Big picture

Ms. Aitken will retire this June ~

After 36 years in the district and 33 years as a classroom teacher at Brewster-Pierce,

Barb Aitken, 4th grade teacher, has decided to retire in June.

Barb has made a tremendous impact on the lives of hundreds of students over her career.

Her love of inquiry, science, social studies and math is evident in the learning in her classroom every day; Barb is the master of integrating content.

Her dedication and commitment to her students

and the BPMS community is obvious in all that she does.

Barb's infectious laugh and willingness to try just about anything,

along with her incredible teaching will be missed!

We cannot think of a more deserving person to move on from her teaching career

to the many adventures that lie ahead!

Seeking Girls On the Run Volunteer Coaches :)

Believe in the power of girls! Girls on the Run is an impactful and inclusive program that inspires elementary school girls to know their worth. When you coach a Girls on the Run team, you’re helping 3rd–5th grade girls find their voices and stand strong in their power. You teaching girls to advocate for themselves and others makes an entire community stronger! As a coach for Girls on the Run Vermont (GOTRVT), you will have all the tools you need to make a lasting impact. You'll have training, easy-to-follow lesson plans, supplies and support from GOTRVT for a transformational season.

Girls on the Run Vermont’s spring season begins the week of March 28 and is an 8-week program. Our Girls on the Run team will meet twice a week for 90 minutes at Brewster-Pierce Memorial School.
