Welcome to First Grade at BES!!!
I am so excited to welcome your child to first grade.  I have taught at Brighton Elementary School 
for 28 years. First grade is 
a wonderful grade. Your child will learn so much. It is so amazing seeing how much they learn, but it is a challenging year. 
I hope we can work together to make this a successful year for your child.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

Skyward Family Access is a way for you to have access to your child's grades, conduct, discipline and attendance.  You can obtain these forms on our school website or through the front office.  A copy of your driver's license is also required to activate your account.  You may turn these in to the front office or send with your child in an envelope addressed as Skyward Family Access.  It usually takes 24-48 hours to get your account activated.
