Good Morning, Today at approximately 9:00 am our fire alarm went off unexpectedly. Students and staff evacuated the building and the fire department arrived shortly thereafter.

Thank you to the fire department, our staff, and students for responding quickly and appropriately.

Welcome, Austin Dryer! Austin is our new math teacher on the Jewell Island Team. Here are a few words from Austin: I have been teaching mathematics for the last 5 years at the Maine Academy of Natural Sciences. My previous goal was to work with high school students by guiding them through their academics with self-directed projects. I have worked with students to combine English, science, and social studies while working inside and outside the classroom. From working online, in the greenhouse with aquaponics, and with community members I have always tried to find interesting ways to introduce math concepts with student input. I am very excited to be joining the Brunswick Junior High School teaching staff and looking forward to working with everyone. See you all soon!

We are so excited to welcome Caroline Moore as our new sixth grade science teacher on the Birch Island team! Caroline graduated from Bowdoin College with a B.A. in Biology and her teaching certification in life science. Caroline has taught students in a variety of settings, including the classroom, national park, school garden, and even meeting with students on ferries. For several years, Caroline worked with students from Maine's islands as they navigated the college process. Most recently, she taught middle school math and science in Lincolnville. In her free time, Caroline loves exploring outside in any and all ways, and is looking forward to exploring new trails and swimming spots in the Brunswick area.
Incoming 6th Grade Students: we are excited to say that your team assignment letters are in the mail! Schedules will be accessible via PowerSchool later this month. If you have a question regarding which team your student is on, please call the main office at 319-1930.
