Chromebook Distribution for Grades 5 and 6
In the coming weeks, the district will be providing students Chromebooks to be used in and outside of school. This is a one to one initiative to make sure every student has access to the latest technology to be successful in their academics. This device will follow the students through their time here at Brennan, so please take care if these devices!
In order to get a new district issued Chromebook, every loaner will come back into the building on the day of distribution. You will need to bring the charger as well. We will not issue a Chromebook until the loaner/the one we issued earlier in the year, had been returned.
7th and 8th grade distribution TBD, however we will aim for the window between 1/13 and 1/22.
PRESS RELEASE: Flu Clinic
For immediate release:
Annual flu vaccination is highly recommended throughout the season as a protective factor. Other measures, such as good hand washing, proper cough etiquette and staying home when ill, are also crucial in preventing disease spread.
Brennan will be collecting items to support Murray Unitarian Church

Looking for Winter Activities?
SMARTS Collaborative will be hosting a virtual version of Investigation Design which has been an after-school club held in Attleboro elementary schools since 2017. The other program is a new program for students in grades 4-8 called Design a Dream House which is an architecture based program taught by Jan Ham who is the executive director and master teacher of Children’s Design Studio.
Both programs will be held virtually and SMARTS will be providing supplies.
Information flyers below.
Students will log into Follett Destiny (Destiny Discover) with the same username they use for Aspen. The password is the student id number on their badge should the student wish to check out a book.
