Next Friday, May 13th will be our Family Fun Night and Sports Silent Auction!!! This event will take place from 5:30pm – 8:00pm. That evening Hornung Elementary will have a carnival atmosphere. Our Hornung Teachers will be running the ever-favorite “Cake Walk”! Other highlights of the evening will include carnival games, a kid tattoo station, a food truck, and Kona Ice!

Sport Auction!!!…Bruce Mugerian will again be here with his sports memorabilia to bid on. There really are some amazing items that will be up for auction, which include autographed jerseys, pucks, baseballs and photos! The Sports Silent Auction will be in the stage area of the Media Center. Please see the flier below for more information!

Volunteers are needed to help run the carnival games and activities. Please click on the Sign Up Genius below to save your spot to volunteer. This is a perfect opportunity for middle school or high school students who need service hours.

Students can participate as individuals or in small groups of two to three students. Projects can be dropped off to the MULTIPURPOSE ROOM after 7:00 am. Projects MUST be picked up before 6:00 pm. All participants will be entered in a prize drawing and will receive recognition for participation.

Scholastic Spring Book Fair!!!

In last week’s Friday folder, we sent important information about our upcoming Scholastic Spring Book Fair that's being held this coming Monday May 9th through Friday, May 13th. We are looking forward to a return to an in person Book Fair and the excitement of kids shopping, and buying books in person. Make sure to mark your calendars for two special after school shopping opportunities. One on Wednesday May 11th from 4:00 - 6:00 pm and the other on Friday the 13th at the Family Fun Night. If you’d like to volunteer helping out in the Book Fair, please click on the link below to reserve your time

In addition, spend some quality time as a family checking out the great book selections in the Scholastic Catalog and online and prepare for a fun and successful Book Fair.

Happy Reading! Mr. Turner, Hornung Media Specialist

PTO Buzz

A big thanks to everyone who contributed to our Teacher Appreciation Week. The chalk messages, classroom books, bouquets, snacks, handmade cards, and luncheon let our staff really know how grateful we are for their efforts.

The Book Fair is next week and we could use a little help in the media center. Wednesday will be our ‘late’ night for parents to shop after school with their kids. Also, clean grocery bags would be useful as Scholastic is letting us recycle our own now.

Science Fair is Monday, May 9th. Projects can be dropped off in the multiple purpose room at 7am and need to be picked-up by 6pm. Look for an email from our coordinator for more details. If you’d like to come to school to have a picnic lunch with your child outside (bring a blanket) during their recess time, you can accompany them to the Science Fair or Book Fair after dining.

Family Fun Night is Friday May 13. We are so excited to be able to host this fun family event again! Pre-registration is due next Wednesday the 11th. Fliers went home with your child’s take home folder.

Your PTO,

President: Deanne Ferrell

Vice President: Jami Kilduff

Treasurer: Karen Nicholson

Counselor Corner

Well, we made it to the final stretch of the year! The last few weeks, 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. The Elementary Counselors would like to take time this month to celebrate our students and highlight their amazing strengths. We plan to take time with classrooms to focus on lessons missed at some other point in the year or revisit specific topics that need a refresher. 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.

More Resources: We also have our BAS Elementary Counseling website for ideas and resources to be used at home!

Mrs. McKiddy

Please do not send your child to school if your child is experiencing any illness symptoms such as,

  • Fever over 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath

  • Difficulty breathing

  • Other symptoms, including chills, body aches, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, diarrhea, and nausea/vomiting.

Thank you!

Note from the Attendance Secretary

Please call in your student's absence to the Attendance Line every day they are absent from school. Please give a brief reason why they are absent, whether it be a vacation, personal or illness. If your student is ill, please provide a brief description of their symptoms. If you do not call in your student's absence, a Robocall goes out around 2 PM. If you receive the Robocall, that means your student has an unexcused absence.

Please pack a change of clothes

Please make sure you pack a change of clothes in your child's backpack EVERY DAY. This is for ALL grades. You never know when your student may have a nosebleed, have a spill, get muddy or have a bathroom accident. If they have a change of clothes, then we can take care of it, otherwise we will need to call home for you to bring up a change of clothing. Thank you for your cooperation.

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.
