2024 – 2025 School year:  We are doing a lot of tours for prospective families, and have many on the schedule over the next few weeks. Since space is limited in several classes across all grade levels, we wanted to get a couple of things on your radar regarding the 2024-2025 school year.

  • Applications for the 2024-2025 school year have opened!  Who needs to fill out an application?  
    • Parents who have a child who is NOT currently enrolled at Bradford but they would like to enroll for 2024-2025 (i.e. 4 year olds starting TK).
    • If you have friends and family who are interested in enrolling a child next year, please let them know the applications have opened!  
    • (Please DO NOT fill out an application for children who are currently enrolled.)
  • Enrollment for 2024 – 2025 school year:  
    • For students who are currently enrolled and will be continuing their education with us next year, there is nothing further that needs to be done at this time.
    • Students who are currently enrolled who will not be continuing with us next year, parents must submit a withdrawal notice in writing to the office no later than February 15th.  (Withdrawals after February 15th will incur an opt-out fee.)
  • Mebane on the Move Reindeer 5k:  TEAM BRADFORD – Saturday, 12/16  If you’re interested in running the 5k race downtown Mebane, we invite you to join “Team Bradford” and wear your Bradford gear! When you register, you can simply choose our team from the dropdown menu at the end of the registration.  This should be fun!
  • FROM MRS. MITCHELL:  Chores.  Does that word conjure up a negative or a positive experience in your mind?  A brief conversation with a 2nd grader encouraged me this week.  She needed to throw something away, but the trash had been emptied and needed a new bag.  She assured me that she could solve that problem because her chore this week is serving the class as the trash helper.  Our teachers are to be commended for their diligence to teach not only subject matter, but classroom chores that contribute to personal responsibility and a loving classroom environment.  Well-crafted instruction shapes the heart.  Proverbs 23:12 “Apply your heart to instruction, and your ears to words of knowledge.”
  • K – 4th grade parents:  We are enjoying the advent season and planning is underway for our final 1/2 day of the quarter.  We traditionally enjoy several activities together as a school, which includes a special snack and story with Mr. Johnston.  If you are able to contribute snacks or volunteer to serve, please click this link to sign up.

Transitional Kindergarten (Mrs. Grubb and Mrs. Weber)

This Week
  • The TK students were excited to return to school this week after their break. We jumped right into reading of Jesus’s birth and began practicing for our nativity performance happening in a few weeks. The students have already worked so hard on learning songs and are excited to present it to you in a few weeks. Our focus this week was on the birth of Jesus. Next week we will focus on the shepherds. In math this week we practiced writing numbers 5-7 and introduced clocks learning to tell time to the hour on a digital and analog clock. Our letter of the week was C. We practiced writing C and talked about its sound. Next week our letter will be O. In centers this week we introduced word families, reviewed math concepts, completed a journal entry about our Thanksgiving break, and learned the life cycle of a Christmas tree. 


Lower School P.E. (Mrs. Bennington)

K – 4th
  • Students did a great job in P.E. this week. Students got a chance to complete various team building activities, play several rounds of Bingo, and some classes even learned a couple of line dances. 

Lower School Music (Mrs. Bennington)

  • Students worked on our hymn for the quarter, “O Come All Ye Faithful”. Students learned part of the harmony line for this piece as well.  We also worked on several other Christmas Carols in preparation for Christmas. Students did a great job. 
  • Fourth grade students worked on identifying pitches on the staff. They also worked on identifying notes that stay the same, that are a  step apart, and that skip. We ended classes by playing several songs on the recorder. 

Lower School Art (Mrs. Palmer)

  • Students finished drawing their self-portraits this week.  We also inked in our portraits and will soon be painting them.  We did these self portraits in an effort to mimic our artist of the quarter, Rembrandt. 
  • Students began sketching a mixed media seasonal drawing.  We will be sketching, inking and painting these surprise drawings that will be sent home around the end of the quarter. 

Kindergarten (Mrs. Rivera and Miss Burdeshaw)

This Week: 
  • Our kindergartners had a great week back at school from Thanksgiving break! In math, we learned how to identify even and odd numbers, how to number a clock face, how to show time to the hour on a clock, and we practiced adding two to an even number. In phonics, we started our new reader “To The Rim of The Map,” and we added on the phonograms, “ow” and “ou.” In history, we reviewed our timeline of historical events and our history fact song. In art, we discussed the artist Rebrandt and in science, we had a visit from a local dental hygienist, who explained the importance of taking care of our teeth. 
Memory Work: 
  • 1 Corinthians 10:13 and review

1st Grade (Mrs. Morgan & Mrs. Smith)

This Week: 
  • The students have come back from Thanksgiving break ready for 3 full weeks of learning and showing what they know! We are also enjoying this special season of celebrating the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus. The lights on our class trees remind us of The Light of Life that came into the world over 2,000 years ago. Take a moment to read John 1:1-14. In math the students are writing dates using digits, creating and reading a bar graph, creating and reading a venn diagram, and ordering two-digit numbers. They are also learning more complicated time and money skills. In history, we are beginning on our journey of learning about the courage, hard work, and faith of the pilgrims. Reading has the students learning about how God will clean the blackest of hearts when someone turns to Him. The students have done a great job in putting their sentence writing knowledge to use while practicing their spelling words. We’ve been practicing the use of pronouns in grammar. In art, the students had the opportunity to color a picture similar to one of Rembrant’s paintings. There has never been a cuter group of zoologists than the ones in first grade science learning all about the classifications of animals.
Memory Work:  
  • Psalm 1:1-2/ Catechism Questions 14 &15
  • Christmas Celebration, half day, end of the quarter, and start of Christmas break is December 21st


