Dear Bradford Woods Parents,
The Parent Faculty Association (PFA) Executive Committee would like to welcome you to Bradford Woods Elementary, and the 2017-2018 school year!
The PFA committee chairs have planned a year full of fun and excitement. The PFA is a working organization that provides volunteers and funds for programs that enhance the educational opportunities offered to our children. We help provide speakers and assemblies, field trips, playground and building supplies, homeroom parties, scholarships, staff appreciation, birthday books, and the publishing center are just some of the services provided or assisted by the PFA organization.

Parent Volunteers are just that...parents volunteering their time, skill, and talent to provide help to our teaching staff and students at Bradford Woods. Parent Volunteers can help in many areas: in the classroom, with special building projects, in the library, the K-5computer classes, or the publishing center. Parent Volunteers may even offer classroom support by working at home. Any amount of time is appreciated!

FAMILY FALL NIGHT:
The PFA has planned to celebrate at our annual Fall Family Night, scheduled for Friday, September 22nn, from 5 - 7 p.m. All BWE families are invited to this annual fun-filled evening to gather with old friends and make some new friends. Families can also visit with staff members and our principal, Mrs. Vernocy! Enjoy the Bradford Woods firetruck, DJ, face painting and more!
You can enjoy a casual dinner on the front lawn of the school! Some families choose to bring a picnic dinner. Or, a brand new feature this year, why not plan to order dinner from one of the exciting choices of food trucks we have lined up for the evening? The trucks are ready to serve you, just come hungry! The trucks accept cash or credit cards, and average meal prices are $6.00-$10.00. Please visit www.bwepfa.com and click on Family Fall Night on our website.
Each year we ask to have two parents serve as co-homeroom parents for each classroom. The responsibility of the Homeroom Parents is to coordinate the two class parties as well as to assist in other staff, teacher and class related projects. You must have your volunteer clearances in order to be a homeroom parent. This year we will be having a Holiday Party and a Spring Party.
