Dear Brent Community,

Welcome back from the All Saints’ Break! Here are some updates for the week.

  • A big round of applause to all members of the Varsity Boys’ and Girls’ Volleyball teams who demonstrated inspiring skills and admirable sportsmanship and the staff members who invested their time and effort in preparing our teams for the ISAC Volleyball event at Southville from October 25th to 29th. Our gratitude to Coach Drew Hare, Coach Vince, Coach Clarie, Ms. Marriet, the faculty, staff, PTA, parents, and our community. Additionally, we’d like to acknowledge the students, faculty, and parents who showed their support through both in-person presence and video cheering—your incredible Bulldog spirit shines brightly!

  • We also recognize and thank those involved in the October Assemblies/Chapel events, such as the continuation of STUCO Pink Shirt Day and Anti-Bullying presentations on October 24th, and our boarding team for a lovely chapel on October 25th.
