Dear Bradfield Families,
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year. This is an exciting year as we are “On the Move” to our temporary campus at 3920 Caruth Blvd. while our new forever home is built. I am honored to serve as this year’s PTA President. I am proud to be part of the Bradfield family and look forward to the many exciting events we have planned for this coming year!
We invite all of our parents to join the PTA. The PTA supports our school and staff by volunteering up at school, planning fun, family events and fundraising.
While our location is changing, the PTA’s goal for fundraising remains unchanged – to provide our teachers and administrators with the resources and tools they need to inspire and educate our kids. We want to provide opportunities for our children so they
receive the very best education possible.
Why does the PTA need to raise money?
Highland Park Independent School District gives more than 70% of our tax dollars to the state of Texas every year. This means for every additional $1 the school needs, the District must raise taxes by $3.33. A more efficient way to raise funds is through private donations since all of that money stays within Bradfield. In order to maintain the caliber of education in our district, the PTA and our generous families help bridge the gap.
How do we spend the money?
Last year the PTA and Dads Club gifted nearly $700,000 to Bradfield. We fund ongoing expenses like:
- Teaching assistants to help students one-on-one
- Passport to Spanish program
- Classroom libraries
- Teacher continuing education and Masters programs
- Paper, toner, and copier leases
- Science supplies
- Buses for field trips
- Computers, tablets and software
How can I help?
Please consider Bradfield in your charitable giving. This is a direct investment in your child’s daily educational experience. You have an opportunity to make a difference in our school.
The easiest way to support Bradfield is through our Annual Family Giving Campaign that happens during Back to School Sign Up. We also have event-based fundraisers throughout the year like the Adventure Dash Fun Run (our fall student fundraiser), the Fall Carnival and the Bradfield Auction (our largest fundraising event). We hope you will consider supporting these events, too!
