Bradley eNews – October 8, 2021

Good Afternoon Jaguar Families,

A we head into fall and the final week of the first quarter, I would like to emphasize the importance of staying focused on academics. Please take time to talk with your child to ensure that all assignments, assessments, projects, etc. are complete prior to the end of the quarter, Thursday, October 14th. Remember that you can look up your child’s progress using Home Access at any time, so you never have to be in the dark about your child’s academic status.

Congratulations to our own Aidan Hennes & Jaelyn Hopson, who are two of 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation who are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Commended Students in the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program placed among the top 50,000 students who entered the 2022 competition by taking the PSAT/NMSQT test in 2020. Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success! Congratulations!

This weekend, Hilliard Bradley Theater presents Steel Magnolias! Please come support our program and the wonderful students who have worked so hard on this production. Steel Magnolias tells the story of six Southern women from northwest Louisiana who meet up frequently at Truvy’s beauty salon. Together, they bond over shared experiences and support each other through their greatest triumphs and darkest moments. The name Steel Magnolias perfectly reflects the six female characters in this Robert Harling classic: beautiful and delicate like a magnolia, but tough as steel. Steel Magnolias runs from October 8th through October 10th. Performances on Friday and Saturday are at 7pm, and Sunday’s performance is at 2pm. Tickets can be purchased through Local Level. The link is on our website at www.bradleytheater.com
