Wise and Compassionate Citizens of the World

Community Service is an integral part of the curriculum and experience of Bright. Throughout the year, our students and families may donate money or items and volunteer their time for a variety of causes through grade-level projects. 

Chattanooga Area Food Bank

Food Bank Check Presentation 2017

The Bright School began a partnership with the food bank in the 2015-16 school year. Students donate certain food items during a one-day drive in January in conjunction with the fifth grade vs. faculty basketball game.

Katie's Krops

Katie's Krops Garden

Our youngest students learn and play in the Early Childhood Gardens adjacent to our Early Childhood Center and Enchanted Forest Playground. Throughout the year, children plant and harvest vegetables. They get to sample the bounty and also share it with our community by donating it to the food pantry at Signal Mountain Social Services. The Bright School is proud our garden is the first Katie's Krops Garden in Tennessee. Katie's Krops is a non-profit organization that provides seeds and other support to help school and individuals grow vegetables to donate to community organizations.

Grade-Level Projects

Each grade is assigned one month to complete a community service during the year. Students and teachers in that grade choose the project and organization to help and work during the month. Students present their project to the school during a Monday morning meeting at the end of the month.
