Hello, Brentwood families!

This is our last Bulldog Bark before Winter Break. We have just a few quick notes and reminders for you before the holiday.

If you’re looking for a way to get involved next year, help plan Brentwood After Dark 2024. Brentwood PTA's annual adults-only night out and fundraiser will be in the spring, and we'd love some assistance in bringing this fun event to life. Please email if you are interested in showcasing your talents on any of the following teams:

  • Event planning — design, venue, food, drink, entertainment, childcare 
  • Event management — coordination of vendors, goods and materials, ticket sales
  • Sponsorship — silent auction donations, live auction items, raffle and title sponsorship 

Science Fair Registration Closing Soon!

Your budding scientist can design, create, and explore all kinds of cool projects at the Brentwood Science Fair! The fair, open to all students in pre-K through 5th grade, will be held on Thursday, January 18 and Friday, January 19, 2024. 

Please sign up by December 19 so that the science fair team can plan accordingly—and so your scientists can work on their projects over Winter Break! Look for the flyer that went home in your Bulldogs take-home folder, or download the full information packet.

Tell All Your Friends!

There is an upcoming prospective families tour on Friday, January 12 at 8:30 a.m. Be sure and spread the word, as the priority registration deadline is approaching February 6. Share the Brentwood love!

Wrap It Up, Mac!

The MACares committee, in partnership with campus counseling staff, is supporting families in need this holiday season. The program assists all campuses within the MAC vertical team; like Brentwood Elementary, Gullet Elementary, Lamar Middle School, and McCallum High School. There are a few ways to get involved: Become a donor family or business and organize gifts for a family. Or donate to the general fund to help cover last-minute requests.

Budding Artists

Thanks to all of our talented Bulldogs who submitted their creations to the Reflections art program this year. Be sure to check out their incredible work in the art room display cases starting in January. Congratulations to the following students, who will advance to the regional level for truly capturing the theme, “I Am Hopeful Because…” both in their artist statement and in their creative piece.

As we begin to see 2023 in the rearview mirror, it's time to look ahead for new opportunities to broaden our students' horizons, a.k.a., after-school care. Click here for a full listing of all after-school offerings at Brentwood.

The Overflowing Lost and Found

Pick up your missing jackets, water bottles, lunch boxes, and more, from the Lost and Found rack. Where is this infamous rack, you ask? Find it in the Community Room, which is always available to access in the mornings or afternoons. Or check out the Lost and Found page on the PTA website for recent pictures of lost and forlorn items. Please note that everything will be donated to families in need in January!
