This week out students were happy to see each other and spend some time together outside for a motor breaks.
Here's our sixth grade band playing together for the first time outside in our courtyard tent. Sixth graders learning remotely are tuned in from home, and sixth graders in person are playing music for the entire neighborhood to hear! #teambrunswickme
We are so ready for our students to return to 4-days a week in-person instruction. I'm hopeful that I can post an update later today with specifics. #teambrunswickme #safety-first.
Today the BSD was forced due to COVID-19 into remote instruction. Our staff rose to the occasion! Here are some of our Superstar 5th Grade teachers, Marc Mazerolle, Lou Sullivan, and Maria Palopoli. They were able to switch gears and teach remotely.
First grade students collected trash from the Kate Furbish School playgrounds today. They’d like to remind people to not litter....especially where children play!
Mrs. Novak’ third grade class share their Arts Are Elementary Haiku poem art projects.

I ended yesterday with visiting a couple of BHS practices. I missed seeing student athletes. Here’s to a return to High School sports.
Students in Jess Marion's Preparatory Biology class built candy models of DNA Proteins using gumdrops for the 4 nucleotide bases & Twizzlers for the sugar-phosphate backbone. Remote-only students had alternative options-No candy was harmed during the project. #teambrunswickme

Staff has worked hard to integrate students back to school, I thought I'd share one such example of their ingenuity-Mrs. Kaiser gave a before-school tour to her Cohort B students. Thursday will be their first Kindergarten day of in-person learning at KFS! #teambrunswickme
BJHS 7th grade teams (GDI & Jewell) designed an origami activity (where students make origami cranes) to spread peace and happiness! Each 7th-grade pod was given origami paper & each student was able to create an origami crane. The cranes now hang in the 7th-grade hallway!
190,159-Wanna guess what this number is? Its how many nutritious meals BSD nutrition staff have made & distributed to students since the start of the pandemic. Thank you to our awesome nutrition services team, bus drivers, & other staff members who have helped with this effort!
