Another Spot Still Available for Book Fair Chair

Our Book Fair Co-Chairs are "graduating" with our 4th graders, so we're in need of some intrepid underclass parents to help co-chair this June's Book Fair to learn the ropes. Interested individuals will be coached by the outgoing Book Fair team in order to learn the process and chair future Book Fairs. The ideal candidate should be available during the school day to help staff and oversee the Book Fair. If you're interested in learning more and getting more involved with the school, please reach out to Lauren Ravi at or the PTO Presidents at

Turn Markers into Energy

BGS is participating in an exciting new program in conjunction with Crayola. It’s called Crayola ColorCycle – an amazing program devised to repurpose used markers rather than sending them to landfills!

The ColorCycle program has repurposed more than 70 tons of expended markers in the United States and Canada since 2013, and uses the most advanced plastic conversion technologies available today to make wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles as well as to generate electricity that can be used to heat homes, cook food, and power vehicles.

All around Bradley Gardens School, students and teachers will be collecting used markers that are ready to be discarded. Please help support our efforts by sending your kids in with any used markers you may have around the house- even non-Crayola brands! Highlighters and dry erase markers can also be included. Drop-off boxes will be located in the hallway (by the box top collection box) for your child to deposit the markers. DO NOT SEND IN ANY CRAYONS.

Thank you in advance for participating! With the help of parents like you across the country, the Crayola ColorCycle program can continue to keep tons of plastic out of landfills each year.

Remember, don’t throw out that used marker—ColorCycle it!

For any questions, please contact Mina Patel, PTO Color Cycle Chairperson, at

Friday, May 17 - Registration Required
