I am excited about the next chapter of Brent’s success, Brent 2020: Planning Strategically. The Strategic Plan process created a very clear path forward and I am thrilled to see that plan actualized. Through the DCPS budget process, we were able to add positions to our staff for next year, namely a new 4th grade teacher, a full-time social worker, and a new SpEd teacher. Attached is the presentation from our April 1 PTA meeting.

Again, I look forward to Brent becoming an even better institution for student learning and social growth than it already is! Happy Spring Break!

“A Taste of the Hill” is an annual fundraising gala hosted by the Brent PTA to provide the very best resources possible to support all Brent students. Besides superb food and wine, the event features live music, dancing and fabulous auction items such as vacations stays, artwork, dining gift certificates, and creative class baskets.

Brent students, teachers, and parent volunteers have put their hearts, talents and countless hours into preparing a wonderful 2014-15 Brent school musical, Willy Wonka, Jr. – a children’s  musical version of Roald Dahl’s timeless story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Please come out to support them and enjoy an evening of entertainment and memory-making with your Brent community!

There are two performances – Wednesday, March 11, 6:00 – 7:30 pm and Thursday, March 12, 6:00 – 7:30 pm in the Brent Elementary School Multi-Purpose Room. You may also attend a Dress Rehearsal on Wednesday, March 11, 1:30 pm. Flower bouquets are available for purchase for the performers at the Brent Store through Monday, March 9.

A big thanks to all who are making this year’s school play possible through their generous donations of time and talents!
