Being physically active and healthy is something to do every day wherever you are. Normally, Bright Fit is a week-long celebration held at school, but this year students are participating at home.
The Bright School will remain closed through the end of the school year and provide distance learning for students. All events for the remainder of the year are cancelled except for Bluegrass and BBQ and Graduation, which will be rescheduled at a later date.
Following tornadoes that swept through Hamilton County and north Georgia, Bright School stood ready to support and help those impacted. "We are strong and able to weather most anything, and these days are no exception. By staying connected and supporting one another, we will make it through these challenges stronger than ever," said Head of School O.J. Morgan.
We are still taking applications for the 2020-21 school year. Please contact our director of admissions for more information.

Flexibility is the key to the classroom of today. Our first, second and third grade classrooms were outfitted with new furniture during last summer's renovations. This new furniture, including new tables in first grade, allow for better collaboration and flexibility.
Lori Nichols literally draws from nature. The author and illustrator of the books Maple and Maple and Willow Together talked to students about how she finds inspiration in trees, plants, rocks and anything she finds outside. She demonstrated her drawing technique by using letters to make faces.
