We are here to do good things for our students, our coworkers, and our community.
We represent qualities such as love, hope, kindness, respect, and responsibility.
Our culture mirrors those attributes. Let’s continue to make our school the best place to work and learn where everyone is inspired to be the best they can be. What we do, we do well.
Let’s keep the courage to shape a bright future for our students.

5th Grade Farewell Ceremony
Dear 5th Grade Parents,
Our 5th grade celebration will take place on June 9th, in the gym & cafeteria. The doors will open at 8:45am with our ceremony to begin at 9:00 am. We will set out as many chairs that we have to try and accommodate 4 guests per student. We will welcome our guests through the gym entrance, to the right of our main entry as you face our school. We will have pre-school students arriving at this time at the front of the school, so please be aware of using appropriate parking areas and being mindful to look for pedestrians in our crosswalks.
Below are a few reminders for the special event:
· Parking is limited and will be full at arrival; however, by 8:30 it clears out significantly.
· Students may “dress to impress” and may bring clothes to change into after the ceremony if necessary, but student comfort is priority to celebrate their year!
· June 9th is a full day of school. Our teachers and 5th grade committee have a full day of fun and celebration planned. Please plan on your child attending all day after the ceremony.
· The student celebration from 1-3pm is for our students and volunteers only.
We look forward to seeing you soon and are excited for a wonderful finale to your child’s elementary years at Brewster.

News From Mrs. McCue!
Dear Brewster Families,
It was amazing to see so many Brewster Bulldogs and family (past and present 😊) at open house Wednesday evening! Those of you that were able to stop by had a peek at the new art room! I am so fortunate to have such a beautiful spacious room in which to teach and be creative. The kids absolutely love it! If you visited you also were able to see our NEW art rugs. I want to thank all of our Brewster families that have supported the Art to Remember program. I combined the money from last year and this year to purchase these two rugs. So far they have been a big hit with classes.
Thank you again!
Enjoy your weekend,
