"My favorite things about this school are the teachers and my friends who go here. They are special because it's fun to be with everyone." - CCES student Anvesha Tiwari
"My favorite thing about CCES is our students. Clovercroft kids are the best. They are kind, caring and friendly. They love our school; they love to read; and they love learning." - CCES librarian Mackenzie Skiles
"I like the teachers at Brentwood. They're really nice." - BMS student Knox Rogers
"Brentwood Middle is a truly special place because of the energy and joy teachers, students, administrators and parents bring to the classrooms, hallways, athletic events and special events. Everyone works together each and every year to make our school successful." - BMS teacher Hayley Sells
Clovercroft Elementary students traveled back in time Friday, October 21, to celebrate the 50th day of school.
Students donned their poodle skirts and rolled-up blue jeans in honor of the milestone. Some classes even got to enjoy a classic Coke float during the day.
"We're dressed up like people from the '50s to celebrate how long we've been in school," said CCES first grader Margot Buser. "I also made some things at home to celebrate, and it's been fun."
Despite a change of scenery due to construction, Brentwood Middle's annual BMS Bash had hundreds of students gathered in front of the building for a fun evening.
On Wednesday, October 19, students had the opportunity to enjoy inflatables, carnival games, basketball, a cake walk and more. At the end of the evening, eighth graders took part in a color war to finish off the event.
"This has been a tradition for about seven or eight years," said BMS Principal Dr. Bill Harlin. "This is just a fair for our students, and it's a chance for them to have fun, hang out with their friends and enjoy some good food. They're having a great time today."
