Dear Brent Families-


Happy Kindness Week at Brent!  Remember, though it was national digital learning day at school, the Family Challenge for this evening was as follows:

Family:  Turn off all technology for 20 minutes and play a game together.  

Hopefully you had some time as a family tonight!  As we move into our final day tomorrow, a reminder: 

Brent Superhero Kindness Challenge Day 4 for Friday, Feb. 24th:

Students:  Pick up a backpack, coat, gloves or hat that is on the floor.  Help a friend!

Staff:  Send a parent an email about something great you noticed about their child.
