Tickets to this Friday’s (November 8, 2019) football play-off game, BHS vs McGavock will be $8. You can purchase tickets online at the Brentwood Bruins Go Fan site or at the gate Friday night. We are unable to accept Athletic Passes at play-off games so no Athletic Passes will be accepted at this game.

Each week, athletes are nominated in each “in season” sport for their athletic achievement. Congrats to our Athletes of the Week for November 4, 2019.

Ever had a thought that you could make Brentwood High Athletics better? Now is your chance! The Brentwood High Athletic Bruins Club, the booster club for all the school’s athletic needs, is looking for parent officers for next year. If you are at all interested, please contact Melissa Gerlach. We can get you more information as we really do need great parents to continue the great athletic programs we have at Brentwood High.

We are very excited that our Girls Soccer team has qualified for the State Soccer Tournament in Murfreesboro. If students are interested in attending the tournament, they will need to return the field trip permission form signed by their parent and must be passing all of their classes. Return the form to Student Services on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 by 3:00 PM.

Students must check in each game with the game administrator to be excused for the games on Wednesday, November 6, 2019. The first game is at 1:30 PM (dismiss after 4th period, 11:13 AM). This absence is considered a field trip if the permission form is signed and returned, student checks in each game with the administrator, and is passing all classes.

Each week, the TV & Film students look forward to showcasing their videoing, editing, and interviewing skills through film production.  Stay tuned for programming of games, plays, and more from all around Brentwood.

Due to new website guidelines, there are two changes to the BHS website this year:

  • No student-created club or athletic club information can be posted.
  • For safety reasons, specific date, time, and location information can only be posted for public events or approved school fundraisers.  School-sponsored club meeting time and location information will not be posted online.

Intercom midday announcements can still be made containing club information and event details, but it cannot be posted online.  Because of these changes, it is very important that students listen to the midday announcements to receive important school and club information.  Please encourage your student to listen carefully to the midday announcements.
