May has begun as a very busy month here at Bradford Heights. We began with a fundraiser for our Relay for Life team. BBQ lunches were purchased and prepared by Texsylvania, a business owned by Mr. and Mrs. Skelton, and was a huge success. The lunch brought in a profit of $472.00. Every Friday in May, Bradford Heights has been treated to delectable sweets made by Mrs. Allyson Patterson. Mrs. Patterson is not only an amazing baker, but also the instrumental music teacher. She has donated her time and effort to bake these amazing treats as a fundraiser for our Relay for Life team.
Bradford Heights also had two Math 24 competitions which were held at Exton Elementary and Penn Wood Elementary. The 4th and 5th Grade students had a marvelous time and demonstrated incredible math ability. We are very proud of their hard work. This club is sponsored by parents and held on Friday afternoons. We appreciate the time and effort that is put into this club by our BH parents.
Special Olympics was another major event that took place last week. Our Special Olympians were greeted with a sea of green as they exited the building to cheers and clapping by the entire student body and staff. The Bradford Heights' shirts were designed by one of our very own Olympians, Cyre Young. Every Special Olympian had their favorite memory after the event and were very excited to share their experience. As the signs in our school read....Everyone is a Winner!!! and on this day it showed through the love and support that each Olympian was given.
On Friday, Bradford Heights had their medal ceremony. After the students received their PRIDE medals, a special presentation was added to honor the Girl Scout troop that was instrumental in repairing and displaying the "old" Romig Schoolhouse bell. Mr. Reilly, the man that restored the bell, was present during the ceremony. Dr. Solon presented each of the girls and Mr. Reilly with a certificate of appreciation along with a medal. Thank you girls for making your service project something that we can all enjoy for years to come.
Wednesday, May 8th was Teacher Appreciation Day. Bradford Heights Home and School always does an amazing job and this year was no different. The theme for this year was the Wizard of Oz. The day began with a breakfast and a smile from parents and students alike. At lunch time, the teachers and staff were treated to an amazing luncheon. Every staff member found themselves somewhere under the rainbow as they traveled down the yellow brick road to a delicious lunch, followed by a multitude of desserts. The teachers and staff at Bradford Heights cannot put into words how much this day is appreciated. The time and effort it took to coordinate and decorate for this day does not go unnoticed. We would like to thank all of the parents that helped to make this day memorable.
