Students prepare for and participate in music programs throughout the year. At Christmas, each class performs a skit, song, poem, etc. that is themed for Christmas. At the end of every year, the students also perform songs and skits. Each year has a different theme.
Brighton News is a morning announcements show that is broadcast on a closed-circuit TV channel here at Brighton. Each day a different student is selected to be a co-anchor, read the weather, and read the lunch menu. The students really feel like “movie stars” when they’re on camera.
Spirit Store is held on a day during a designated month and students are allowed to purchase candy and drinks from the store. They use Bengal Tickets to purchase the items. Bengal Tickets are rewarded to those students who have had good behavior throughout the week.
D.A.R.E. is a series of classroom lessons that teaches children how to resist peer pressure and live productive drug- and violence-free lives.

Our annual Scholastic Book Fair is a celebration of reading. Students take part in a week full of fun activities. There’s always a wonderful selection of books to choose from. Students are encouraged to discover new worlds and journey on new adventures when they open up a book and read.
A fun-filled day for the students with games, a rock wall, a cake walk, prizes and more! The students look forward to Fall Festival every year.
Each year we host our Grandparents Day in November and invite Brighton grandparents to come and have lunch with their grandchildren. The students turn in pictures of themselves with their grandparents and a slideshow is shown during lunch.
6th graders and their K-1 buddies decorate wagons which they use as floats. The 6th graders pull the K-1 students in the wagons and throw out beads, and trinkets.
Students enter their pet(s) in the Pet Show. They walk with their pets and show them off. Teachers judge categories such as “Best in Show”, “Friendliest”, “Loudest Bark”, and “Best Dressed” just to name a few. Every pet wins a prize!
At the end of each year, we plan a fun day for the whole campus. We have snowballs, Games 2 U, obstacle courses, etc. It’s a fun way to celebrate the end of a good school year.
Moving On Ceremony
At the end of every school year, our 6th grade class has a graduation ceremony that we call the Moving On Ceremony. It signifies the students “moving on” from the elementary campus to the high school campus. Each student receives a certificate and an award.
