Thank you for visiting the Tohickon Valley Elementary School website. Our website is a great resource to learn about the myriad of wonderful things involving the students, faculty and staff of Tohickon Valley.
I am the proud principal of Tohickon Valley Elementary School where I have the privilege of serving students, teachers, staff, families, and stakeholders in the Quakertown Community School District. Collectively, this is a source of pride because we are working together to be our best and prepare college and career ready students to leave and serve and pursue their dreams. To that end, the faculty and staff and I are committed to our vision: "Student Achievement for All - Whatever it Takes!"
I am eager to fostering positive relationships, partnering with families and growing alongside our students, staff, families, and community. As the leader of our Tohickon Valley family, I thought it would be beneficial to share some of my core educational beliefs.
Professional Values as Principal
My personal values are inextricably married to my professional values and are well-summed up by my favorite poet, William Arthur Ward, in the words of this poem:
Believe while others are doubting.
Plan while others are playing.
Study while others are sleeping.
Decide while others are delaying.
Prepare while others are daydreaming.
Begin while others are procrastinating.
Work while others are wishing.
Save while others are wasting.
Listen while others are talking.
Smile while others are frowning.
Commend while others are criticizing.
Persist while others are quitting.
I look forward to our continued partnership as everyone at T.V. is working together to be our very best! Let’s make it a terrific school year!
Your partner in education,
Dr. Orathia T. Bradley, Principal
