Everyone’s flexibility and positive approach to our difficult situation showed the resiliency of the Brentonian. You all set the positive tone and create a safe environment our students need to grow academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. A big “Thank you!” to everyone. We can do this!

How wonderful it is to celebrate this special season by watching amazing performances and viewing the incredible artwork of our talented students displayed in the Fine Arts hallways. From band, jazz band, orchestra, and choir to dance and art, the Visual and Performing Arts department does not disappoint! Like always, great job everyone.
This year’s Christmas Concert was made even more memorable because of the appreciation Brent received from the President of the International Olympic Committee, Mr. Thomas Bach, for last year’s performance of the Olympic Anthem.
What a truly joyous holiday celebration, and a great way to get into the Christmas spirit!
