No Birthday/Celebration Treats in School
We know you want to celebrate special days such as birthdays with your child's class, however, our handbook states this is not allowed at Brentwood. Please refrain from sending any classroom treats in to school. This is NOT a new policy. We will continue to offer special days throughout the year where our teachers and PTO plan fun activities for our students (during school hours as well as outside of school hours).
Thank you for your assistance as we continue to enforce the rules set forth in our handbook.

Our PTO Needs YOUR Help!!!
We are looking for a dozen or so parents to help on several committees for this year in a variety of capacities. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Staff Appreciation Committee - arrange items for the event and help set up/ clean up for their events during the year typically 3-4 events during the year.
Carnival Committee (Mar 4th) - this committee will be working together to divide and conquer the list of things that need to happen to make the carnival a success. We will have a separate meeting with this group to get the ball rolling in November. Most of the time is spent prior to carnival and maybe 1-2 hours setting up and cleaning up prior.
Breakfast in the Brentwood Cafeteria
Our cafeteria doesn't only offer a delicious and nutritious lunch, but also breakfast EVERY DAY. If your student wishes to purchase breakfast in the morning they can head straight to the cafeteria and make their food selections (just as they do at lunchtime) and enjoy it before school. Staff members monitor their breakfast time and ensure they make it to their homeroom on time!
School breakfast costs $1.30 per day and you can find our breakfast and lunch menus at http://www.plainfield.k12.in.us/o/brentwood-elementary-school/dining.

2016 Plainfield Community Schools Legacy Foundation Major Saver Campaign
Small Card, BIG Results
The Plainfield Community Schools Legacy Foundation is once again offering Major Saver cards for sale through the Plainfield elementary schools. Students will receive the sales packets on Wednesday, November 2nd and can continue to sell the $10 discount cards until Monday, November 14th. Proceeds from the sale of Major Saver cards directly support the participating schools and the activities of the Plainfield Community Schools Legacy Foundation.
The 2016 participating restaurants/establishments include: Sky Zone, U Paint Pottery Studio, Qdoba, Dunkin Donuts, Hardees, Culver’s, Popeye’s, Rally’s, Orange Leaf, Papa John’s, White Castle, Burger King, Gladdaugh Irish Pub, Arby’s, Firehouse Subs, Monster Golf, Panda Express, Dairy Queen and Fazoli’s.
Major Saver cards can be purchased via cash, check or online at www.majorsaver.com. The online sale can be credited back to a particular classroom and school. All cards purchased online will be mailed directly to the customer. Classroom Incentives will be fulfilled by the end of the campaign.
Major Saver stresses safe selling and discourages door to door campaigning. The company encourages students to sell to family members, church patrons, neighbors, or other adults the family may know; and to always make sure their parents are involved.
Major Saver cards can also be purchased, and credited to a student, through the Major Saver App. Once the free app is downloaded to an Android or iOS device, buyers can choose a Major Saver card through the “buy cards” tab on the app. Once the buyer completes the transaction the offers will be stored in the Major Saver App. Patrons can then redeem offers directly from the app and do not need a physical card.
Please consider purchasing one or more Major Saver cards this year to help benefit the Plainfield Community Schools Legacy Foundation and the students within the district.
Thank you for your continued support!
