Friday Features


And we're off........

Our Read-A-Thon starts today!! Too cold to go outside? Sit down and read for a bit. Bored? Open a book and visit a new city. Read to your child, have them read on their own, it all counts. See below for more details!

Our student council's BGS Mask fundraiser is still active. Stay safe and show your school pride.

Check out AtoZ Connect to place orders. The masks will be delivered soon.

AtoZ Connect is what the PTO is using for our directory and for any financial transactions. It is easy to set up an account and you'll have access to all we have to offer. Please take a look if you haven't already. If you need instructions, please visit our website at

Thanks to all who joined us for our PTO meeting this week. Our next one Tuesday, February 9th, 7:00 pm. Stay tuned.

WhooosReading is our Read-A-Thon. It starts today, so start logging your minutes. Instructions will be sent home from your teachers. The maximum minutes that can be logged for a specific day are 120. The student who logs the most minutes and the student who raises the most money will both receive $50 worth of items through Scholastic.

*If there are several students who qualify, we will have a drawing to pick the winner.

Watch your email next week for our announcement on incentives for the children.

Our Read-A-Thon is running through February 28th.

Any questions, please contact Briana George @

Bradley Gardens Masks are Here!

The student council is running a fundraiser. They come in two sizes, adult and teen. $10 each. Check out AtoZ Connect to place your order.

We Need A Nominating Committee

We need three PTO members, if you've paid your dues - you're a member, to be part of our nominating committee. The nominating committee collects the names of people who want to run for PTO positions next year. They also receive recommendations from people and then prepare a slate for the elections. Elections are held in May.

If you have a talent for seeing the potential in people and matching them to a need, then WE NEED YOU!

Are you in the field of marketing or advertising? Maybe you can help with advertising the positions?

Many hands, make light work. If you can spare a few hours, we could use your help.


We are in need of volunteers to help run the PTO next year. Several board members have students in the 4th grade and will be leaving Bradley Gardens.

Specifically, we will need 2 PTO Presidents, 1 PTO Vice President, 2 PTO Treasurers, 1 Recording Secretary, and 1 Webmaster.

If you are interested in any of the positions, please email Briana George @

The more help we have the easier it is to run the PTO events and manage the administration of the PTO. Hopefully next year we are back to "normal", but either way, the events we have come to love and the support that we have given the school in terms of assemblies, equipment and programs need to continue. Please consider joining our team.

Many people have asked where to find a description of the roles. You can find our complete by-laws on the PTO website under forms and documents. I am also including the section that specifically address the roles below.

We are happy to answer any and all questions.

There are still Spirit Wear items available!

Check out AtoZ Connect for Spiritwear items available now!

We have some shirts and PJ pants available.

And don't forget those folders, pencils and erasers.
