Welcome to the 107th year of Bright! We are happy to start school and excited to begin the year in newly-renovated classrooms.
This fall, we're launching a new initiative focused on eco-literacy and outdoor learning for JPK, PK, and kindergarten classes.
Students learn who their teachers will be, and everyone will get to see the newly-renovated first, second and third grade classrooms.
A group of students and young alumni explored Italy this summer with Mr. Morgan, Mrs. Lusk and Miss Oakes. They visited Rome, Florence and Venice.
Workers emptied the first, second, and third grade classrooms and removed all cabinets and boards to make way for renovations that will enhance and improve our learning spaces. Renovations are scheduled to be completed by Registration Day on August 14.
The school's 106th graduation was held last Friday in the Centennial Theater. John Pregulman '70 told the graduates and their families about his experiences in making choices and learning about how other people are affected by the choices they make.
The cabin, built from 150-year-old logs salvaged from a cabin in Arkansas, was made possible by the Schillhahn-Huskey Foundation. It will be used for educational activities and outdoor athletic equipment storage.
Pierson Brown '11 was the winner of the 2019 Citizen of the World Award, which honors young alumni who are taking a leadership role in community service. Fifth graders choose the winner based on nominations and a specific criteria.
The Bright School Picnic is one of the favorite traditions of the school loved by current students and alumni. Each year, we gather for races like the sack race, three-legged, wheelbarrow and egg and spoon.
The fifth grade recognition assembly is a time to honor the achievements of the graduating class. Students are honored for their participation and accomplishments in the classroom, after school activities, sports and the community. There were 25 fifth graders who received President's Excellence Awards.
