Cold Weather and Indoor Recess

Students will be outside unless it is approximately -22 degrees Celsius or colder, taking into account the wind chill. During cold winter days, please make sure students are dressed appropriately with hats, mitts, boots and snow pants.

Parking

Recently we have been experiencing some issues in our parking lot when it comes time for student pick-up and drop-off. I just wanted to make sure that everyone was clear of the rules for the signage that is currently in our parking lot.  The changes are for the safety of our students and thus a major priority in our school.

In the image there are three different locations that have identified.

GREEN ZONE – You are allowed to park and leave your vehicle here

YELLOW ZONE – This is a drop-off/pick up zone. You are allowed to stop here, but the driver must stay within their vehicle. There is a painted zone on the pavement that is meant for student to walk safely to and from the school

RED ZONE – There is no parking or stopping allowed in this zone. This zone is considered a fire route and if there were ever an emergency and vehicles were parked here if may hinder the efficiency of our First Responders

 If you are in violation of these rules there is potential to be ticketed by a RCMP or By-Law officer. Please follow the rules to keep all of the students, staff, and visitors of Brentwood safe.

Thank you!

Donations

Please consider donating your gently used or new skates and helmets to our school.  These are used for students who do not have skates/helmets or have forgotten theirs at home.  Thank you

Be a wee read volunteer!

We would like to thank all our wee read volunteers that read with our kindergarten and grade one students. Thank you for bringing the joy of reading to our young students! You were such a benefit to the teachers and students and we are thankful for you and the time you devoted to this wonderful program.

Be a wee read volunteer!


We are looking for volunteers who can come to the school for about 30 minutes, once a week, for eight consecutive weeks to read with two children, talk about books, and play games that support literacy skills. This eight-week program was designed by Alberta Reads (www.albertareadsnetwork.com) to help Kindergarten and Grade One children strengthen the foundations for reading and school success, and help children develop a love for books.
If you are interested in being part of this fun and meaningful opportunity, or know of someone who might be, there will be a volunteer training session held in the library on Monday, January 29th from 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm. We hope that you will consider partnering with us on this. Please let Tracy Russell (tracy.russell@eips.ca) know by Friday, January 26th if you would like to volunteer and will be at the training session.
