We said farewell to several faculty and staff members who are retiring or leaving for other opportunities. School secretary Janie Lemoine, coach Jan Connell and KEC instructor Susan Jones are retiring. Math Academy teacher Diane Kemp is leaving Bright for a position at Ron Clark Academy, and early childhood Spanish instructor Claudia Rodriguez is leaving for a position at GPS.
Students celebrated at the end of the year with a Dress Like Coach Connell Day. While students showed up to school wearing crazy shirts, socks and hats, Coach Connell wore an evening gown as a surprise.
