Hornung Elementary supports Senior Survivor Week! - Annually, Brighton Area Schools raises money for a chosen charity by participating in events throughout the different schools and donates all funds raised to that charity. This year, the BHS National Honor Society selected two local charities, Fund a Life and I Will Right Now.
Fund a Life…This is an organization founded by stage IV Melanoma survivor, Mark Howell. He uses his drive in order to provide assistance to local individuals and families struggling with an unexpected and life-altering event.
I Will Right Now…This is a non-profit organization that helps others navigate through a life-threatening diagnosis. Mission: To provide HOPE and HELP through financial gifts to families dealing with a catastrophe.
Hornung Elementary supported these great causes by students participating in a PJ Day. Every dollar raised went directly to these important charities. I am very proud of our students as we raised hundreds of dollars to assist others in need.

Hello Maltby Incoming 5th Grade Bullpup Families!!
We are excited to announce our Maltby June Building Tour for our new Bullpups!
During the week of June 21st families can sign up for their Bullpup to come in and have the chance to see their new school and do a self- guided tour/ scavenger hunt!
Students (with 1 accompanying adult please) can tour the building and collect a sticker at each major building area (cafeteria, Media Center, gymnasium, etc)!!
1 hour time slots are available to tour the building on June 22nd - 25th. Please plan on wearing a face covering and using appropriate social distancing between families- thank you. We are looking forward to getting the chance to meet our new Bullpups as they “Step Up” to Maltby Intermediate!
Please use our Sign-Up Genius page to reserve a day and time for your tour:
Can’t make that week- please do not panic!! We are planning on hosting our typical student orientation for 5th graders on August 23rd. Students can tour the building, see their classrooms, try their locker, and have their portrait taken for our Bullpup ID’s and yearbook!!
Looking forward to another great group of Maltby Bullpup 5th graders!
Field day is Tuesday June 8th. Teachers will be looking for classroom volunteers. Keep an eye out for these emails. Be sure your son/daughter has lots of water and sunscreen on for field day. They will be outside for 2 hours.
Thanks to all the parents that sent in donations for Senior Survivor Week. The money will go to a great cause.

Well, we made it to the final stretch of the year! The last month, when the sun is shining and energy is high! And after so many months of hurdles and challenges, it is time to celebrate all that we accomplished and overcame during this school year. From masks and cohort bubbles to virtual lessons and synchronous learning, we have done it all in a year like no other. The Elementary Counselors would like to take time this month to celebrate our students and highlight their amazing strengths with a Social-Emotional lesson centered around self-concept. We plan to take time with classrooms to reflect on what we CAN DO, what we DO WELL, and what makes us UNIQUE. We want to end this year on a positive note and recognize how truly resilient our students are, and we hope that you take some time at home to do this as well.
Thank you for the amazing support from our staff and parents as we worked to connect with and support all of our students this year. We are already working towards our plans for next school year and look forward to expanding our avenues of support.
Lets Connect: If you are noticing some behaviors that are interfering with your child’s success in the classroom, please feel free to complete my parent referral form and we can work together to determine if supports are needed here at school.
More Resources: We also have our BAS Elementary Counseling website for ideas and resources to be used at home!

The McKinney Vento Act
The Brighton Area Schools is part of a consortium to serve students in temporary living situations that provides financial support for educational needs, referral for housing, clothing and other needs, general support and technical assistance. To ensure compliance with federal law, all school staff must help identify student living in the following situations: emergency shelters/transitional housing, motels/hotels, car, parks or public spaces, shared housing due to a loss of housing or economic hardship, or living temporarily with non-parent or guardian.
The district’s homeless liaison is Starr Acromite and each building has trained staff members to assist in the endeavor. Our consortium contact at the Livingston Educational Service Agency is Candice Uyttendaele.
Please contact your building principal or Starr Acromite at 810-299-4040 for information/assistance.
Reminder that students should not be playing on the playground before school starts. We have no adult supervision before school on the playground so it is not safe.
Also, only Hornung students can be on the playground during school hours up until Friendship Center dismissal at 5:30 pm.
