This Friday, November 16th, come to the recently opened Valor Brewpub on 8th St to support the Annual Fund while also supporting local veterans. Valor Brewpub is not only veteran-owned (one of the veteran owners is a Brent parent), they also hire as many local veterans as possible through outreach to the DC Office of Veterans Affairs. This Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. when you eat, drink, and be merry at Valor, just mention Brent Elementary and 10% will be donated to the Brent Annual Fund. The restaurant is located at 723 8th St SE across from the Marine Barracks. We hope that this Veterans Day you will put Valor Brewpub on your calendar for happy hour or dinner this Friday.
Math Night is tonight (Thursday, Nov. 8), in the multi-purpose room. Pizza will be served from 6-6:30PM, and then families are invited to explore and play math games from 6:30-7:30. There will be games from every grade level, as well as resources and ideas for ways to bring more math in to your daily lives. There will be door prizes, and packets full of games will be available for every family to take home! We hope to see you there!
We have a new t-shirt design! Because everyone loves the Brent staff shirts, we designed one for our community to include adult and kid sizes. We even included a v-neck for the ladies! The back of one of the shirts even includes our Brent values! If you are interested, please visit
and order directly from Bay Imprint. The website will be live for another few days and then we will close it down and the order will be placed and shipped!
Need warmer school clothes for fall? Lands' End is having a sale October 18-23. Remember to enter our school code 900176801 and Brent PTA receives a portion of the sale.
Did you pick out some uniform items at the used uniform table or want to donate to the program? You found the place to do it! All donations are given to the school to purchase uniforms for students in need.
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
