Focus on Family
At Brentwood, we welcome all family members into the classroom on a daily basis and for our many special events celebrating family throughout the year.
The Kindergarten agendas enhance the partnership between parents and teachers and strengthen the Home-School connection.
Progress reports, parent/teacher interviews and student-led interviews all help to keep parents informed and involved in their child's education.
We encourage families to learn together through our homework assignments sent home once a month and our L.I.F.T (Literacy is a Family Thing) program that promotes literacy at home.
