Summer 2018
A quarterly supplement to the Bright Star Magazine
Music: Learn to Sing, Play and Appreciate
Since the early days of The Bright School, music and performance have been an integral part of a child’s education. This was the vision of founder Mary G. Bright, and it carries on today. Memories of Bright alumni, going back at least 75 years, almost always include playing “Country Gardens.”
Alumni Tributes
In late 2017, The Bright School lost two prominent alumni and supporters for whom two alumni awards are named. Jack McDonald ’45 died on November 25, 2017, and Fletcher Bright ’43 died a month later, on Christmas Day. The Board of Trustees adopted two resolutions in their honor this spring. 

Graduate Garlands
Margaret Lim ’11 at GPS and Allen Liu ’11 at McCallie were valedictorians of their classes. The Bright School is proud of all our graduates’ achievements. Eight Bright alumni have been local high school valedictorians and salutatorians in the last six years!
