BRENT NEWS & UPDATES
Last weekend, the Brent Christmas Tree and Holiday in its seventh year, continued to serve not only as a fundraiser but as a community gathering with former Brent families and Capitol Hill neighbors coming to the Brent playground to pick out Christmas trees, buy cookies, select wreaths and garland. An event as successful as the Christmas Tree and Holiday sale has its partners. Tues News would like to give a huge shout out to Bookstore Movers, a local moving company. With each tree weighing at least 50 pounds and over 1000 trees to unload off a semi-truck, the fabulous and fantastic Bookstore Movers crew was instrumental in getting the sale set up. (Brent community – support this local business and think about Bookstore Movers for your moving needs). Also, please take a moment to thank and congratulate the events leads, Josh Drobnyk, Alyson Lewis and John Fleming who worked so tirelessly to ensure another terrific event. And for the over 90 volunteers at the event, thank you for launching the holiday season for the community.
The Book Fair is in full swing. Please check out the wonderful selection of books and get some holiday shopping done while supporting our library. The fair is open before school from 8:00 - 8:30 am and after school from 3:30 - 4:30 pm. On Wednesday it will be open until 6:30 pm. You can also shop online at http:// bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/brentelementaryschool3. If you can help with the book sale and/or the pack-up on Friday, Dec. 8 at 4:30 pm, please contact Ms. Bettina (firstname.lastname@example.org).
