A few bits for the week...

  • Class photos went home last Wednesday. Please check those backpacks and let me know if you didn't get one!

  • Ask your child about the two field trips we went on this week, “The Lion King” at Sidney Elementary and The Victoria Bug Zoo. Check Seesaw for new photos.

  • Ask your child about the Science Venture P.A.W.S (Properties of Air, Water, and Soil) workshop we participated in last Monday.

  • This month, Brentwood has been celebrating “Aboriginal Month” with special activities on Wednesdays. Ask your child what he/she has learned about PowWow dancing.

  • No School this coming Victoria Day, Monday, May 23rd.

  • This coming Wednesday is Parent Appreciation Day. Swing by the school for a baked treat knowing that we appreciate all you do to support your child's (children's) learning here at school and at home! Thank you!

  • New Spelling this week! Please help your child return his/her homework book every Thursday. Being responsible for these books and the work in them is an important start to building positive homework habits for future years.
