Bradley eNews – September 24, 2021
Good Afternoon Jaguar Families,
Starting Monday, September 27th, we have a host of activities planned for Spirit Week and Homecoming. We encourage all of our students to participate in these events as we get ready for Friday’s outdoor pep rally and the football game against Hilliard Davidson.
The annual Bradley Homecoming Parade is Friday, October 1st at 6:00PM. The parade route is different than in the past, so please pay attention to the parade route signs that will be posted around the parking lot. Immediately following the parade is the Davidson football game. More information can be found on Bradley’s website.
Homecoming week will culminate with our Homecoming dance, “Light Up The Night”, that will be held on the football field from 7pm to 10pm on Saturday night.
We will hold virtual parent teacher conferences on October 13th. The live link for signup will be available on our website on the afternoon of Wednesday, September 29th. Please do not hesitate to contact me or your students’ teacher if you have immediate questions or concerns.
