There is a ton of information to help you stay informed throughout the year!!
We are building our distribution list for this year. In order to help make sure everyone is included in the list, we have created a link on our website at www.brightenacademy.com. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and see the "Stay Connected" section. Click on the green box labeled "Here" to complete the form.
If you have not received a "Test" email from us then you are not in the current distribution list.
We had this link available at Open House, and many of our parents were able to successfully join the distribution list. If you did not enter this information in to the computer at Open House, please be sure to register on our website. Help us Stay Connected!
