MAGIC MOUNTAIN IN THE CLOUD PROGRAM

Dear Brent family,

Warm greetings from Brent Baguio!

It’s been a great first week of learning and adjusting for the whole Brent community, and we want to thank you all for the ongoing support of our children and the MMC program.

With September upon us, here are a few updates.

  1. Our Lower School Bulletin for August/September is up on our website: https://brentbaguio.edu.ph/lower-school-newsletter/

  2. Thank you to our STUDENT COUNCIL for making these Brent dress code posters! The posters don’t only remind us how our attire helps us with starting our day of learning with a fresh #BeMyBestAtBrent mindset, but we also get a chance to meet our STUCO officers: Andy, Paolo, Mishka and Junjun! Posters are attached.

Feel free to download/print the posters to use at home

  1. Our first Lower School (LS), Middle School (MS) and Upper School (US) assemblies yesterday, Wednesday, September 2 had very interesting topics! Here’s sharing some key points that the family could also talk about at home.

We got to know about our brains!
  1. Images and objects can bring up special memories and feelings.
  2. When we are calm, we can self-regulate, think clearly, remember, and pay attention.
  3. What we can name, we can tame. We can find ways to help let go or remove what stresses us out.
  4. Our experiences structurally and functionally change our brains, and we are always growing and learning, repairing and healing.
  5. Together, we are creating habits that will make us learn better.
