The Bright School Picnic is May 18

The 105th annual Bright School Picnic is next Friday, May 18. There is no school on this day. Lunch of fried chicken and sandwiches is provided at $5 a person, except for fifth graders and their families. The reservation form and payment are due to the office by Thursday, May 10.

The picnic begins at 9 a.m. at Cross Creek Farm, 530 Craven Road, Ringgold, Georgia. Directions to the farm are included on the reservation form.

All children attend the picnic under adult supervision. Children may not be dropped off. This is a fun day for parents, too! Students will compete by grade in traditional picnic events such as the sack race and three-legged race, and the finale includes grade vs. grade tug-of-war competitions. Bring your blanket and lawn chairs to enjoy the races and lunch. Families may leave at their leisure. The fifth grade softball game begins after lunch.

Girl Scouts Water Challenge Continues

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Girl Scouts Water Challenge during Bright Fit Week. The Brownies helped Mr. Paul and Mr. Ed install a bottle filler on one of the water fountains on the Mondo, and both fountains now work.

There are still water fountains in the school that need repairs and bottle fillers added. You can donate spare change in the collector in the front lobby or send change with your child. The students love watching the coins spin around the collection funnel.
