January 2017; Happy New Year!

Friday, January 20th is our FIRST 2017 bike/walk to school that is scheduled.

(Weather, temperatures and sidewalk safety permitting.)

*There is a 10 degree cut-off for the Brunswick School department; what does that mean? It must feel like 10 degrees out in order to go outside for recess and/or hold bike/walk.

 

Please join us as we have some fun. We will turn our buses into walking buses and/or bike from home. Volunteers, come meet and greet our students while walking and fulfilling your new year’s resolution.

Square 1 Art

art-paletteThe Square 1 Art products that were ordered online and all paper orders will be shipped to the school and will arrive December 5th. I will store all the art orders in the art room (room #128) until Friday December 9 so that you may pick up the orders in person if you desire. On Friday afternoon December 9, I will send home all the art orders with the students. Please know that the objects are carefully packaged with student backpacks in mind.

Thank you for participating in the Square 1 Art fundraiser! By preserving your child’s art on memorable keepsakes, you have helped contribute to both the school and your child’s self-esteem. Thank you for your support!

Throughout the year, if you need to order more keepsakes-for special occasion holidays or those hard-to-buy-for family members simply go to square1art.com/shop, enter the art access code from your catalog, and select the art and item wanted. HBS school will benefit financially from orders all year long!

Thanks again!
Emily Moll and Amy Crosby
