Brightwood Tiger Weekly News

Weekly Update for March 21 - March 25, 2022


Good Evening Brightwood Family, this is Principal Stokes!


Welcome to another great week of learning. Happy Sunday! This is reminder that our doors open at 7:00 am and tardy bell rings at 7:25 am. Please remember that everyone should be prepared to show identification card when picking up a student early which should be for emergencies and appointments should be done before 1:45 pm.


We have a lot of testing coming up before Spring Break and yes, we still have a lot teaching and learning that must occur. On Monday and Wednesday this week all students will be taking the NWEA assessment. This assessment will provide us with data on students’ academic progress over three quarters. Parents we need all students to bring their devices and charging cords to school daily but especially on testing days. Several of our assessments are administered on the devices and it makes it very difficult to test the children if they don’t have their device.


Please come and join on Monday March 21 for Brightwood’s Cici’s Pizza Night.

Tuesday March 22 from 6:00 – 7:30 pm there is an AG 101: Guidance for 2nd Grade Students information session being hosted by Parent Academy. Registration information is on school website and ClassDojo story.


Thursday our Third Quarter ends and Friday is a Teacher’s Workday students do not have school on Friday. This Saturday March 26 Out of the Garden will be at Piedmont Classical High School with fresh vegetable, fruits and much more starting at 2 pm.


Spring pictures and class pictures will take place on Monday March 28. Please mark the date on your calendar.


Please remember all students were given One Cards with the exceptions of those that just enrolled. All children are expected to wear his/her one card and lanyard. All bus riders need their One Cards to get on and off the bus. All students need their cards to sign in and out of school.


As we know it was voted that students have an option for wearing their mask. If you child is coughing, sneezing and/or showing any cold/flu like symptoms we will ask them to put on mask as a layer of protections. As before if your child is displaying of the symptom please keep them home and get them tested and/or seek medical guidance from your medical physician.


We greatly appreciate your support as we continuously work to provide an excellent education every day to each of our Brightwood Tiger this school year. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us here at the school or send us a message on ClassDojo.



Thank you for all that you do and have a great evening. And Remember as always you are amazing!



Love Your Proud Principal

About Us....

Our Vision

Brightwood is a community of 21st century learners who value the importance of education by consistently promoting mutual respect, personal responsibility, and high expectations.


Our Mission Statement

The Brightwood School Community will create a positive learning environment where individual needs are met through:

  • Establishing and developing relationships using clear coherent expectations for students, parents, staff and community.
  • Consistent implementation of Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS).
  • Rigorous instruction focused on students' development of critical thinking, problem solving, information and technology skills, and collaboration.
  • Progression towards highly functioning Professional Learning Communities (PLC).



Brightwood Creed

The Brightwood Creed sets the tone of the day for students and creates a focus for them. It will be recited by all students each morning during the morning announcements. While the creed is recited, all movement and talking throughout the building should cease, especially in the hallways.


As a Brightwood Tiger, I will show:


P - Personal Responsibility

R - Respect

I - Integrity

D - Determination

E - Excellence


I will be successful!
