Brentwood families,

As Healthy Lifestyles month comes to a close, this week is all about the “P” in “MVP”: Practicing healthy habits. Part of wellness is keeping our body AND mind healthy—but it takes practice! Look for ideas on how to do this in the Heathy@Home handout that your child  brought home earlier this month.

Before the fall break, Omar Barnhart and Tricia Jones led a session at our Community PTA Meeting with ways to make fitness and nutrition fun and easy for your family. They are now offering a free RAH! Power Fitness workout to the Brentwood Community!

Some perks of the workout:

  • Convenient for parents, workouts are held near Brentwood Elementary (less than 5 minutes away) and fit easily into hectic schedules.
  • It’s fun, community-based fitness: Lift weights and sweat it out with fellow Brentwood parents and neighbors.
  • Discover how routine, accountability, and health (a.k.a., the R-A-H in R-A-H! Power Fitness) can decrease stress and help you become happier and healthier.
  • The first session is free; use the code "RAHPowerBrentwood" at

Need A Sitter?

Don’t forget, 5th Grade Troop 42625 is hosting a babysitting night on December 15. Drop your kindergarten through fourth-grade students off from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Brentwood Elementary. They’ll have fun and you’ll get some shopping or downtime in—a win-win! Note that dinner will be provided and the event will be capped at 30 kids.

Bulldog-Naming Contest

There’s still time… Choose a name for our bulldog mascot! For pre-K through 2nd graders, include your name along with your teacher’s and then fill in the following sentences:

I want to name the bulldog mascot ________. This is the best name because _________. _________’s favorite life skill is _____________.

For 3rd-5th graders, include the same personal information and then write at least 5 sentences about why our mascot should bear the name you suggest. 

Submissions are due by December 15 in a box located in the front office. We will announce the winner at the first Friday assembly of the spring 2024 semester!
