(2) Dr. Stine congratulated Mrs. Billig, her team and the students on a great job tonight. He also attended the CSBA conference and will be sharing out with the district staff. Merry Christmas. (3) Dr. Elder congratulated Brentwood on the great job. He noted that he is a former Brentwood parent. He thanked classified for keeping our schools clean and the equipment running. He closed by wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. (4) Allen Williams thanked the parents for coming tonight. It was nice to hear the song "Happy Trails". Roy and Dale were such a big part of our community. It was nice to see that there were two boys on the cheer team. His son also was on a cheer team in high school and said it was the best thing he ever did. So he encourages them to break the stereotypes and stick with it through school.
