Welcome to Brewster Elementary School!

First Friday Family Reading

The Brewster School Reading Department hosts First Friday Family Reading on the First Friday of the month throughout the school year.  Help celebrate literacy with our students. First Friday Family Reading is a program that is typically held monthly throughout the year, with the exception of some months where we have different activities planned. Special friends and family members are invited to come to the school to read a story to a small groups of students. Bring your own book or browse the selection of favorites in the conference room. Parents, siblings, grandparents and family friends are welcome. If you have any questions, please call the school.
  • Sign in at the office. 
  • You can select a favorite book in the conference room. 
  • Readers will be dismissed to the classrooms at 2:50.
  • Please be prompt so that teachers can put the students in small groups for all the classroom readers.
  • There are sign-out sheets available in the classroom if you will be taking your child home after reading.
Thank you for supporting the love of literacy in our school.

PBIS Program

Throughout the year all students at Brewster School will be participating in the PBIS program.  This program is established to teach respect for self, respect for others and respect for the school and to provide acknowledgement for these positive student behaviors.  Students earn Brewster Bucks when caught demonstrating these appropriate behaviors in the classrooms, bathrooms, hallways, cafeteria, and at recess.  At the end of each month, anyone who has accumulated these "bucks"can purchase a reward and a monthly assembly is held to recognize all students who received these rewards.

Stop and Shop A+ Rewards

Brewster School is participating in the Stop and Shop A+ Rewards program. The program runs between October  through March. It is an opportunity to earn cash through the program. Last year we earned over $1,500 to use for student and school-wide activities. If you are registered from last year, you do not have to re-register. If you and your family and friends would like to register, you can do so by going to the Stop and Shop website and look for Saving and Rewards. Look for A+ Rewards  to enter your card number and designate our school. All you have to do is just shop. It works just like earning gas points and it doesn't interfere with any other program. Please join us.

Box Tops For Education

Brewster School participates in the Box Tops For Education program. We have had such great success in the past and we have set our goal high for this year. Information went home about how you can participate. Each box top is worth .10, so send those box tops to school. Send them to school frequently because they DO expire. Members of the community can drop them off at the school or you can drop them in the mail. It's a great way our school can earn money for fun events, activities and supplies for students.
Help us earn our goal this year of $1,500.

Calling All Kindergartners

It’s that time of year again when we are preparing our lists for next year’s incoming kindergartners. Parents of children living in Durham and Middlefield who will be five (5) years old on or before January 1, 2019 must register their child to attend kindergarten in September 2018 or apply for a waiver of attendance. In Regional School District #13, children may attend kindergarten in either the Contemporary Program or the Integrated Day Program. Parents need to choose the appropriate program for their child prior to February 1. School visits and information available at the schools will assist parents in making their choice.

The Contemporary Program serves children in grades K-3 and is housed at Brewster School for grades K-3.  Grade 4 students attend Memorial Middle School. The Integrated Day program serves students in grades K-4 at John Lyman School. While the two programs share many similarities, they also have some distinctive differences that must be considered when deciding which program is best for each child.

If you have a child that is eligible to begin kindergarten, please call either school to make sure you are on the list to receive the December mailing that explains the registration process.
