Welcome, New Families!

Dear Incoming Families,

Welcome to Braddock Gifted Magnet! We are pleased that you will be joining our school community for the 2017-2018 school year.

The easiest way to accept or decline this placement is through your online eChoices account. You can also call the school and leave a voicemail 24 hours a day. If you do not accept or decline the placement, your child will be automatically declined by the District on April 7, 2017 and you will lose any accumulated Magnet points.

Please come in to pick up an enrollment packet between 7 A.M. and 4 P.M. in the main office. Completed packets should be returned no later than May 2.

We will have a New Student Orientation for incoming families on Friday, May 12, 2017 from 8:30-10 A.M., at which time we will tour the school and visit the classrooms.
