Dental care opportunity for Coffin students

 Brunswick Schools Oral Health Access Prgram: In school oral health care is available to Coffin students who do not have a dental home and have barriers to obtaining dental care outside of the school environment. Brunswick School Department has partnered with Coastal Maine Pediatric Dentistry to help ensure that all students have access to good oral health and dental care. All services are provided by caring licensed dental professionals. Each child will receive a prophylaxis (dental cleaning) and fluoride treatment from a Licensed Dental Hygienist. Dental sealants will be placed if appropriate. In the event that other dental concerns are identified, recommendations/arrangements for further evaluation and treatment will be made. The care provided does not include an evaluation by a dentist. Children who have a current dental home cannot be seen. If you are interested in having your child participate in this program please contact Coffin School Nurse, Janet Rivard at jrivard@brunswick.k12.me.us or 319-1957 for a registration packet.

Community For Coffin

Community for Coffin (CFC) is the “PTO” or parent-teacher-community group at Coffin School. Our mission is to support and enhance the educational opportunities at our school while fostering a strong sense of community for Brunswick’s youngest students and their families.

Last year CFC provided weekly teacher prep (Helping Hands), teacher and staff appreciation events, a Read-a-Thon fundraiser, a healthy morning Snack Shack, a family Harvest Festival, the All Elementary School Craft Fair with HBS, two Scholastic Book Fairs, a family movie night, Poem in Your Pocket Day, a Sea Dogs baseball game, school garden tending, a year end cookout, and much more. We contributed to our greater community through a holiday donation drive for Tedford Housing and a coin drive to support Mid Coast Hospital’s Teddy Bear Club.
