ROBOTICS TEAM CHAMPS!

Tuesday, the Bradley Robotics team competed in the first NEISD VEX Robotics competition. They built a driver controlled robot that was used to compete in four rounds of challenges following the VEX Challenge guidelines. After all four rounds were completed, we ended the night as division champions! Bringing home another robotics trophy to Bradley!! The boys showed an excellent display of teamwork and perseverance to get the job done. Please congratulate Jason Cardenas, Jasiah Ortega, Owen Tveten, and Declan Guckian on a great robotics season!

Thank You, Mrs. Pirtle.

Former Bradley student thanks teacher for always being there!

Former Bradley Middle School student, Adolfo Diaz works for Facebook.

Before that, he worked at Amazon.

But years before working for some of the biggest companies in the U.S., he was a sixth-grade geography student in Liz Pirtle’s geography class at Bradley Middle School.

He recently sent her a video message thanking her for always being in his corner and cheering him on in and out of the classroom.

“I moved to San Antonio when I was about 9-years-old, and I didn’t know any English. Going to school was fairly intimidating; however, walking into Mrs. Pirtle’s classroom was completely different. There was something magical about it. You felt cared for. You knew that you were going to have a lot of fun and that you were going to learn, but most importantly, you could feel that Mrs. Pirtle believed in us, students. It’s been 15 years since I stepped foot in that classroom and for those past 15 years, when I looked over to my small cheering section, Mrs. Pirtle was always there telling me she believed in me. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the effort and love you put into your work. Love you and keep doing what you do.”

Big or small, everyone has a story to tell.

Bradley and Madison Boy Scout Troop 511, gift Bradley with new US & Texas Flags!

Bradley 8th Graders, Cole Buchanan, Sutton Cantrell, Brett MacKay, Max Vincent and Moses Greer (Madison 11th) from Boy Scout Troop 511, gifted Bradley with new United States and Texas flags on Friday, April 30. The presentation was a beautiful and honorable.

We are grateful for their gift and are very proud of these young men and their dedication and accomplishments within their TROOP.

Proper retirement of our National and state flags! Wonderful to witness.

Parents, please look at your child's grades in SKYWARD and encourage them to seek their teacher's help if they are not doing well. We have a few short weeks left and are here to support. Summer programs are being developed for students who need to retake courses. I would love to say, NO BRADLEY BEAR will enroll in our summer programs:)

NEISD ~ FREE MEALS FOR 2022 School Year!

GREAT NEWS!All North East ISD campuses will continue to serve free meals to all students in the 2021-22 school year.

NO CLEAR BACKPACKS NEXT YEAR!

Great news! During the 2021–2022 school year, North East ISD will no longer require clear backpacks for students at our middle and high school campuses. However, our clear bag policy for events will remain the same.

REMAINING STAAR TEST DATES

Please consider sending your child (virtual) to Bradley to take their appropriate STAAR exams. This data will be invaluable to your child and to our teachers as we look to strengthen areas of learning loss next year!


A survey link was sent out in an earlier blast this week for you to let us know if your child will be on campus for testing. We need to ensure a safe testing environment for every student.
