PowerSchool & Fees

2019/20 School fees are now DUE and are available on PowerSchool. To access your fee information, simply log in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and go to “Student Fees.” There you can view your fees and pay them online using Visa, MasterCard or INTERAC Online—when available from your financial institution. 

Waiver of Fees (Does not include Field Trips)

If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your fees(noon hour supervision fees), you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.

The fee waiver application deadline—for both school and transportation fees—is Dec. 15, 2019.

If it’s determined fees aren’t eligible to be waived, based on the submitted application, payment options may be made with the school’s administration or the director of Student Transportation.

Pizza Day

On Wednesday, October 16th, Brentwood will be having pizza lunch!  Take a break from packing your child’s lunch that day and send a few dollars for a slice or two (or three).  Children can choose from cheese or pepperoni and slices are just $2 per piece.  (Sorry, no special orders can be accommodated)

Parent Teacher Interviews (October 23rd & October 24th)

Please use code rxqjz at www.schoolinterviews.ca to book your time. Site will open FRIDAY, October 18th@ 4pm.

Shoe Drive for Waste Reduction Week

It's that time of year again, we will be collecting footwear to be donated rather than ending up in the landfill as a part of Waste Reduction Week.

Footwear will be collected the week of Oct. 21 – 25.  Any type of footwear can be donated, in any condition.  Students get one ballot per pair of footwear donated for a chance to win great prizes!  Tie laces together or put an elastic around each pair, but don’t worry if you don’t have a rubber band, the Green Team can do that at school!

This initiative has already been a win...24 000 pairs of shoes were shipped last week, 12,500 of those came from last year’s drive alone. Our schools are making a HUGE impact. Not to mention, we estimate about 8 000 pairs were also kept with in our community. 

Lost & Found

Coats, shoes, sweaters, etc.  It is over-flowing.

Dressing for the Weather

Students will be outside for recess and are expected to bring jackets and appropriate clothing to stay warm and dry during these upcoming cold winter months.

Please ensure that your student is equipped with proper winter wear (warm footwear, jacket, mitts, hats, raincoats) Thank you, and stay warm!

Messages/Phone Calls for Home time

Other than Emergencies, please make sure all arrangements are made BEFORE 2pm. The office is extremely busy at the end of the day and we are receiving a high number of calls with after school plans.  Thank you.

Scholastic Book Fair

An Artic Adventure is blowing its way into Brentwood Elementary. Please come visit our library during Parent/Teacher interviews and check out our book fair. The dates are Wednesday October 23 and Thursday October 24. The book fair will be open from 3:30 to 7:30. Every purchase contributes to more books for our school.

 Enter in our family prize event and you can win $25.00 in books for your child and $25.00 in books for your child’s teacher.

I am also looking for volunteers to help with cash, help people find books and keeping things neat. Please email shila.king@eips.ca if you would like to volunteer.

Update Your PowerSchool Information

The PowerSchool Correction and Verification Form is available online, which replaces the paper form sent to families each fall. Families can use the form to access and update their child’s information—including address, parent and guardian information, emergency contacts and any medical information. Reviewing and updating the form ensures the school has the most up-to-date information regarding your child. All Brentwood Elementary families are asked to review their child’s PowerSchool Correction and Verification Form by ASAP

Clothing Store

New and improved Brentwood Clothing Store is now open.  This store will be open all year and the clothing is shipped directly to your home after you have placed your online order.

Medical Information

Does your child require medication at school?  Have you filled out all necessary forms?  This information is vital for those students who may require the use of an EpiPen for anaphylactic allergies and/or a puffer for asthma.  If your child requires administrations of any medications at school, then all applicable forms MUST be filled out. Forms available for download on our website under students/medical forms or in the office.

Check in to the Office

To maintain the safety of students and staff and to ensure that no unauthorized persons wander through the school, ALL visitors must visit the office first.  Please drop off skates, lunch, clothing items at the office.  Teachers have requested that their classrooms not be disrupted during instructional time.  Thanks everyone for your support.

Attendance Reporting

Attendance & Safe Arrival: One measure of keeping students safe is ensuring students have safely arrived at school. If your child is going to be late or absent for any reason, it is important that you contact the office immediately via email or phone (available 24hours/day) no later than 8:30am and report the reason for the absence/late. **Thank you kindly for your co-operation and support.
