Bradley eNews – August 26, 2022

Good Afternoon Jaguar Families,

The first full week of school is complete and our students did an outstanding job. We are excited to continue the positive momentum that has gotten this school year off to a great start.

Congratulations to all of our after school programs that are officially in full swing. It has been great to see our students back in the building participating in clubs, theater, band and athletics again.

On Wednesday, September 14, we will be holding an open house here at Bradley high school.  From 5:30pm-6:00pm we will hold a senior parent only meeting hosted by our college coordinator Mr. Tom Woodford and Assistant Principal Mr. Cort Hamilton in the PAC to talk about the college admissions process and senior dates. Beginning at 6:00pm we will hold a traditional open house where parents will have an opportunity to walk your students’ schedules and meet their teachers from 6:00pm-7:30pm. In the upcoming weeks you will receive more information with a detailed schedule.

Have a great weekend and Go Jags!

Hello Bradley family!  Welcome back to the new school year.  Please consider helping with Bradley PTO this year.  We are holding meetings on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 5pm in the Bradley media center.  We would love to see some new faces!

If you cannot make the meetings, you can still help by signing up for Kroger rewards.  See the PTO webpage under the parent tab on the Bradley school website for directions in how to sign up.  The webpage will have new info as well as other ways to support PTO this year.

We are working on getting another spirit wear online sale up and running soon.  PTO will be at the first home football game this Friday selling the t-shirts we have in stock and answering any questions you may have.

Make sure to follow us on Twitter (@HBHS_PTO), Instagram (hbhs_pto), and Facebook (Hilliard Bradley High School PTO).

PTO looks forward to working with you this year!

AWS Global Leaders Visit Hilliard Schools

Leaders from the Amazon Web Services Inclusion and Outreach Global Team spent the day in Hilliard Schools at the Innovation Campus learning from our students and staff.  They heard how the support from AWS impacts our students in all grades, from kindergarten to seniors, ever day on their journey to be Ready for Tomorrow.  You can read more about this partnership on our webpage.

  

Parent Help with Canvas

Canvas is the online Learning Management System we use in Hilliard Schools. Your child’s teacher(s) may use Canvas in a variety of ways.  Some examples are: to provide access to important resources, to create online discussions where students can post and reply, and to receive, evaluate, and/or provide feedback on work your child submits digitally.  As a parent, you are already enrolled as a Parent Observer in all of your child’s active Canvas courses.  To login to Canvas as a parent observer go to www.hilliard.instructure.com or click on the link to Canvas from our HCSD Parent page.

Your parent observer username and password match your username and password for Home Access Center.  HCSD has already linked your Home Access username and password to your Canvas Parent Observer account. We have also built a Canvas course for parents to learn how to use this great instructional tool.
