Enjoy your weekend.
The Brent family welcome picnic scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed until next Sunday, September 30 (same time and place), due to the rainy weather forecast. We hope to see you next Sunday instead.
Enjoy your weekend.
The health and safety of our students are paramount to all of us at DC Public Schools (DCPS). To ensure the safety of the drinking water within schools, the Department of General Services (DGS) conducts water testing in all DCPS school buildings. Parents should review the letter regarding DCPS water safety and water testing from Carla Watson, DCPS’s Chief Operating Officer. We have also included the November 2017 test results below. If families have questions or need additional information, please contact Denise Diggs at email@example.com.

Dear Brent Families,
Thank you for joining us for Back to School Night last week! It was a pleasure to host our families for the launching point of our school year. If you missed the opening presentation or want to spend a moment reviewing it, please click here.
Also, we have a monthly Principal’s Coffee this Friday from 8:15am-9:00am in the main office. The monthly Principal’s Coffee is an open forum to discuss ideas, ask questions and listen to the perspectives of other community members. While any topic is always a welcome addition to the discussion, on Friday we will deepen our understanding of the Focus Teacher role at Brent, the processes that support it, and how it ties into our approach to intervention and enrichment.
I hope to see you there!
The Brent PTA will be selling used children’s books at its annual used book sale, held as part of the Brent Family Picnic on Sunday, September 16. Clear out books you no longer need from your kids’ book shelves and bring the books to Brent! There are collection boxes in front of the front office and on the stage in the multipurpose room.
We also really need medium and large cardboard boxes (broken down) for storing and transporting the books. Please put any box donations on the stage in the multipurpose room. All proceeds from the book sale will support the Brent PTA, and all leftover books will be donated to local nonprofits, church groups, and school organizations that provide books to kids who need them. No adult books please. Contact coordinator Sarah Carr (firstname.lastname@example.org, 202-302-3059, outside Ms. Miller’s PK room at drop off) for more information.
POSTPONED! New date: Sunday, September 30th
Live music, activities, food and meeting old and new friends from the Brent community.
The PTA needs your skills to make the magic happen at Brent. Please let us know how you would like to help Brent this year by filling out this survey: www.tinyurl.com/helpbrentbears
