Midsummer Update 07-13-2022



JULY 13, 2022



Our Midsummer Update contains pertinent information for the beginning of the new school year.  Please review the information carefully and send any questions you have to office@bradfordacademy.org.  We trust these summer weeks are a true respite for your family.

Of importance:
  • Order uniforms now (if you haven’t done so already)!  Shipping is never fast, so time is required to process and receive the orders.  There are some delays on certain items that our supplier is working to restock.  Feel free to reach out to the office if you run into any problems.  I am happy to help.
  • PE: K – 5th grades – They will not be changing into a PE uniform again this year, but we do ask that they have a pair of the black PE shorts for our special events (soccer tournament, Greek Olympics, field day, etc.).  We recommend that their everyday school shoe is a black athletic shoe that would be great for PE and active recesses.  (They should have a dress shoe for dress uniform days.)
  • Required Summer Reading:  6th – 12th grades – Please return books as soon as you finish with them so classmates can check them out.
  • Summer Reading for House points!  1st – 5th grades – Please visit our library to check out books to help your house win!
  • Immunization updates needed!  Students in Kindergarten, 7th, and 12th grades must submit an updated immunization record by the first day of school.
  • Ongoing opportunities this summer:
    • Tuesdays,  6:30-9pm:  Pick up soccer at the MACC
    • Wednesdays, 9-10am:  Cross Country Runs – any Athletes in 6th – 12th grades can run at the main campus
