Community Bulletin Board

  • Welcome to the Brighton Central School District’s Community Bulletin Board where you can find community related e-flyers and links. Our District works with community non-profit organizations to present information about local activities that have educational, civic, recreational or cultural value for students.  Information posted has been approved for distribution as a public service. The school district does not endorse community information posted here and does not assume responsibility for the activity or the organization. 

    We respectfully request that you do not contact principals and schools in our District directly. If you wish to submit information to share on the Bulletin Board, please email Dan Goldman, Communications Coordinator, at daniel_goldman@bcsd.org

    In talking to community non-profit organizations, we learned that some families are not seeing information and flyers on the Community Bulletin Board and in our weekly District eNewsIn order to help get the word out about these programs, we’re going to offer limited flyer distribution a few times a year at Council Rock Primary School and French Road Elementary School. The deadlines for submission will be Oct. 15Jan. 14, March 11, and May 13 and they would be distributed the following week. Flyers must be approved before they are dropped off at schools. Contact Communications Coordinator Dan Goldman at daniel_goldman@bcsd.org for approval and details on how many flyers to print and how to group them for classroom distribution. We will still post community information to the Community Bulletin Board and in the District eNews.
