Attendance Awareness Month


This month at BJHS is attendance awareness  month. We know that kids are most successful when they are engaged in school everyday.

Below are some tips to help you and your child start off another great school year!

      • Talk about the importance of showing up to school everyday
    • Help your child establish/maintain daily routines
    • Try not to schedule medical/dental appointments in the middle of the day
    • Don’t let your child stay home unless they are really sick. Headaches or stomaches could be signs of anxiety
    • Find out if your child is engaged and feels safe at school
  • Stay on top of academic progress and seek help from teachers/tutors if needed
  • Stay on top of your student’s social contacts
  • Encourage meaningful after school activities, such as sports and/or clubs
  • Know our school’s attendance policies
  • Talk to your student’s teachers or advisors if you notice changes in behavior
  • Check on your child’s attendance to make sure absences aren’t adding up
  • Ask for help from school officials, community organizations, after school programs, or other parents if you’re having trouble getting your child to school

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.
