The Interact Club, led by President Joyelle Webster, planted a tree at BHS to commemorate the Brunswick community coming together during this pandemic year. The Tree of Hope symbolizes the renewal of life and the brighter days ahead of us.
BHS Photography 2 students in Mrs. Driscoll's classes have work on display in a window exhibit at the Merrymeeting Plaza, hosted by Brunswick Public Art at 147 Bath Road in Brunswick (next to Peppers Landing). An outdoor reception is planned for June 25th, 7:00 PM to recognize the students.

Today the BSD School Board thanked all of BSD employees with a thank you breakfast. Dear Brunswick School District Staff: We would like to take this opportunity to thank each one of you for all for the incredible work you did before and throughout the 2020-2021 school year to help our students, families, and one another adapt, learn, and continue to grow as a community, despite the many challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. The challenges of the past year were unprecedented and have resulted in many, many hours of work beyond a typical school year. Each day required a level of flexibility, creativity, and adaptation that none of us could have imagined prior to the pandemic. We are proud and honored to serve such an amazing school community, and we are so grateful for all you have done over the past 16 months to keep our students safe, engaged in learning, happy, and well nourished, amidst constant challenges, changes, and uncertainty about the future. We know that there were many hard days and that you still showed up for our students. Today’s thank-you breakfast is a small token of our deep appreciation for all of your hard work, as we join you in celebrating the beginning of the final week of the 2020-2021 school year. Please know that your exceptional commitment to our district and students never went unnoticed. You made it through!! We wish you all a safe and restful summer, and we are grateful for the work many of you have put into preparing summer engagement opportunities for students at each grade level. We are looking forward to a 2021-2022 school year that will provide us with many more opportunities to gather and celebrate together in person, and hopefully, a return to easier days. In gratitude, The Brunswick School Board

At 6:00 am yesterday morning, school bus driver Cliff Chase from Maine Association for Pupil Transportation and BSD Transportation Director, Michelle Caron set up the Maine Association for Pupil Transportation Skills Competition Course. Usually, every April vacation at MAPT Regionals Safety Conference the school bus drivers compete on this course against other school bus drivers throughout the State of Maine. The top 3 winners compete later in the year at the MAPT Annual Safety Conference and the winner from the Annual Conference represents the State of Maine and competes on a national level at NAPT. The school bus drivers have not been able to compete in over a year due to COVID19. But they organized their own event this week and the BSD had the 3 top winners - 1st Place Rick Ryan 2nd Place David Arnold 3rd Place Mike Factor BSD School Bus Drivers had a blast competing against each other. I’m told there was a ton of light-hearted competition and they learned how well their driving skills contended against each other.
Mrs. Thayer's 5th-grade class has taken on the duty of cleaning up and replanting the gardens in front of HBS.