2nd Grade (Mrs. Hedgecock & Mrs. Eng)

This Week: 
  • After a few days off it was nice to see the students again and see their enthusiasm for learning.  Our Bible memorization has continued in Hebrews 11.  From time to time have your students recite verses 1 through 22.  They are up to the challenge!  Math has become more complicated as we start learning how to multiply sevens.  We can sing the 7-14-21 jingle but are now learning to remember what each of the numbers represents. Please put a little extra time into memorizing the x 7s this week.   You can also help your students by pointing out equal groups as you come across them in your daily life.  The students have ventured into writing a two-point expository paragraph with great success.  We started a new chapter book: Patricia MacLachlan’s Newberry Medal winning book Sarah, Plain and Tall.  In history it has been fun to be Egyptologists and decipher hieroglyphics and learn the importance of the Middle Kingdom in Egypt in leaving records for future generations to learn about their culture.  
Memory Work: 
  • Hebrews 11 up to verse 22


3rd Grade (Mrs. McDorman and Mrs. Meredith)

This Week
  • Your students have now memorized 100 words in Latin. They can conjugate verbs, decline nouns, and translate Latin sentences.  We began multiplying using an algorithm that will come in handy as we continue to solve harder and bigger math problems. Using a variety of strategies to attack problems helps us to get faster in solving them. Students launched into writing using the Story Sequence Outline. We are discovering key story elements such as plot, character, setting, conflict, climax, and resolution.  As we continue to work on our writing skills, students will have the opportunity to demonstrate their mastery of  those skills taught by entering the Burlington Writer’s Contest next quarter. In grammar, we are exercising our editing skills to correct Friendly letters and sentences. And in science, we continue to explore God’s creation and the beauty it demonstrates of His character, logic, and order. Newton discovered three laws of motion that govern our world, but decoding gravity was only part of Newton’s contribution. His other major mathematical preoccupation was calculus. Students observed first hand through a series of experiments just how these laws work. They may even be inspired to try out a few at home! 


4th Grade (Mrs. Burtram and Miss Abrahamsen) 

This Week
  • Fourth grade hit the ground running after the Thanksgiving Break. Our reading in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe has brought us to the climactic point at which the White Witch and Aslan have made a pact which will save Edmund’s life. We have discussed at length what true obedience is and how obeying someone who is commanding you to sin is NOT true obedience. The famous Battle of Hastings has been our topic of discussion in history; we have also continued our studies in chemistry. In our math lessons, we are moving to higher level multiplication as we are now multiplying two and three digit numbers together. In grammar, we reviewed all different editing skills, and we will be working on applying these skills to our own writing assignments in the coming days.
  • Upcoming: Ephesians 4:1-6 (due 12/8); Medieval Feast Day- December 20

7th Omnibus
  • Literature: Students spent one class period reading further in C.S. Lewis’ Til We Have Faces.  We discussed themes: ” veil”, “die before dying”, and “no face to face until we have faces”.  Students will write an in-class short essay on one of these themes.
  • History: We visited the world of an archeologist and focused on the Hittites and how they copied Babylonian features which posed  challenges to archeologists. 
  • Bible/Theology: We tied in Til We Have Faces’ theological links–the veil can represent sin and the need to do admit to a person’s sin and the need for a Savior…

Mr. Johnston

7th Logic
  • 7th Grade completed our discussion on Chapter Two dealing with faulty appeals to emotion.  Review this with you kids and I think it will lead to many profitable discussions around the dinner table.  We will move on to Red Herrings next week.

We are excited to have them back with us and to hear their wisdom.
  • All the juniors should have their PSAT scores now – if they have not seen them, let me know and I can help them to access their scores! 
  • In January and February we will plan to have SAT study sessions once a week in the afternoon to study for the SAT. 
  • I would also like to begin meeting individually with juniors throughout December and January to begin nailing down and planning next steps.
  • Also, as a reminder: 
    • Their PSAT score is an indication of how they might do on the SAT or ACT; they can look up colleges of interest and see how their scores compare to the average students accepted to that school
    • I recommend that all students take at least the SAT or ACT in March, though they could also take both tests
    • Taking the tests in March will give them time to evaluate where they are and make appropriate study goals for taking the test again either later in the spring or in August
    • The goal is to have a strong score in hand by October before they apply to colleges
      • Applying to many college’s scholarships requires applying to the college in October or November to qualify!
  • Now is the time to focus on applying for scholarships! Parents, you can be of help to your students by helping them to research scholarships that fit their qualifications.

Ask your son and/or daughter if they can name all seven and explain which biblical doctrine gives Christianity the only credible basis upon which we can claim to know anything. 

Coach Johnston

12th History
