The bell has been restored! Thanks to Eagle Scout candidate Elvin Amadeo, and with the cooperation and support of the Brentwood School District, the Second School House Bell has found a permanent home on the northwest corner of the Felicio Administration Building. Please stop by and visit when you have a chance. Hopefully, the octagonal school house is next!!
