Bradley eNews – September 23-27

IT’S HOMECOMING WEEK

It’s Homecoming Week for Bradley High School.   We have many events planned for this Celebration!  Throughout the week, students and teachers will be dressing to a different theme.   Our Bradley Leadership Retreat will be sponsoring our Annual Powder puff Game on Wednesday evening at 7 p.m.  Our Annual Jaguar Parade will be Friday before the football game at 5:30 p.m.  After the parade, the Jaguar Football Team will take on Thomas Worthington High School with the kickoff at 7 p.m.   Our Homecoming Royalty will be crowned at Halftime.

During the week, students can participate in our themes:

Monday – Pajama Day

Tuesday – VSCO Girl

Wednesday – Farmer Day

Thursday – Groutfit Day

Friday – Jersey Day

On Saturday Night, our Homecoming Dance will be from 7:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.  The theme this year will be “Disco Dance”.  Just as last year, we only permit school appropriate dancing.  All students who purchase a ticket to the Dance will receive a wristband as they enter.  If a student is dancing inappropriately, they will be given one warning and their wristband will be removed.  If the inappropriate dancing continues a 2nd time, they will be asked to leave and parents will be notified.  We want this to be a fun night for everyone.  If your child feels as though they are unable to abide by these rules, we ask that they do not attend the dance.   Thank you for your understanding!  You can PURCHASE TICKETS HERE.
