SPRING BOOK FAIR IS COMING!!

posted Apr 17, 2018, 5:32 PM by Bradley Hills Elementary School PTA

On Monday, April 30 – Thursday, May 3rd, BHES will host our Spring Scholastic Book Fair. This event energizes kids' love of reading, and raises money for BHES -- including stocking the Media Center and the classroom libraries with new books that kids want to read.

TheBook Fair will be open: 
  • April 30: 8:30am – 4:00pm
  • May 1: 8:30am – 4:00pm 
  • May 2: 8:00am – 4:00pm (Pastries for PETS breakfast event 8:00am-8:45am. Come join us for pastries and coffee! **Animals are not allowed at this event just Parents Eating Tasty Snacks!) 
  • May 3: 8:30am – 4:00pm and 6:30-8:30pm (during the Art Show) 

Your family can participate in the Book Fair in several ways: 
  1. Students will visit the Book Fair with their classes, and they can bring money to purchase books if they would like. 
  2. Students can fill out a Wish List at the book fair, and then shop with you on the online Book Fair site. Our online Fair will be available from April 2–May 3. 
  3. Get "Caught Reading!" Students who are "caught reading" during the Book Fair week may receive a raffle ticket. We will pick winners from the raffle daily, to receive a free book! 
  4. Bring a new or “like new” books to donate to Weller Road Elementary School. Students who donate a book will receive a raffle ticket for the Book Fair Prize! 
  5. Buy a book for your teacher’s classroom! Teachers will make “Wish Lists” of books that would be fun for their students. 
  6. Parents can volunteer at the Book Fair to join the fun! Please continue to check the sign up genius as we will add the classroom visit times for each teacher to make it easier to volunteer when your child(ren) will be at the fair.

Most importantly, the Book Fair is meant to excite kids about reading. If you buy books, remember that all purchases benefit our school! (It's also a great chance to purchase staff appreciation gifts, holiday and/or birthday party gifts, etc.)

For those of you new to BHES this year, Field Day is an entire day of fun, sports & activities held right at school, almost entirely outdoors. We try to have the kids wear colors according to their grade:

K - Purple
1st - Red
2nd - Orange
3rd - Kelly Green
4th - Yellow
5th - Royal Blue

There are kid sizes, adult sizes, cotton Ts, dry fit and sport shorts all for a very reasonable price. Of course you are not obliged to buy the current Field Day gear but we do encourage everyone to wear their grade's color that day so we can keep tabs on the group better.

Looking forward to a day of fun & sport outside!

There are about 70 days of school left this school year! If each parent volunteered at lunch or recess for just ONE hour this year, all of the shifts would be covered. So tell your boss you have an appointment or take a long lunch hour and come hang out with your child (and a few hundred others) one afternoon! The link to the sign up and all the details are below.

DO YOU WORK FOR AN EMPLOYER WITH A DONATION MATCHING PROGRAM?

posted Oct 30, 2017, 8:02 AM by Bradley Hills Elementary School PTA   [ updated Mar 8, 2018, 5:35 AM ]

If so, consider throwing a big funding punch the way of the PTA!!!

Yes, it is another thing to "add to the to do list" -- but it's one of those asks that just makes sense. You donate, your company donates, and teachers and students win big. We know this because the PTA has benefited from corporate matches in years past and it has been a tremendous asset.

Not sure if your company has a matching program? Ask!

And we've even done some homework. If you work for (drum roll) -- these companies, our research indicates that you have access to a great program:

General Electric
Soros Fund Management
BP (British Petroleum)
Gap Corporation
State Street Corporation
ExxonMobil
CarMax
Johnson & Johnson
Boeing
Microsoft
Apple
Chevron
Disney
Google
The Home Depot
JP Morgan
Merck
Starbucks
State Farm
Verizon

Boom! Send an email, make a call to HR, and send some corporate matching funds to the BHES PTA. It will make a difference and the funding directly impacts your kids. Win. Win.
