The Brent State of the School Presentation will be part of Wednesday’s PTA meeting beginning at 6:30 p.m. Intended to reflect our past, present and future, this presentation will give the Brent Community an overview of Brent’s work over the first half of the academic year, describe future initiatives as well as look to strategic planning for the next couple of years. There will also be an extended question and answer session. As always, free childcare (including pizza) will be provided. As a reminder, the meeting will be streamed live via Facebook Live on Brent’s Facebook page so you can participate and stay informed even if you cannot be there in person. The meetings are also archived on Brent’s FB page so you can stay up to date on the PTA events on your schedule. ASL interpreters will be provided for this meeting.
