On October 27, 2016 from 6 - 7 p.m. we will be having our annual International Night. Each year Brent comes together as a community to celebrate our diversity and background. There is amazing food from various countries; Friends, fellow parents, and Brent kids dressed up in saris, lederhosen, waving flags — you name it! International Night offers up a POTLUCK dinner with food from around the globe for everyone to enjoy and includes the fabulous Kid’s International Fashion Show, international dances, and more! To make this a fabulous and educational evening for our students we are asking for help with the following (please mark accordingly on this spreadsheet)
With Halloween approaching, please remember that Brent is a nut-free school. We have several students with life-threatening nut allergies so it is critical that no food products containing nuts are brought into the building. We also strongly recommend that parents not pack candy in lunch boxes. Finally, please remind your child that students are not allowed to share or trade food during the school day. By complying with Brent’s nut free policy, we can keep all our kids safe while at school!
We’re in week 4 of the PTA Annual Fund Drive. Our goals are $100,000 and 100% Family Participation. If you haven’t given, please contribute today: put a check in the PTA lock box in the front office or donate online at http://bit.ly/BrentFund. And ask your employer about matching your contribution!
Brent will conduct the first mailing of box tops by November 1st. Please make sure that box tops are in an envelope or plastic baggie with child’s name, teacher and number of box tops. Our goal this year is $1,000. If we earn $1,000 or more we will receive a Bonus Check from Box Tops for Education.
