Principal’s Message June 2015
From the Brentano Local School Council:
Dear Parents and Supporters of Brentano,
Seth Lavin was selected by the LSC, June 5, to be the next principal of Brentano. He brings to Brentano a love for the school, the community, staff, students and parents. We wish him great success in his new position.
Brentano has 2 interim principals - Ms. Bushbacher and Dr. Taylor- who are leading the school as the LSC selects a new contract principal. Ms. Bushbacher is a retired CPS principal and Dr. Taylor is an active principal and both are doing a wonderful job in their position. The principals report that the school is running very smoothly, which is a tribute to our highly capable teachers and staff.
Many thanks to Mr. Harlan for writing and winning the After School All-Stars grant program, which will fund after hours sports, tutoring and activities for our kids!
The Local School Council meets every second Friday of the Month at 6pm. We hope to see you there!
