Calling All Kindergartners for 2015-2016

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, 2016 must register their child to attend kindergarten in September 2015 or apply for a waiver of attendance. In Regional 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 kindergarten registration.  School visits and information available at the schools will assist parents in making their choice.
 
The Contemporary Program serves children in grades K-4 and is housed at Brewster School for grades K-2 and at Korn School for grades 3 and 4. 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.

Community Service

Brewster School and Korn School are collecting toys for the Albert Solnit Hospital in Middletown, Connecticut. Brewster School's families are very generous when it comes to giving to those less fortunate. The students are enjoying going classroom to classroom collecting the toys and watching the pile grow.
 
Thank you Brewster students and your families for your participation in the toy drive.

Brewster Celebrates Veteran's Day

Ryan Parmelee, a  former CRHS graduate and father of two of Brewster students, visited Brewster to share his experiences as an Army medic. Thank you for your service, Mr. Parmelee and for taking time out of your schedule to share your experiences with our students.
 

Brewster would like to thank all veteran's for their service to our country.

 

Senior Citizens Visit Brewster

The Senior Citizens enjoyed a morning of technology education from our students at Brewster School. The seniors were invited to observe how the children use technology in the classroom, computer lab, and library. The students showed their proficiency on the SmartBoard, Chromebooks, iPads and the computers in the computer lab.
 
After their morning session, the seniors enjoyed having lunch in the cafeteria with the kindergarten students. Thank you to Dr. Veronesi for inviting the seniors to our school. We hope that they will come back and see us again soon.
 

Brewster Shows Support

On October 22, the Brewster Staff participated in Breast Cancer Awareness month by having pink hair extensions placed in their hair by a local salon expert who came during lunchtime. The $10 donation for each extension went directly to Breast Cancer Awareness. Here are some of the highlights from lunchtime. Thank you to Heather, owner of Exquisite Hairstyles in Middletown, for coming to Brewster!!!
