Mission, Goals & School Creed

OUR MISSION STATEMENT
With passion and persistence we will perpetually pursue Excellence…for learning is our TOP PRIORITY!
 

School Creed

A school creed is a way to express the community’s shared values. It is a commitment of the school’s beliefs and positive affirmations.

I am a winner of excellence in every way.
What I think, I can write, I can read and I can say.
I will always say yes to right.
I will say no to the wrong.
With all others, I will try my best to get along.
Respect I’ll give – Respect I’ll earn.
I know that I come to Tom Bradley to learn.
There are some things no one can take from me.
My pride, my self-discipline, and my awesome dignity.
And so I will do my best to excel in every way.
For I am a Winner of Excellence today and always!

History:

Dr. Shepherd (Bradley Elementary's principal for 30 years) wanted students to be inspired to start the day, ready to learn. During the 1984-1985 school year, Dr. Shepherd wrote the creed to have the school community recite it each morning.
