Vision Statement

We, the Brentwood family, are committed to providing a safe, respectful and caring environment with challenging experiences to promote success for all.

Mission Statement

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year.  We are looking forward to an exciting and successful year! Brentwood Elementary School is continuing to participate in Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS), a school-wide program that fosters positive behaviors in our students. At Brentwood Elementary, we have adopted the “Eagle Code” to remind us of the positive behaviors that will support a positive and safe learning environment.

I am a Brentwood eagle soaring

 Safely on my way
     Organized everyday
               Accountable for what I do
               Respectful to me and you

Schools are successful when they help children grow academically, socially, and emotionally. In order for this to happen it is imperative that we have a safe environment that is supportive and conducive for growth. By setting forth clear social and behavioral expectations and directly teaching students about those expectations, it is our goal to create a positive atmosphere for optimal learning.

Students will have an opportunity to earn five PBIS tickets daily from their teacher. Students will earn these tickets at different periods throughout the day. Although our PBIS approach emphasizes appropriate positive behaviors, some students may violate school rules. If they do, they will not earn a PBIS ticket for that time frame. Students are also able to earn tickets for showing positive behavior throughout the school from other faculty and staff. We believe that by encouraging students to engage in appropriate behavior, we will continue with a school community where all students have the opportunity to grow and succeed.

We encourage you to review the Eagle Code above, the Expectations Matrix (click on the link) and Voice Level Matrix (click on the link) with your child. At Brentwood Elementary, we are dedicated to creating a positive and safe learning environment for all students and we value your continued dedication and support. Together, we can make a difference!

Attendance Policy

Attendance at Brentwood Elementary is an integral part of our school day.  Being on time, and in school everyday can greatly enhance your child’s educational progress.  Here at Brentwood our goal is to maintain or increase our attendance rate to 96%.   We understand that illnesses do occur, however we do ask that you and your child make every effort to attend school regularly.  Please remember that whenever your child is absent to send a note explaining your child’s absence or absences.  If  a note is not received, the absence will be coded unlawful.  If your child is sick and will be out more than one day, please call your child’s teacher. Please also be aware, that excessive absences or tardies can result in an referral to the Department of Social Services.  Thank you for helping us maintain and instill good attendance habits in the students here at Brentwood Elementary.  If you have any questions about attendance, please feel free to contact Tynika Sutton at Brentwood and she will be happy to answer any questions that you have.

New Grading Scale and Quality Points

Effective with the 2015-2016 school year, students in grades 3-12 will use a 10 point grading scale.  This video link explains the changes based on updates in the NC State Effective Board of Education Policy and the Cumberland County Schools Board of Education Policy.
