Junior Girls Soccer

The Junior Girls Soccer team’s season sadly came to an end on May 1st. Right from the beginning, the girls worked hard.

Final Projects in Writing 12

May 07, '18

Mr. Collis’ Writing 12 is the worst attended class at Brentwood. It has the lowest enrolment rate. Students never show up to class. They submit their homework a month after it was assigned.
