School Council News | September

Summer greetings from Brentwood School Council! It is hard to believe how fast the summer break has come and is almost gone. Welcome back to another exciting school year. We look forward to seeing the returning students and staff along with parents and getting to know all the new faces in and around the school. Brentwood School is a diverse, vibrant and welcoming community where every child is actively engaged in effective learning and in developing the citizenship skills he or she will require to become a positive contributing member of society. School council is committed to supporting our students fulfilling these needs along with the amazing and talented group of administrators and facilitators at Brentwood School.

Our annual Welcome Back Breakfast will kick start the school council year on Friday, September 15th at 8:30 am. This is a School Council sponsored event. All students and family members are invited to join us for a bite to eat and meet the staff. Bring in your empty bottles for our fundraising bottle drive. Please stay tuned for upcoming volunteer opportunities for this event. If you know that you have an hour or two of time to help setup, hand out food or even cleanup afterwards, then please email and let Alina know; no experience required.

Throughout the school year we will be focusing on bringing new opportunities to the children and supporting them in their learning, growth, and health inclusive of both body and mind. We encourage parents to join the monthly meetings to support our children and bring together the knowledge and information we all have within us. Everyone is welcome, your time is greatly appreciated.

Our first fundraiser is underway. You can purchase your AdMazing Savings coupon books, for only $20, through your child from their teacher, or at the front office.

Labeling all your child’s items going to school with them will help to reduce lost and found and the possible need to repurchase items. Buy your Mabel’s labels online and remember to click on Brentwood School to support our fundraiser.

Our next School Council meeting will be held Tuesday, September 19th at 7:00pm in the school library. Everyone is welcome. Come see what we are up to and feel free to share your ideas.
