The Columbus Suburban College Fair is coming up! It is on Sunday, October 7th at Otterbein University in the Clements Center from 1-3:30. We will not be using paper inquiry cards at the fair but students will be texting a four digit college code to an interested college from their cell phones. So, it is important that each student pre-register his/her profile before by following the steps below:
Read about Parent University. This page is crucial to keep up with college and career planning.

IT’S HOMECOMING WEEK
It’s Homecoming Week for Bradley High School. This year, we will celebrate our 10 Year Anniversary! We have many events planned for this Celebration! Throughout the week, students and teachers will be dressing to a different theme. Our Annual Jaguar Parade will be Friday before the football game (time TBD). Our Jaguar Football Team will then take on Berlin 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 – Favorite Sports Team
Wednesday – Decade Day
Thursday – Tourist Day
Friday – Jag Spirit Day
On Saturday Night, our Homecoming Dance will be from 7:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. The theme this year will be “Dancing to the Decades”. Music will be played from the 50’s to today. 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. Over the next couple of weeks, we will be communicating with students about what is appropriate dancing for this event. Thank you for your understanding!

Middle School and High School are critical times for self-discovery, developing confidence, and understanding why education is relevant to students’ future.

Join us on October 9 at 6:30pm at Weaver Middle School to learn how we are intentionally utilizing Naviance in grades 6-12 to engage students in the learning process.
