Northern Lights Elementary Bright Start 2018

Dear Families:

WELCOME!  The Northern Lights Elementary’s  Bright Start will be held on Monday, September 10.  Remember, attendance is mandatory as it is a required school day.  Attendance will be taken by each classroom teacher.  A parent/guardian must accompany each student at all times.

The purpose of Bright Start is to provide a way for all students, parents, and teachers to start the school year in a positive way with the most current school-year information available. Plan to spend approximately 1 ½ hours at Bright Start with your student(s).

In order to devote quality time with families, we have created sessions.  Please attend the session time listed by the first letter of your child’s last name.  If you are unable to attend at that time and/or have children with different last names, please attend the session that fits your needs.  

Last Names A-G: 9:00 am - Check-In Last Names H-M: 10:00 am - Check-In

Last Names N-Z: 1:00 pm - Check-In

Staff members will not be available from 11:30-12:30.

You and your child should plan on visiting the student’s classroom(s), completing the Bright Start Checklist, updating your emergency information, and participating in the Community Resource Fair. Your child will leave with you after the orientation.
