Last week, second grade poets found inspiration and practiced seeing the world through “poet’s glasses” at the Renwick Gallery. While at the museum, students searched for details in works of art that others may miss. After observing a piece, small groups worked together to brainstorm verbs, adjectives and emotions that they later combined to create shared poems. Through interactive discussions, our guides also helped students learn how the artist’s choice of materials helps to convey their message. After returning to school, students continued to experiment with line breaks to refine these poems, prior to displaying them on the bulletin board outside the second grade classrooms. Please come see what we’ve created!
The Brent Diversity Committee thanks the families who braved the cold to celebrate Martin Luther King Day. The peace walk and parade were great celebrations of unity. Our next meeting is January 31 at 6:30. We will be discussing Black History Month festivities. All are welcome. Please join us.
Brent Bears are excited to participate in their second Club Day of the year! The day will begin with an all-school morning meeting in the multi-purpose room led by the fabulous second grade team. Later, from 10:05-10:50 all Brent children and staff will participate in a wide variety of clubs based on their personal interests. This year, we have 41 different clubs including art, water works, and basketball, architecture, theater, sewing, scrapbooking, Hogwarts, and many more. If you would like to learn more about what is happening in clubs, check out the “Club Spotlight” bulletin board located in the back hallway of Brent’s first floor. Also, Brent is kicking off our new recycling program! Stay tuned for updates on Brent’s recycling efforts.
