The 2014-2015 school year has started off strong at Brent! Our students quickly settled back into routines, reconnected with old friends and started making new ones. The Brent staff worked hard in the late Spring and Summer to prepare for a successful school year.

And a very special thanks to our three amazing custodians – Byron Anderson, Mary Young and Constance Daniels – who worked many long hours including weekends cleaning, painting, repairing, organizing and doing the countless other jobs they do to maintain Brent Elementary. I sincerely appreciate their dedication to the children and staff.

Finally, please review the Parent Checklist in Tues News. We need a couple of important forms from families so please complete those forms and send them back this week.

We are looking forward to a great year! If you ever have a question or concern, you should feel free to contact me at peter.young@dc.gov or call the front office at (202) 698-3363.

Welcome back! The Brent Staff have been working extremely hard to prepare for the arrival of our students and are excited to see everyone soon at the Open House. Below are the class lists by grade.

Back to School time is quickly approaching, and  by now, all Brent families should have  received a packet by mail with communications from Principal Young and the  PTA Board, an informative Tues News (Summer Issue), and information about the Annual School Supplies / Field Trip Fee, Online Lunch Money Accounts, and Subsidized School Meals Application Form.

In case you missed it, you can read and download it here as well:  Summer Letter

Enjoy the rest of your summer. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Happy Summer Brent! We hope you and your families are having a fun summer filled with lots of reading.  We have had over 350 entries on the Brent Summer Reading Log! Don’t forget to keep reading and logging so you’re ready for the first day of school on Monday, August 25th!

Happy Summer Brent!

Below is the 2014-2015 School Plan as presented (albeit too quickly) during our final PTA meeting. I am very much looking forward to engaging with everyone in the Strategic Planning process as we think about how to make Brent great in all aspects of our school/community life!

Stay cool everyone,

Principal Young
