Halloween Note:


Come and join the fun as Brentwood Elementary celebrates Halloween by dressing in costume and participating in the all school parade.  The parade will begin at 8:30 AM as we stroll through the courtyard.  All costumes need to be appropriate for school and weapons as props will not be allowed.  Masks will only be worn during the parade and not during the remainder of the school day or recess.  Due to the issues involving scary clowns happening in society, scary clown costumes will not be allowed at school. Dress code rules still apply and appropriate (safe) footwear must be worn.  Thank you for your attention to these matters.

  • Bring a healthy snack to school today to give your body energy to be active! Include a fruit or veggie in your lunch instead of crackers, chips or cookies. Or choose something from the salad bar if you are buying hot lunch. And don’t forget…the cafeteria provides free fresh fruit to all students at snack recess!


  • Red Ribbon Lunch Lap is today! All students and staff are invited to come walk or jog around our Red Ribbon Lunch Lap during lunch recess. Make it a heart healthy day!


  • Walk, scoot or bike to school today! If you already walk, scoot, skate or bike to school, add an extra lap, or take a walk after dinner tonight (with your parents). You can even do a few laps around your own backyard! There are so many ways to exercise! Remember to wear your helmet and be safe.


  • Red Ribbon Health and Safety Camp is today! All students and staff are invited to join us at our fitness stations during lunch recess! Just look for the balloons….we’ll have a variety of fun fitness activities to challenge you!

  • Drink water and milk most often
  • Limit screen time (TV, DVD, video games, computers)
  • Get up, get outside, and get active and fit!
  • Listen to your body, rest when you are tired
  • And feed your brain…be curious, ask questions, read, learn, empower yourself!

Square 1 Art

Dear Family,

We have partnered with your child’s school to create a unique opportunity to celebrate their artistic accomplishments while raising much needed funds for the school.

Coming home soon will be your child’s custom catalog featuring their artwork. Won’t you help make your child feel like an accomplished artist by purchasing keepsakes for the whole family containing their masterpiece? The school earns profit from every order. And as a thank you for participating, we provide each child with a sheet of stickers imprinted with their artwork — absolutely FREE!

Watch for more details about the campaign and order deadlines. All online and paper order forms must be turned in by the due date on your child’s custom catalog. (No late orders can be accepted.) Together, we can help support the school, build your child’s self-esteem, and create lasting keepsakes from your child’s artistic achievements.


  1. The paper order form attached to their custom catalog.
  2. Online at www.square1art.com/shop.
  3. Phone Customer Care 888-332-3294.

A huge thank you to all of the teachers, faculty and volunteers for their help in creating this meaningful fundraiser.
