Physical Educator, Lynn D’Agostino Receives Award

For several years the Brunswick School Department has been participating in Walk/Bike to School Days to encourage students to keep active and create a culture where these activities are the norm.  Students and staff at Harriet Beecher Stowe School have participated in this event since opening in 2011.  Our school is one of only two schools in the state who walk/bike to school throughout the entire year.  In addition, we are the largest elementary school to take part in this wellness activity.

On February 6, 2015 Physical Educator Lynn D’Agostino was awarded the Harry Faust Leadership Award at the Bike Coalition of Maine’s annual meeting for her extraordinary efforts in coordinating monthly Walk/Bike to School Days.  We are all proud of Ms. D’Agostino and all she has done to bring this initiative to our school.

Oral Health Access Program

In school oral health care is available to students who do not have a dental home and have barriers to obtaining dental care outside of the school environment.

Harriet Beecher Stowe School 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 and arrangements for further evaluation and treatment will be made. The care provided does not include an evaluation by a dentist.

If you are interested in this program please contact the Linda Morris, RN, School Nurse by Monday, January 19, 2015
