Principal's Message

Dear Brightwood Families:


Welcome to the start of another school year Brightwood STARs!  Last year was an amazing year despite the challenges with the COVID 19 pandemic.  We were able to provide so many experiences and opportunities for our students!  Some of those events and opportunities included Middle School clubs, after school enrichment and intervention and the end of year PBIS Extravaganza!  I know the 2022-2023 school year will prove to be even better!


I am excited to continue as the Principal of Brightwood Elementary School this school year.  Great things are happening at here! We encourage you to get involved by joining our amazing PTA, attending and volunteering at school activities, and taking an active role in your child's education. Please don't hesitate to let us know if we can be of any assistance. We are here to help you and, most importantly, to help your child be successful!


It is my hope that we will work together to provide the students the best opportunities in preparing for the world. As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input.  Please feel free to call or email to make an appointment to discuss your concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this year the best it can be!


As the opening of the school year inches closer, Alhambra Unified School District and I will be sending out detailed information regarding the start of the new school year.  Stay Tuned!


To our new families, WELCOME to Brightwood!


Brightwood Students are S.T.A.R.s!


Yours in Service,

Candace Griego
