A Message from Dr. Barkley

Keep up-to-date with the events and accomplishments at Brentwood Middle School, with weekly messages from Dr. Barkley.

What a great time we had this morning celebrating our Veterans in our annual Veterans Day Assemblies! It truly was a privilege to celebrate and honor them for their service and sacrifice for our country. Thank you to all our Veterans that were in attendance, as well as all the families that sent in pictures of family members that served in our armed forces. I especially want to thank our guest speaker, former Brentwood Middle student and Brentwood High Alumnus, Captain Eric Bowen, for sharing his experiences with our students. I was so proud of all our students and teachers that made this assembly possible. A big shout out to Powerhouse, 8th Grade Orchestra, 8th Grade Band, our Studio 8 Artists, and our student speakers. They all did a fantastic job! Thank you again to all our Veterans, and I hope we all spend some time this weekend and on Monday showing our appreciation and gratitude to our Veterans!

We are looking forward to our annual Canned Food Drive coming up next week sponsored by our Student Government Association. We are partnering again this year we will help local pantries and Thanksgiving meals to families in need right here in Middle Tennessee. To add a little competition and fun to the drive, our SGA is organizing some homeroom competitions and the homeroom that brings in the most food in each grade level will win a class breakfast! We look forward to partnering together as a Brentwood Middle Community to make a difference in the lives of families in need right here in our own community. Thank you in advance for partnering with us!

It is hard to believe we only have a couple weeks until Thanksgiving Break! Please encourage your child to remain focused, as I know they will have some important assessments over the next couple weeks. Also, our 2nd Nine Week’s Progress Reports will go live in Skyward Family Access next Friday, November 15th. Please take some time this weekend to review your child’s current progress and encourage them to get any missing assignments or assessments completed and turned in immediately. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if we can support you or your child in any way.

Principal, Dr. Brandon Barkley
