Help Alleviate School Nutrition Debt
The Brunswick School Department is looking to alleviate school nutrition debt for families in our community. Prior to the pandemic, families in the Brunswick community had accumulated $7,000 in debt from unpaid lunch bills. We would like to relieve the stress from those families and take care of the payment for them. This is where we need your help! We're looking to not only fundraise for the $7,000 owed to the school nutrition program, but we would like to keep the fundraising going and provide cold milk for all students throughout the remainder of the school year.
The Maine Department of Education has funded free school lunches to all students throughout the 2022-2023 school year. However, what is not funded is cold milk for those students that choose to bring their lunches from home. We would like to have cold milk equally accessible to all students, and with your support, we could make this a reality for the Brunswick community.

Every little bit helps and goes directly to help families in our community.
We appreciate your support.

What makes you proud to work in Brunswick? #BSDProud
It has been a joy getting to know my new colleagues here at BSD. They are wonderfully supportive, kind, and dedicated. It is special to be welcomed into such a great team where every teacher is able to shine! I'm writing this before meeting any of the students, but I've heard they are pretty special, too.
What do you like to do outside of work for fun?
I love to backpack, hike and run with my dog, find swimming holes to jump into, practice and teach yoga, craft, cook, and write letters to friends and family.
Favorite line from a movie?
