Chester County Reading Olympics is designed to inspire students to read for pleasure and learn the value of teamwork at the same time! In addition to helping students develop a habit of daily reading for pleasure, the Chester County Reading Olympics provides students with the opportunity to have interactive discussions with their peers on the content of the books.
Students form teams to read 45 books to prepare for the culminating event. The teams come together in the spring at an assigned Chester County school location to answer questions about the books. The teams accumulate points for every correct answer during three rounds of questioning earning each team member a blue, red, or white ribbon based on the number of points their team has earned. Volunteers from area schools serve as moderators and scorekeepers to ask questions and keep score.
Aevidum means “I Got Your Back”! This program started in Lancaster County and is now a program spreading across the nation. At the elementary level, the concept of Aevidum helps to teach our kids about the importance of supporting and caring for each other. Some of the Little Aevidum topics include emotions, empathy, perspective, goal setting, and caring compliments. In Little Aevidum, we will introduce these topics through mini-lessons and then reinforce the topic through a fun activity, such as making kindness rocks or leaving little caring notes around the school to spread kindness to our peers.
Bradford Heights Elementary values its connection with the local community, and partners with many youth organizations to host events and meetings here at the building. Click on the tabs you see here for more information about some of these exciting opportunities.
Cub Scout Pack 215 serves boys at Bradford Heights in first through fifth grade. Cub Scouts provides an opportunity for boys to develop character, citizenship, and fitness through a program of outdoor adventure, classic activities, service projects, and a grade based awards program.
The Pack has one activity and one meeting per month. One other weeks, the grade-specific Dens meet. The Pack’s outdoor adventure program includes camping trips throughout the year, hiking, bicycling, exploring, canoeing, fishing, climbing, shooting sports, and winter sports as well as a week at summer camp. Classic Cub Scouts activities include our annual Pinewood Derby race, a rocket launch, a soapbox derby car race, campfires, and marching in the Memorial Day parade.

Girl Scouting is very active at Bradford Heights. We have at least 1 troop in every grade at the school. Each troop is composed of girls in the same grade level, a leader, an assistant leader, and parent volunteers that rotate to help out. Meetings are usually held 1-2 times a month, either right after school or in the evening, depending on the leaders' schedule.
With Girl Scouts, each day is a new adventure. Most troops also go on trips, hikes, camping adventures, attend local programming and also participate in the Downingtown Girl Scout Service Unit's programs right here in our hometown like the Gal/Pal dance (girl and father figures,) International Fair, and the Holiday Parade to name a few. Start the fun now and contact Bradford Height's Girl Scout school coordinator, Sharon Plichta -- she can put you in touch with the appropriate troop for you daughter.
