Hello, Brentwood!  I’m the LRC teacher, Mrs. Sullivan.  I work with students in grades K-5 as part of their specials rotation.  This year is my third year in the LRC, and we are having so much fun!  We will be doing so many things during our time together: learning to use technology safely and responsibility, developing our love of reading, learning how to research with multiple tools, and exploring STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) projects and experiences.  It is my hope that every student loves to come to the LRC and that what we do during our short time together will help students become life-long learners, thinkers, dreamers and creators.  I can’t wait to see where the year takes us!

LRC HAPPENINGS: TOM WATSON VISITS BRENTWOOD!

Thanks to our generous PTO, we were able to bring author Tom Watson to Brentwood for two assemblies and Family Reading Night!  It was a real treat as we learned about how he became an author, and gave him ideas for his next Stick Dog book.  He even taught us how to draw all of the book characters!
