Friends of BSME
Friends of Brentwood Science Magnet Elementary(Friends of BSME) is a dynamic group of committed parents, teachers and community members joined to support BSME. It is a non-profit organization that dedicates all fund-raising proceeds to benefit students. BSME’s music and art instruction, as well as science and computer labs are supported by the funds from BSME. In addition, hundreds of volunteers contribute thousands of hours every year, assisting in such wide ranging activities as school field trips, campus beautification, and the annual Brentwood Science Community Fair.
At BSME, we care about the community. With this aim, the plain asphalt playground at Brentwood Science Magnet Elementary School, located in the heart of Brentwood at Bundy and San Vicente, has been transformed into a beautiful new park open to the community as well as the school.
Thanks to a grant from TreePeople and the Department of Water and Power, the school has already planted eighty-eight new trees on campus.
We are indebted to all the parents and community members who worked so hard to make this dream come true.
Recreation/ Physical Fitness
In partnership with YMCA, BSME offers a week long Splash swimming program to 4th graders as well as PE instructions
Ways to get involved
Our strength is an effective and supportive PTO that fiercely defends school programs and Magnet mission. We have several councils through which parents and teachers can come together to help BSME achieve commanding heights. Samples of such activities:
The School Site Council meets every 2nd Monday of the month. The time for this meeting is 3:00 pm. and we meet in the library. This council makes the decision on how to spend funds and decides on schedules.
The Bilingual/Title 1 Council meets every 1st Tuesday, of the month at 8:30 am. They discuss the needs of the Bilingual and Title 1 child. They make recommendations to the School Site Council.
The Booster Club/Friends of BSME meets every 1st Wednesday of the month at 7:00 pm. This group figures out ways to raise money for the school and pay for the music and art teachers.
