Dear Brentwood Science Magnet Parents, Students, and Community,
Welcome back to Brentwood Science Magnet for an exciting 2013-2014 school year. This summer I hope you had opportunities to learn and explore as well as spend time with friends and family. I am looking forward to the outstanding experiences we will have this school year.
I am embarking on my third year as your principal and I am still in awe of you. It is an honor and privilege to be able to serve such a diverse school community. Diversity gives our school uniqueness and strength. Our strength lies in endless opportunities to increase our cultural awareness of one another and learn from our differences. This is done via rigorous instruction addressing various learning styles and providing differentiation through Inquiry-based experiences, art, high cognitive and engaging tasks, empathy and collaboration. This approach to teaching and learning produces critically thinking students who can solve complex problems. The world needs individuals who can respect one another, ask questions, and work together to find solutions. The children are our future. We want them to be prepared to make our world a better place.
Be an active participant at the home of the Tigers by volunteering and supporting school activities, events, and projects. Give what you can no matter how small. Your support and/or presence on campus will be received with gratitude and appreciation. Together Everyone Achieves More (T.E.A.M) because working together will enable us to provide rich and meaningful experiences for our students that they will value for a lifetime.
As we prepare to enter into the 2013-2014 school year, please calendar these important upcoming dates:
• Student enrollment will begin on Tuesday July 23, 2013. The office will be open between the hours of 7:30 AM and 4:30 PM.

Once again, I would like to express my sincere desire to serve the Brentwood Science Magnet community and positively move forward together.
