Coding with Sphero Indis Robots The students in Ms. Parker's Harriet Beecher Stowe School class earned a party day by earning pom poms to add to their jar. It’s been a big hit so far! They earn pom poms by being safe, respectful, and responsible. Part of their special day included Sphero Indi robot cars. These awesome cars are like magic—they follow codes when they roll over different colored tiles! We had a big challenge: figure out what each color makes the car do and then make a special design to guide the car. It was like a colorful puzzle! We worked together to crack the code and create awesome paths for our robot friends. It was so much fun, and we felt like real engineers! #SpheroFun #RobotAdventures #teambrunswickme
In Mrs. Wilson's (Harriet Beecher Stowe School) bustling third-grade classroom, students extend their learning beyond textbooks. They craft "Joy Cards" with the sentiment "You bring joy to HBS." These small tokens of positivity are created during their choice time. These heartfelt gestures, distributed throughout the entire school to all children and adults, create a harmonious atmosphere where kindness becomes a lesson learned outside the conventional curriculum. #teambrunswickme #joycards #studentwriting #brunswickmaine #liveworkmaine

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

Information on resources for supporting students and adults in the face of this tragedy will be shared by email later this morning. Sincerely, Superintendent Potenziano
