Hello Parents!

Welcome to all the new parents, and welcome back to all the returning parents.

Here are some upcoming events for the new school year. You can click on the Google Calendar button next to each event announcement to add it to your calendar. (Or see the sidebar to subscribe to the whole years worth of events in Google, Outlook or iCal.)

BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT: Please come meet your new teacher, see the classroom and say hi to all the other parents on Sept. 7 from 5:00-7:30 pm. There will be a presentation in the classroom, where your teacher will let you know plans and expectations for the year and how we all can help. The Friends of Braddock will set up a table where you can sign up to help with all this things we do for the school, and where you can donate to the cause. More on this below. There is no child care provided, and some folks bring kids but you do have to ask them to be patient as it’s not an exciting evening for them.

FRIENDS OF BRADDOCK: This is your Magnet school booster club and it’s the reason we have a teacher’s aide, fun field trips, cool computers & software, extra books, a spelling bee, yearbooks, and much more. We raise over $40,000 a year to make all this happen and we need your help to do it. Please come to a monthly meeting, share your ideas and your energy, and tell us how you can help the school this year. We want your suggestions for fundraising as well as fun activities and an even more enriching environment for our kids. Monthly meetings are the first Fridays of each month, at 8:10 am, at the school. The first meeting will be September 9.

PICNIC IN THE PARK: It’s a Braddock tradition! This year’s picnic will be September 10, from 11 am – 2 pm, at Glen Alla Park in Marina del Rey. The park is at 4601 Alla Rd, Marina Del Rey, CA 90292.
