Friday Features


Happy Friday!!

It's starting to feel like Spring!

Take a break from cooking and order some pizza from Chimney Rock Inn and support the PTO. Orders need to be in by this Sunday!

If you've made a pledge to our Read-A-Thon and chose to send in a check, you can do so now. Just address the envelope to Read-A-Thon with your child's name and class.

Big picture

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. You can also contact Kim Yacykewych @ to place an order or ask questions.

The teen size is great for our school-aged children and those with thinner faces.

PTO Positions - Co-Vice President

This week we are highlighting our Co-Vice President position.

This position has several responsibilites. They include:

  1. Perform duties of President/Co-President in their absence.
  2. Coordinate and install the class parents.
  3. Coordinate and administer the teacher grants program.

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.
