4th Grade Fun Day Goes Virtual!

Our 4th Grade Fun Day is one of the highlights of our Bears' BGS experience. This day of fun and games is a chance for our graduating 4th graders to celebrate their time at Bradley Gardens before they move on to Eisenhower or Hillside.

While we can't hold an in-person 4th Grade Fun Day this year, we won't let our distance prevent us from celebrating! Our "Virtual" 4th Grade Fun Day will continue to be held on Friday, June 19th. Our PTO has been hard at work to design ways to celebrate our outgoing Bears. From celebratory yard signs and yearbooks to a 4th-Grade-Fun-Day-in-a-Bag and videos, our PTO helpers are putting the finishing touches on the last details.

4th Grade Parents - Be on the lookout for a message from your child's teacher next week with all of the details and some information the PTO will need from you to make this Virtual Fun Day a success.

All Families - Stay tuned for Mrs. Binford's Gardens' Greetings for more information on how the school and our district will be recognizing ALL graduates and how YOU can participate.

Donation Made to Visions & Pathways

Thanks to your generous support, we've raised over $500 in donations to support our front line personnel. Last Friday, we arranged a donation of 30 meals to Visions & Pathways, a youth shelter here in Bridgewater. The meals were provided by our friends at Mangia Buono in Raritan. Be sure to check them out the next time you're craving something yummy!

We're continuing to arrange deliveries for other community helpers. Stay tuned for more updates on our Feed the Front Line efforts.

If you'd like to contribute to our Feed the Front Line fund, you can donate here: or via AtoZ Connect (in the store, choose go to the Donations category). You choose how much you'd like to donate. Each time the pool reaches $200, we'll partner with a local establishment to feed our front line workers!
