Good Evening Brightwood Tiger. This is Principal Stokes. Welcome to Our Game Changing School Year! Please remember we welcome our Tigers into the building beginning at 7:05 am and the tardy bell rings at 7:25 am.

This is a reminder that picture day is tomorrow. We ask that they dress their best Students will need to make sure that they bring their devices back to school fully charged. We have testing this week. Students in grades K-3 will be taking their math NWEA assessment on Tuesday during their Math block. 4th and 5th Grade will take their Literacy NWEA on Thursday October 6th during literacy and their Math NWEA during their Math block. They will need their devices completely charged and working correctly.

This is a reminder that we do not have school on Wednesday October 5, 2022 it is a teacher’s workday!

Please plan to join us on Thursday October 6, at Cici’s Pizza on Battleground, a percent of every purchase made on Thursday is donated to the school.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month as a school we will be participating in activities to promote KINDNESS, ACCEPTANCE, and INCLUSION to prevent bullying in the classroom and other youth settings. WEEK ONE we will EXPLORE and Learn how kindness, acceptance, and inclusion can help prevent bullying.

The Book Fair is coming October 10 – October 14, please visit our school website for more information.

Please mark your calendar for October 21 our Annual Fall Festival. If you are interested in joining our PTA, please contact our current PTA president for more information.

Parents many students were issued their devices please help us with reminding the students that their devices are to be used for academic purposes only. We are finding that many students are taking pictures, recoding videos and playing games on their devices. Please take the time to check your child’s device to ensure that they are properly using his/her device. We are not able to replace chargers at this time so if your child did not return a charger last year or have lost their charger this school year, we will not be able to replace it at this time. It will need to be replaced by the parent or guardian.

One cards all students in grades first through fifth that were issued a One Card must bring their One Card to school daily. If the student does not have their issued One Card it will need to be replaced. A new One Card cost five dollars each time it is lost.

Parents remember our safety protocols include that parents are not allowed to enter the building during our morning drop off and afternoon pick up times. When only students enter the building during these times, we can keep a laser focus eye on the children which allows us to be more equipped to recognize any potential suspicious activity. We welcome you to contact the school and/or your child’s teacher to schedule 15-minute classroom visits and meetings. Parents are not allowed to eat lunch with students as of right now we are just now transitioning back to eating in the cafeteria. We are teaching our children the cafeteria expectations.

School dismissal will begin at 2:13, instruction ends at 2:10 pm. Please make sure you have photo ID with you each time you need to pick your child up early for appointment and emergencies which is before 1:45 pm

We thank you so much for all that you do! Remember it is always a Great Day to Be a Brightwood Tiger! Have a wonderful evening remember to be amazing, because you are Amazing.

Love Always Your Proud Principal

Ms. LaTrice Stokes

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!
