Welcome March and hello to spring!
Our Bobcat 5 trait for March is cooperation. Teamwork is an important part of every day life at Brecht. As a school community, we value cooperation and working together to achieve goals. During the month of March we will be recognizing students for their cooperation at home. Cooperation alerts have been sent home. This is your chance to highlight how your child cooperates at home. Your child may bring the cooperation alert back to school and we will proudly display this alert in the office hallway. I look forward to reading about all the ways our Bobcats show cooperation at home!
January and February have been busy months at Brecht. The PTO sponsored Bingo Night, Hearts and Manners, and a great Dance Party. We recognized Brecht’s awesome support staff during the week of February 25th. We also had a wonderful Open House, Project Fair and Book Fair. Proceeds from the Book Fair will go to purchasing additional books for our library. In February, we focused on Black History Month as we learned about famous black American heroes. To top it off, Brecht’s new entrance was completed and it looks fabulous.
