.  You can also download the School Messenger app to control how you receive these messages, whether by phone, text or email.

This is the same system we currently use for district and school newsletters, attendance and emergency weather notifications.
