Principal's Message

As the final days wrap up I want to thank you for a great school year.  Each year is very unique and has its own challenges. It is a privilege to be a part of Brentwood Elementary.  Our school is a special place, made so by wonderful people who believe in what we do for our students.  While I am looking forward to a break and know that the students and teachers need one too, I can't help but be excited for next year.  Thank you for a great 2015-2016 school year!  Have a great summer and be safe! 

Please visit our website regularly to see the wonderful events at our school.

Camp YoWoChAs.

September 12th-14th, the grade six students will embark on a teambuilding experience at Camp YoWoChAs.  The activities will help develop leadership qualities, self-esteem, build interpersonal relationships and friendships and most importantly promote character and value development.  Some of the activities will include zip lining, rope climbing, archery, and canoeing.  In the evening, the students will enjoy games, skits and even a campfire. 

The three day camping experience will include 7 meals, evening snacks, and accommodations.  This camping experience is designed to take place early in fall, so that we get to know the students on a personal level and the students have a chance to team build with each other.

We will require parent volunteers to make this trip a success!  If you are interested in volunteering, please email tracy.russell@eips.caIt is important, due to camp being at the beginning of September, for all volunteers to complete their Criminal Record check this summer.  Without the criminal record check, we cannot allow volunteers to join us on the overnight camping trip.

For more information on the camp and the experience your child will receive, please visit Camp YoWoChAs’s website (
