As we all know, our Brentwood staff has been working very hard this year! We want to show our appreciation for them and all that they do for our students and families. Feel free to drop off items at the front office or carpool to show your appreciation for our staff. View the flyer for more information (remember the deadline is EXTENDED through the end of next week).
