In a show of support to area schools, the Brentwood City Commission distributed $225,000 this week to Brentwood area elementary, middle and high schools.
The check was presented to the principals August 8 at the city commission meeting. The City of Brentwood allocates money for schools and recreational programs every year as a part of its fiscal year budget.
“It is a humbling experience to live and work in a community that puts education first,” said Lipscomb Elementary Principal Michelle Contich. “We are so grateful to the tax payers and the Brentwood City Commission for the generous donations to our schools. This money allows us to provide technology and curriculum materials to enhance and supplement district resources. Brentwood is always visionary about investing in our children, our future.”
This year’s check will be split among the following schools: Brentwood Middle, Brentwood High, Crockett Elementary, Edmondson Elementary, Kenrose Elementary, Lipscomb Elementary, Ravenwood High, Scales Elementary, Sunset Elementary, Sunset Middle and Woodland Middle.
The Brentwood City Commission began donating to Brentwood area WCS schools in 1986 and since that time has donated more than $5.1 million to fund various school programs and improvements.
