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. Cleaning supplies in a closet triggered a sensor in a cafeteria. The fire department cleared the building and students are now back in classes according to our regular schedule. 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!
