Community Service Project – Little Hats Big Hearts

Come crochet or knit with us on Monday December 10th at 10 AM, as we make little red hats for babies born in the month of February – also known as Heart Health Awareness Month. The Little Hats, Big Hearts program is a joint effort of the American Heart Association and the Children’s Heart Foundation to bring awareness to both Women’s Heart Health and Congenital Heart Defects.

It’s time for our second gathering! We will still meet again in January to get ready for delivery to the American Heart Association for distribution at local hospitals. If you are unable to attend but would still like to participate please feel free to drop off your donations (of either yarn or completed projects) to the schools front office. If you have any questions please feel free to PM me.

At the gatherings we will provide patterns as suggested by the program and have also received generous yarn donations so we have yarn for your projects. Should you want to provide your own yarn it must be either acrylic or cotton red or mostly red if you choose a variegated yarn. Please keep in mind the skin sensitivities of newborn babies as you make your yarn selections. They also ask that the hats don’t have any bows or buttons that can easily come off. Please bring your own needles, hooks, and other necessary tools.

If you have any questions about this project or how you can help please feel free to reach out to me!

A Warm Welcome from our New President!

Hello Bradley Family!

I am honored to have the privilege to serve our school as PTO President this upcoming school year!

For over 20 years I have worked in Non-profit organizations building communities, strengthening families and enabling youth to realize their full potential as caring productive citizens.

I believe the work of the PTO is vital in supporting the enrichment of our schools academic and social environment. When all stakeholders are present at the table and committed to being active and fully engaged – there is no limit to what our children can and will achieve! As parents, we are the primary stakeholders and PTO is where, we as parents, make the difference!

My goal this year is to lead a fundraising campaign that provides adequate funds for the enhancement of our schools’ learning environment in the following areas:

• Instructional Materials • Literacy Learning Libraries • Science Lab Equipment • Art Materials • PE Equipment • Provide Extensive Art & Music Experiences • Supplement Field Trip Cost • Playground canopies

In addition, PTO is working to provide Educational Scholarships for Bradley teachers to ensure that our students are recieving the latest learning techniques to help develop and prepare them for their future.

PTO will do its best to present fun activities and opportunities that will allow every parent to financially contribute to the enrichment of our school in their own special way!

Again, I am honored to serve. Please feel free to private message me on Facebook or email me at: president.bradleypto@gmail.com with any questions you may have. I would love to hear from you!

At your service,

Shawn Rouege, PTO President
