Spring Recess - Mascot Survey Phase III

Dear Brentwood Families, Students, and Staff,
As we eagerly anticipate the arrival of Spring Recess, I hope this message finds you all in good spirits and looking forward to some well-deserved time off. This break provides us all with a valuable opportunity to pause, unwind, and replenish our energy for the exciting journey that lies ahead.  I encourage everyone to embrace the opportunity to rest, relax, and spend some time with family and friends.
On another note, I am thrilled to share the exciting results of our highly anticipated Mascot Survey! We received an overwhelming response, with a total of 9,258 votes cast, including 3,123 from our community members and 6,135 from our enthusiastic students. I am delighted to announce that the Spartans emerged as the clear favorite, receiving an impressive 2,079 votes. As we transition to Phase III of this process, please find attached to this email the guidelines for participating in our Mascot Logo Contest. We eagerly await submissions from both students and community members, as we work together to determine our new mascot design.
Furthermore, I am pleased to inform you that the entire community will receive a postcard in the mail containing all pertinent information regarding the mascot selection process.
Wishing you all a restful and rejuvenating Spring Recess filled with warmth, laughter, and cherished moments.
Wanda Ortiz-Rivera
