Rock Your Socks Fundraiser! Now until Friday, March 26, the Brunswick High Music Department will be selling something everyone needs: socks! For every pack sold, one pair will be donated to The Gathering Place here in Brunswick! To purchase go to this link. The Gathering Place was founded in Brunswick, Maine in 2010 to give daytime shelter, friendship and hope to the materially poor or homeless. On its first day, The Gathering Place received 7 guests. Now on a typical day, they warmly welcome between 80 and 100 guests. In the nine years that we have been open, they have been visited over 175,000 times.

If you see Schooltles on the dash, be sure to ask the driver what they did to earn Schooltles. Simply ask, "Hey, you got Schooltles. What did you do?"

A Purple Conversation BHS Social Studies Teacher Mike Misner recently had his students screen the film Purple. Designed to build greater empathy and recognition in the face of deepening U.S. divides the short film PURPLE models a rare conversation that uplifts and inspires even while going toward the heat of passionate political differences. In a time of immense division, PURPLE tells everyday Americans' story with opposing viewpoints confronting their disagreements head-on and discovering the humanity and concerns that lie behind each other’s positions.
