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
