Press Release
03/25/2015

The Brunswick Police Department is investigating a report that an unknown male subject may have attempted to lure an 11 year old female into his vehicle in the area of Spring Street and the Harriet Beecher Stowe School.  The incident occurred at approximately 1:30 this afternoon, and the male subject was described as a white male, possibly in his 20’s or 30’s, with curly blonde hair and a beard, driving a white car.  The subject reportedly drove slowly behind, and then next, to the female juvenile and attempted to make conversation before asking her to come closer to his vehicle.  The juvenile declined to approach the vehicle and returned home without incident.  There are currently no charges pending in this investigation.  The incident raises obvious concern in the community, and the Brunswick Police Department is asking anyone who may have witnessed the interaction, or has any other information on this incident, to contact us at 725-5521.   Thank you.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hike the Appalachian Trail? Come see Paul Sullivan, BHS Class of 2011, give a presentation on his 2,000 mile-long journey walking along the Appalachian Trail. Paul took a year off in between graduating from BHS and enrolling in Bowdoin College so that he could work, travel, and gain life experiences not offered in school. Five of those months, starting in March and finishing in August, were spent hiking from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Mt. Katahdin, Maine. Along the way he got to meet a wide variety of people, see a huge chunk of America’s natural beauty, sleep out under the stars every night, trip over a lot of roots and rocks, and eat as much junk food as he wanted.

On Thursday, April 2nd at 2:20 in the Multi-Purpose Room Paul will show photos from his hike, tell some of his stories, and explain how he benefitted from a gap year. Whether or not the experience of hiking on the Appalachian Trail interests you, come check out this presentation and learn about the awesome experiences a gap year has to offer!

Today’s Dragon Special in the Cafeteria is Roast Pork Quesadillas, Mexican Brown Rice & Corn with a Choice of Fruit, Vegetable or Side Salad.

SAT-Smarter Balance 2015 Information

SAT4
Optional SAT:
Offered to all 11th grade students at no cost on Wednesday, April 15
.

The SAT is no longer the test mandated by the State of Maine to assess student performance. The College Board, however, is offering the SAT to all interested juniors at no cost to them. The SAT will be administered on Wednesday, April 15 at the high School, and we encourage all 11th grade students to take advantage of this opportunity.   Students will be asked to indicate their interest in taking the SAT through their English classes and registration will take place later this winter at the high school. Details on the testing day will be forthcoming.

Other options? We have limited availability of a different assessment which is used by the Maine Community Colleges as well as a number of technical schools. This assessment, the Accuplacer will also be available on a first come, first serve basis, in place of the SAT. Again, information about this option will be provided to juniors in their English classes.

Other options? Students who do not choose to take either the SAT or the Accuplacer will attend classes as usual.
