Our students will be able to communicate effectively through verbal and written expression. Our students will be able to analyze and evaluate text in a variety of genres. Our students will possess the skills, knowledge, and conceptual understanding to effectively problem solve in science and mathematics. Our students will understand the benefits and appropriate uses of technology while encompassing the ability to adapt to variation and change. The learning environment at Bradford Elementary School will promote fair and equal opportunities for all students.
We plan to bring all students proficiency and beyond by:
Continually promoting clear high standards for all students.
Using a curriculum framework that is based on performance standards.
Maintaining an aligned curriculum both vertically and horizontally.

Black Out Bullying
For “Black out Bullying” Day (June 6), our Student Council members asked all students to help spread kind words by writing them down on small pieces of paper. These kind words are on display in our front lobby. If you happen to visit the school, please take a look. Our students came up with some great ideas! Below is just a small sample…
Give someone a smile ** Sprinkle kindness around the world ** Do the right thing, even though no one is looking ** Be a good friend ** Think before you act ** Be a leader, not a follower ** Respect others ** Don’t spread rumors ** Kind people are my “kinda” people ** Treat others the way you want to be treated ** Be kind ** Be helpful **
Bradford Students and Staff Raise $251.80 for Jimmy Fund
Celebrating “100th” Day
Museum of Science Travelling Program to Visit Bradford Elementary Students
The Museum of Science Travelling Program will be visiting the students of Bradford Elementary. Animal Habitats will visit students in grades K-2 on Friday, January 19, 2018; and Animal Adaptations will visit students in grades 3-4 on Wednesday, January 31, 2018. Thank you to the Bradford Elementary PTO and the Sughrue Family for providing the students with this wonderful opportunity.
Animal Habitats: Where is the ideal place for an animal to live? We bring up to three live animals for students to observe, and we look for clues that determine their ideal shelter and food. Based on the information collected, students are challenged to pick a suitable habitat for each animal. Students also have the opportunity to touch assorted skins, bones, and feathers so they can actually feel some of the characteristics that help these animals survive.
Animal Adaptations: Students expand their understanding of biological adaptations by observing both skulls and live animals. They see up to three live animals from different groups, place the animals in their correct classes, and learn about specific adaptations each has developed. After observing the live animals, students engage in a hands-on activity in which they become scientists and examine particular skulls to determine how the animal may have adapted.
Special Veteran Visitor
On November 9, 2017, the kindergarten students had a very special Veteran visit them to show them things she had in the Army. Our very special guest was Dinorah, Noah’s Mom!
Students recited the Pledge of Allegiance with her and sang a very special song about Veterans. Thank you for your service Dinorah!
