Bradley Wonders Newsletter

May 16th-19th


This will be the last newsletter of the year! I have to say as this will be my last year in the classroom, I am so thankful I had the privilege of teaching your child. Thank you for this opportunity as well as your support throughout the year. We have had a great year and will cherish the memories we've made along the way.

From the Nurses' Corner

End of year Reminders:

All medications in the nurses’ office will be returned on the last day of school. If you know that your child’s last day will be sooner, please notify the nurse so your medications can be sent home earlier.

All prescriptions and/or over-the-countermedications need new orders at the beginning of each year.

A 5th grade physical is recommended, all 4th graders should have received a form before spring break. The forms are also on line or the form from the pediatrician’s office is fine, too.

Health/Emergency Contact forms need to be filled out every year with updated phone numbers and medical concerns. Please remember to check the Tylenol/ Ibuprofen permission box at the bottom of the form.

Thanks and have a fun and safe summer.
