Winter Clothing Drive

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Morning frosts are upon us, which means that winter is quickly approaching and we need to remember that there are people who lack the basic clothing needed to survive our Alberta winter.  With this in mind, the students in Mr. Smith’s grade 6 class will be spearheading the TENTH ANNUAL used clothing drive in support of the Bissell center.  We do not want you to go out and buy anything nor are we requesting any financial donations.  We simply ask that if you come across gently used, clean winter clothing that you no longer need, that you send it to the school with your child.  Coats, toques, mittens, gloves, scarves, boots, sweaters and ski pants are some examples of the clothing you could bring in.  Near the middle of December, the clothing will be taken to the Bissell center where it will be distributed to those families in need.  What may seem like an old useless scarf to us may be very special to someone else.  This is truly a situation where every little bit helps.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at

Thank you and have a safe and happy winter season.

School Fees

School fee information for the 2017-18 school year is now posted on the PowerSchool Parent Portal. All fees are due within 30 days of being posted. To access your fee information, simply log in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and go to “Student Fees.” There you can view your fees and pay them online using Visa, MasterCard or INTERAC Online—when available from your financial institution.

Don’t forget to also log in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal regularly throughout the year. Fees are often added to your child’s account to cover the cost of various school activities such as field trips, class projects, athletic-team fees and more.

If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your student fees, you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees. The application deadline is Dec. 15, 2017.

For more information about school fees, waivers and payment deadlines visit . Alternatively, contact Kim Webster, Bookkeeper, Brentwood  Elementary at 780-467-5591.

Request for Medical Information/Update

**Only to be filled out if your child carries an EpiPen/requires medication at school or any other information you feel the school should be aware of**

To ensure that we have current and accurate information, we ask that you complete applicable medical forms for your child.

This information is vital for those students who may require the use of an Epipen for anaphylactic allergies and/or a puffer for asthma.  If your child requires administrations of any prescription at school, then a medication/Personal Care Request and Authorization must be filled out. 

Please complete the ones that pertain to your child and have them returned to the office by September 29th or sooner.
