Please see the message below from the Bradford PTA Membership Chair.
Hello Bradford Families,
My name is Vanessa Baumann. I am Bradford PTA’s Membership Chair and I want to welcome every new and repeating family to this very unprecedented 2020-21 school year. We are approaching this journey together and what I do know about the upcoming year is that we are fortunate to be part of our very supportive, kind and out of the box thinking Bradford community. Supporting one another is the best way to help our children get through these unchartered territories.
I introduce myself to you today to explain what joining the PTA means and why it is important to the school. I also respectfully acknowledge that this year of ALL years is a very difficult time to ask for donations for our school. Please know that reaching out to you and encouraging you to join our PTA is fueled by a love of our school and what we are trying to provide for our school…especially this year.
The PTA supports Bradford in many ways and your membership is part of that. A portion of your membership fee goes toward the NJPTA. The rest goes to Bradford. We help provide:
- Teacher grants for classrooms
- Scholarships for after school enrichment and class trips
- Family support assistance
- Fund brain pop and mystery science
- MLK Jr Day of Service
We also normally host book fairs, pancake breakfast, BradFest and ice cream socials… We are working hard to bring events to the community in a “new” way this year. Stay tuned!
If you are able to join the PTA (click here) this year we would really appreciate your help. If you are not able to join the PTA this year, we still need your input, advice and guidance. Let us know how we all can come together to be better and stronger. The PTA is ALL of us. And if you do join before September 30th you will be entered in a raffle to win Bradford swag!!
Thank you for your time Bradford Families,
Bradford PTA Membership Chair, firstname.lastname@example.org
