Principal’s Message - May 28, 2021

BMX Assembly! I’m sure you have already heard about our BMX Bike Assembly that occurred yesterday. These two young men that performed on BMX bikes was described to me as the “world’s best”. Their stunts of flipping, jumping and spinning were truly amazing! It was wonderful having our whole school together and hearing our kids whoop, holler and laugh! And…you may have also heard I was part of the show…See below ☺


Memorial Day…Please realize there will be no school this Monday, May 31st. We will resume school on Tuesday, June 1st. Enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend!!!


Sincerely, Jack Yates

Hornung Elementary Principal

PTO Buzz

Thursday, we had "Division BMX" perform for a school assembly outside. Kids got to watch some radical riding and learn about bike safety. It has been ages since we’ve had a school assembly, and this event was very welcome and well-received.


Plans are underway for The Hornung Elementary Field Day. This will be June 8th, with a rain-day alternate on June 9th. Be sure to pack extra water and lather the kids up with sunscreen before drop-off! Your teacher’s newsletters should be asking for volunteers, so reach out if interested. Please understand that space may be limited for a set number of volunteers per classroom.


Our 4th Grand Celebration is also underway and scheduled for June 10th. Kids will be treated with burgers (beef, turkey or veggie), chips, cookies and a drink. We will move the celebration indoors if it rains.


Your re-elected 2021-22 Pandemic PTO,

Counselor Corner

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.
