Bright Elementary School received an “A” school rating the last 13 out of 14 years.
The Sunman Dearborn Community School parents and patrons should be very pleased and proud of the outstanding ISTEP+ results for all of the Sunman Dearborn schools. This “school grade” is a reflection of the hard work of our students, parents and staffs. While we are proud of these results we cannot be satisfied – all must continuously strive to better every day in every way. We must also keep in mind that the ISTEP+ test results are just one of many indicators of success upon which we measure the strength of our school.
Bright Elementary School is hosting a Pirate themed book fair this year. Book Fair Dates are from September 26th to 30th. Each student's class has been assigned a specific date and time when they will attend.
The evening Family event will be Wednesday, September 28th from 3:35-6:30. Mrs. Hemphling will be selling raffle tickets, in the evening only for a chance to win 1 of 2 bean bag chair and 1 of 4 emoji pillows. The cost of each ticket is $.50 and all proceeds go to the All For Books program which not only goes toward books for our school but also books for other schools in need.
FALL BREAK WILL TAKE PLACE FROM OCTOBER 7TH TO OCTOBER 14TH
PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES WILL TAKE PLACE THE EVENING OF OCTOBER 6TH AND FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 7TH. PLEASE CONTACT YOUR CHILD'S TEACHER IF YOU NEED TO SET UP A TIME.
