Good Afternoon Jaguar Families,
Homecoming is here! Tonight’s homecoming game against Hilliard Davidson High School starts at 7:00 p.m. The homecoming dance is tomorrow, September 30th, from 7:30 to 10:00 p.m. on the football field. Students, please remember to download your ticket and bring a picture ID.
I ask all of you to please talk to your sons/daughters about drinking and drugs. Many students may be asked to attend parties before and after the dance. If your child is attending a party, please make sure there will be parent supervision and that there are no drugs or alcohol. A simple phone call can save a life. We want all of our students to have a great weekend, and it’s critical that everyone remains safe.
Parent teacher conferences are on October 18th. Please go to the Hilliard Bradleyhomepage and click the sign-up link that will go live next Wednesday, October 3rd. To schedule a conference, please click on a teacher’s name. We ask that you sign up for only one time slot per teacher. Directions for signup are available on the sign-up page if needed. If you have any questions do not hesitate to call the main office at 614-921-7400.
Have a great weekend and GO JAGS!!!

Military Scholarship Raffle
The Hilliard Purple Star will be holding a raffle to win authentice theater-style seats from The Ohio State Stadium. (Removed from Suite Level, summer of 2022). Drawing will be held on January 26th at Bradley vs Davidson basketball game.
All proceeds will fund annual scholarship for students of active military and veteran families at each of the Purple Star Hilliard High School.
Tickets can be purchased tonight at the football game or go to Bradley Announcements next week and scan the QR code.
Picture Retake / Absent
If your student was absent on picture day or would like a retake of their original day picture, HR Imaging will be at Bradley on Tuesday, October 10th. If your student received a picture package and would like a retake, please have them bring their picture package on this day to give to the photographer.
On October 24, each high school will operate on an adjusted schedule for the administration of the PSAT 10 to all sophomores and the administration of the PSAT/NMSQT to those juniors who have registered to take it. Both tests will be digital this school year.
The PSAT 10 measures readiness for college and prepares our sophomores to take the SAT during their junior year. It also connects students with scholarship opportunities and shares Advanced Placement (AP) potential.
For participating juniors, the PSAT/NMSQT also prepares students for the SAT, but is different in that it is a National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test for the National Merit Scholarship Competition.
There is additional information for families on the College Board website:www.collegeboard.org.

The Technology Protection Plan (TPP) is still available for purchase. However, the iPad must now be inspected for damage before payment can be accepted. You may send payment, via check or cash, with your student and have them stop in the main office or the media center to begin this process.
