Dear Brent Families,

Where did the summer go! It is once again that exciting time of the year where schools are opening back up, and teachers are preparing their classrooms as we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our new students.  To our returning Brent families, thank you for your partnership and welcome back to another awesome year!  To our new families, we are so excited that you have joined the Finneytown Local School District and Brent Elementary community.  To further engage you in the happenings in Finneytown Local Schools, as well as Brent Elementary, please bookmark our school’s website on your computer or smartphone, as I look forward to continuing to showcase and highlight our students and their learning throughout the year. We will be communicating news and important dates, and keeping content current.  I will also be communicating a weekly Principal’s newsletter, “The Brent Beat” to keep our families and community informed and engaged in your child’s education. 

 I am very excited to become the Brent Principal.  I am extremely honored and proud to have the opportunity to serve the students, teachers, and the families of Finneytown Local Schools.

Some initiatives that the Brent staff will continue to focus on are our implementation of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) for students, with a focus on our Brent students being good citizens, as well as continuing to focus on our students growing as readers, writers, and mathematicians.

Brent Elementary School is a special place. I felt it throughout last year and I am excited to work with such a talented and dedicated staff.  My door is always open to our parents, families, and community members.  Communication is very important to me as we partner with you in providing our Brent Wildcats a first class, quality, education.  The Brent Elementary phone number is (513) 728-3720.  I am also easily accessible by email at

Go Wildcats!
