Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! This year promises to be an excellent year at Brewster School.
Brewster School houses students in
kindergarten through grade three. It is a comprehensive educational
program that addresses the needs of the "whole child". Cognitive,
language, social/emotional, and motor skills are addressed in every
classroom. Our goal is to develop self-reliant lifelong learners who
excel when working independently as well as with peers in cooperative
settings. The Core Ethical Values of respect, responsibility, honesty,
kindness and courage are emphasized every day at Brewster School.
Students are expected to demonstrate these values at all times. Students
complete a number of community service projects to assist others in
The teachers at Brewster are both instructors and facilitators
who use a multitude of instructional methods to guide and direct their
students to achieve curricular goals and objectives. Curriculum and
teaching strategies are differentiated to meet the learning styles and
differing abilities of all our students. Students are actively engaged
throughout the learning process. Exciting materials, new programs and
updated technology support instruction. Key components of the curriculum
are language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, health, art,
music, instrumental music and physical education. Library/media skills,
critical and creative thinking skills, problem-solving skills, and
technology skills are applied across all curricular areas. Cultural arts
programs are provided to enhance the curriculum. Assessment of each
child's academic progress is ongoing and consistent. Individual teachers
use a variety of formal and informal assessment measures on a regular
basis to provide an ongoing picture of each student's progress.
We believe that the needs of the "whole child"
are best met when there is a positive partnership between home and
school. Parents/guardians are an integral part of Brewster School.
Students are more successful when parents actively participate in their
child's education. Brewster strongly encourages parents
and family members to volunteer in our schools. There are numerous ways
parents can assist us and make a difference. Parents, members of the
Brewster Parent Teacher Organization (BPTO) and staff members work
in partnership to ensure the success of every student.
Brewster Elementary School holds much excitement for our students,
parents, faculty and staff. Our commitment is to prepare students for
