The BHS and BJHS bands did marching tour and put on a show for our HBS students. It was nice to see some familiar faces though they seem so much older now. Click link for short video: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Tmaw_8QnaMU7Vl_j8hdHH0xpu2MY9CP6/view?usp=sharing

Employee Spotlight Connor Lynch, Social Studies Teacher, Brunswick High School Connor grew up in the Brunswick area and is proud to be from the midcoast region. He attended the University of Maine at Farmington. What makes you proud to work in Brunswick? The students, faculty, and community have been my rock of motivation and learning. There is nothing sweeter than a coastal town full of kind, understanding, and supportive individuals. What do you like to do outside of work for fun? I enjoy antiquing, historical road trips in the countryside, reading, music, and video games. Favorite line from a movie? “Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government! Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony!” -Monty Python and the Holy Grail If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet? Hard question for a history teacher. But my love remains for the Beatles, so Paul McCartney. It would be fun to have a conversation with Voltaire too. What is something you learned in the last week? Never get involved in a land war in Asia. #teambrunswickme

Did you know about 1 million passwords are compromised a week? To prevent this, experts recommend creating a passphrase! So what exactly is a passphrase? It is a sentence-like string of words that is longer than a traditional password, easy to remember and difficult to crack.

Have you seen an increase in sensationalized headlines? That’s Clickbait, a post that is designed to get attention, even if the article is fake/misleading. Here’s a simple way to avoid: if it tells you how to feel instead of letting you come up with your own reaction, don’t click!

This year we made a shift to provide beginner band during the school day rather than before school. Just by being more equitable and inclusive our enrollment went from approximately 60 students to 134 students. Kudos to our HBS staff for making it happen! #teambrunswickme
