Winter weather is causing Brent’s lost and found to overflow! Please stop by the lost and found outside the library and retrieve any lost coats, jackets, sweaters and lunch boxes. Items not retrieved by Friday, September 26 will be donated to Goodwill.
End of year donations moved us past our budgeted goal! Thank you to the 180 Families who gave $115,141 to support Brent PTA. Your support makes a difference every day in the life of our students.
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.
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.
