This is a friendly reminder that the Winter concerts are this week on January 25 for our ECE-1st grade musicians and January 26 for our 2nd-5th grade musicians. Both concerts will be from 6:00 - 6:45 PM. Mr. Krohn asks that students arrive by 5:30 PM on their respective concert date wearing a white top with dark pants/skirt/dress. 3rd grade students are reminded to bring their recorders.
At the January PTA meeting, Peter Young, Brent's principal, Sara Ewbank, Brent's assistant principal for literacy, and Chloe Patterson, a special education teacher at Brent, presented on Brent's approach to behavior and discipline. Below are the slides to the presentation.
Brent’s Approach to Behavior and Discipline
The Winter Bird Count organized by the Brent science teacher Mike Mangiaracina is back on again this year and is going to be held the morning of Saturday, January 7. There is a new and exciting twist this year too! The Bird Count is expanding to be open to all kids in Ward 6, and different schools around the ward will take turns hosting. This year J.O. Wilson Elementary School (on the other side of Capitol Hill at 660 K St NE) will be hosting.
Given the Brent community's extensive experience with this event, we would really appreciate help from Brent parents to staff the event this year. Please sign up for a short shift helping out.
As we move into the new calendar year Brent is asking for your attention and assistance in ensuring that your student arrives on time! Arriving on time:
-Provides our teachers with the opportunity to work with our students without interruption.
-Supports improved social interactions in morning meetings
-Supports your child’s academic engagement and success by preventing them from falling behind and losing confidence in their academic abilities. Brent is committed to this effort. We have developed action steps to make this a priority.
