Congratulations to Cathy Normand - Our most recent Schootles Award Winner! Cathy was nominated by a parent who said in part: My two kids, Kindergarten and 6th grade, ride Ms. Cathy's bus. She is the beacon of light in my day and ALWAYS brings a smile to my kids' faces, even when they're tired and grumpy. She is so patient and kind, and I have no idea how she remembers every single kid's name, including our 2-year-old's (who obviously doesn't ride the bus!). Lastly, thanks so much for implementing the BusRight app. It is awesome! Let's kick up the likes and give Ms. Cathy the recognition she deserves! #teambrunswickme

On this episode of the Brunswick Buzz, Phil speaks with Maddie Chaput, Jonas McGrath, and Garrett Countway, seniors at Brunswick High School.  Each is exploring career exploration and extended learning opportunities with Ms. Myers and Mr. Wilson.  Listen and learn how a student engages with engineers from Wright-Pierce, Sitelines, Reed, and Reed, exploring various engineering careers.  Learn how students work with Science Department Head Andrew McCullough to see if there is a relationship between the substrate (bottom of the ocean material), the number of green crabs, and the size/sex/coloration of green crabs. #teambrunswickme  https://www.podbean.com/ep/pb-t35uq-152cc86

Brunswick students who participated in a 12-week residency with the @thetellingroom received their published book Clearly, There Is Something Wrong. Our students wrote short stories and poems as part of the collection! The Telling Room is a local organization that works to empower youth through writing and sharing their voices with the world. As a literary arts education organization, they work with young writers ages 6 to 18, helping to build confidence, strengthen literacy skills, and provide real audiences for our students. #teambrunswickme #studentpoetry #maineliterature #brunswickmaine #ourstories #thetellingroom

October 26, 2023 6:00 PM Dear Staff, Parents, and Students: Once again, our nation and now our beloved State of Maine are mourning after another senseless and tragic mass shooting. Never, never, in my lifetime did I believe this could ever happen in Maine, yet here we are. My thoughts go out to the individuals who've lost their lives, the victims still in critical care, their families, first responders, and everyone affected by this atrocious act of violence. Many in Brunswick are personally affected by this tragedy and are mourning the loss of friends and family. ​ My thoughts go out to them, and I also​ recognize that many of our staff members are residents of the Lewiston and Lisbon areas. My highest priority was and remains our Brunswick students' and staff's safety and security. Today, I met several times with members of our District Crisis Response Team. I have also communicated numerous times with Brunswick Chief of Police Stewart and area school superintendents. Due to the devastating impact this event has had on our staff, students, and families, as well as our community's safety, I decided to close school for students and all staff again on Friday, October 27. On Monday, October 30, the Brunswick School Department will have a two (2) hour delay of school. This additional time will allow our staff to carefully prepare for conversations with our students and how we can best support them during this difficult time. Just to remind you, there are resources for families located here. I hope they are helpful to you. Thank you in advance for working with us to support our students and staff during this horrible tragedy. Sincerely, Superintendent Potenziano

We are pleased to share that we have a new way to update all the required information that the school asks for each year! This entire process is now paperless and it happens in Powerschool. You will no longer receive the large packet of papers on the first day of school! We are starting this new process early in hopes to get student information current before school starts. ​ ​ To view the update from our Technology Department: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1tQNnVx52s5iMVqgG2LveNEQVswA76z_ThUGvIx_HL_A/edit?usp=sharing
