We'd also like to invite you to attend the parade downtown starting at 6:00 pm. The parade will lead through town and end at the BHS football field. It's sure to be a great night of fun and celebrating our Brighton community. We hope to see you there!
We want to let you know that our fall bus evacuations will be taking place between Oct. 15th-26th. We try to do these during our layover times at buildings to keep things on schedule. Parents may notice that their P.M. routes are slightly delayed but we'll do our best to avoid that.

Question of the Week
What I Learned From Last Week's Question
We are working hard to make sure Spencer is famous - famous for making the needs of the students first. Sometimes we hit some bumps in the road, but we are trying to keep the students' needs at the forefront and making sure our youngest learners have a voice. We are early in the year, but off to a great start.
