There will be a proficiency based diploma public forum for all Coffin School parents on Tuesday, April 14th, at 6:30 p.m. in the Coffin School Cafeteria.
The Brunswick School Department’s Communications Committee will introduce and outline some of the key components involved with this process. Areas reviewed will be some of the expectations, Philosophy/Vision Statement of the Brunswick Public Schools, Timeline Plan, Graduation Policy and key educational terms used around proficiency based learning.
Principal Steve Ciembroniewicz and teachers will talk about what foundational areas are being examined at the Coffin School. This is the first in a series of periodic public forums at each school.

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.

Please remember that “spring” weather continues to be snowy and wet. Children should come to school dressed appropriately for outside play with hats, mittens, warm coats, snow pants and boots.
In addition, for that occasional bathroom accident, lunchroom spill or fall in the mud — each student should have a complete change of clothing.
The nurse welcomes clothing donations, such as NEW socks, underwear, and gently used sweatpants or sweatshirts. Thank you.
