Bright - "A School to Emulate!"

A Fresh Start - 1/2 - 1/6/17

Happy New Year!

Hello Bright Staff!


Welcome Back! I hope everyone had an enjoyable and restful couple of weeks. We have a wonderful opportunity to be a light and touch the lives of our students each day. This is a responsibility that I know each of you holds dear. Students return tomorrow and it could feel like the first day of school. Be sure to review classroom routines, procedures, and expectations. Let's also show them how happy we are to have them at school. Again, great work today!


Duty Schedule & Expectations: As you know, the schedule has been revised. Carrie made hard copies available during our Professional Learning or you can click the link https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dwF0o_4FL8DO5LtlBQ3I_9K0Km2pEo25sYGkAdCOULY/edit. The document is located in the Google Staff Folder - Arrival & Dismissal. Please be sure to have a representative pick-up the students in your grade level at 7:20 am. All outside duties must remain on location until students have safely arrived.


Student Management:

You have been doing a great job of implementing the campus-wide procedures and expectations. CABS will continue to support our campus and problem solve strategies to help our students be sucessful. I appreciate your flexibility with implementing the revisions.


Thanks everyone and let's have a great week!
