Fund-Raising Project – Support Public Education

Superintendent Paul Perzanoski has announced a fund-raising project for the Brunswick School Department. In an effort to raise funds for the development of summer programs for students, the School Department is selling hooded sweatshirts, long-sleeve t-shirts, and t-shirts with the phrase “Support Public Education” on the front and back of the garment. Naturally, the clothes are black with orange lettering, the colors of the Brunswick High School Dragons.

Order forms are on all school and district websites and social media and also available at the Central office of the district which is Hawthorne School, 46 Federal Street. If you happen to see an older man out on the streets of Brunswick running or walking with the above mentioned garments on, it’s just Mr. Perzanoski supporting the cause.

Please join us in our support of public education.

In the event of winter storms…

January 4, 2016

Dear Brunswick Students and Families,

In the event that a winter storm threatens safe travel to and/or from school, cancellations will be posted on our website and Facebook / Twitter accounts. You will also be able to receive information about storm closings in the following ways:  – SchoolMessenger – This service will make an automated phone call to the numbers you provided on enrollment forms.
– On WCSH, WMTW, WGME, and NECN television stations (some of these stations can also offer you an automatic text message).
– Local radio stations

Please know that I will never make the decision to cancel school lightly, and that I do recognize the logistical hardships this can cause. In order to make the most informed decision, our district works directly with Russ Murley at PrecisionWeather. I will also be conferring with MSAD 75 and RSU 5, since we share the Region 10 Technical High School.

Happy New Year,

Pender Makin
Assistant Superintendent of Schools
Brunswick School Department
