Please see the message below from the Bradford PTA Membership Chair.
Hello Bradford Families,
My name is Matthew Dresnick. I am Bradford PTA’s Membership Chair and I want to welcome every new and repeating family to the 2021-22 school year! I think we can all agree last year was rocky, filled with tears, laughter, and a little alcohol (in my case, maybe a lot of all three)! We are approaching this journey together and we are fortunate to be part of a very supportive Bradford community.
Supporting one another is the best way to help our children. I send this note today to talk to you about joining the PTA. Every dollar helps our school, our teachers and enriches the school experience. Joining the PTA does not mean that you have the burden of another activity, joining can simply be an act of support. Funds raised by the PTA ultimately benefit our children, so please encourage other parents to join if you can.
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 (i.e. supplies for those cute holiday gifts we receive from the children)
- Scholarships for after school enrichment and class trips
- Family support assistance
- Fund brain pop and mystery science
- MLK Jr Day of Service
If you are able to join the PTA (click here) (or scan the QR code) this year we would really appreciate your help. Let us know how we all can come together to be better and stronger. The PTA is ALL of us.
Thank you for your time Bradford Families,
Matthew B. Dresnick
