Title I

Partner with us for the 2018-2019 school year!


Title I Parent Advisory Council Meetings

The Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is made up of a parent representative from each grade level, the principal, a teacher, and the parent outreach facilitator. The PAC meets at least three times a year and gives input and direction for the Title I program including the school compact, the school policy for parent involvement, and the parent workshops. ALL parents at Bright Star Elementary School are invited and encouraged to attend and participate in all PAC meetings. The meetings will be advertised on the school website, on signage, and through flyers. Please note that dates and times are subject to change.

Bright Star's STEAMING and SOARING Above the Rest: STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. We focus on these areas together not only because the skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential for student success, but also because these fields are deeply intertwined in the real world and how students learn most effectively. You will not leave empty handed!

You are always welcome at the STAR!
