AAPI Lunar Celebration
What an incredible event, and our students did a lovely job with their performance! Thank you, Ms. Yeh for giving students a great chance to show off their Mandarin language skills.

CPR Training for the Entire Staff
On Thursday, Bradford staff were trained in CPR for infants, children and adults. Although the very thought of someone needing to be resuscitated is frightening, knowing what to do is empowering. We all felt prepared for emergency situations and relieved to know these lifesaving skills. Shout out to Ms. Allison Quinn and Ms. Kelly Ringston for coordinating this event and to our PTA for their support.

After School Enrichment 
ASE registration is currently open. Several classes are already sold out. There are a few classes that still have slots available: Bradford Steppers, Intro to Crochet, Woodcrafting, Trash Reimagined and Hip Hop Dance. Please visit the Bradford PTA website for additional information and to register.

Bedtime and Books!
Kindergarten and first grade families are invited to this special event on Monday, January 30th @ 6:30 p.m. Kids should plan to come in their pajamas and we will read books and have a little fun. This is always a wildly popular event for families, so please reserve a spot. Adults will also have a chance to mingle and see your child's classroom.

5th Grade Parents
Please send the nurse your child's updated immunization record that is required for 6th grade once it is completed. The Tdap (Diphtheria, Pertusis & Tenanus) and Menigococcal vaccines should both be updated at this time.

Bradford Reader Winter 2023 Edition is out!

Traffic Concerns
I have been working on many different projects with the staff and families to help improve Bradford, and we have had great success due to our collaborative efforts. I am calling on the Bradford community to help with this particular endeavor to help keep our community safe. We can all attest to the dangers of parking on College Avenue and driving down it during dismissal. I am working on making College Avenue a one-way street during dismissal for ten minutes. It would mimic the morning arrival routine on that avenue. I have reached out to the Montclair Traffic Department for assistance but need some help maintaining communication, coordination and follow-up. We are gravely concerned with everyone's safety and security. If anyone is interesting in assisting, please contact me.
