Halloween is always an exciting time at Bradford Heights. Everyone was able to dress up in constume as the Bulldog wandered through the crowd. The parade was let by a scarecrow and Raggedy Anne. After the parade every classroom had a party, where the students were able to play games and make crafts. Every student was excited to then go home and trick or treat that evening. We are all thankful we had a beautiful day and were able to do the parade outside on the walking trail.
Bradford Heights had a wonderful musical assembly on Brazilian Music with the group Minas. Minas performed several famous examples of Brazilain music and presented historic and educational references to expose students to the culture of Brazil. They used Authentic Brazilian percussion instruments such as the surdo, tamborim, repinique, agogo, reco-reco, ganza, pandeiro, and cuica. The students were able to participate in singing scat and playing Brazilian percussion. The Minas group was amazing and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.
Four generous 5th graders delivered items they collected to the grateful men and women of the Chester County SPCA. Jessica Hobart, Julia Murray, Maddie Boone, and Hannah Schmidt worked very hard at collecting items that are in short supply. With caring students such as Jessica, Julie, Maddy and Hannah the SPCA now has supplies that they need. Thank you for being so thoughtful.
