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.
Winter Break Wishes!
On behalf of the Brewster staff, please accept our warmest wishes for a peace and joy filled break with family. Whether you are staying in the area or embarking on safe travels, we wish you smiles that don't end, long conversations that spark old memories, magical moments that celebrate being present with those you love, and rest that refuels your core. We look forward to the New Year and welcoming our students back ready for learning in 2022!

English Second Language Supports!
The ESL Parent Liaison Center (PLC) is open to all families across our district who speak English as a second language. The goal of the PLC is to provide a place where families can interact with one another and form a sense of community.
Several different classes and events are offered at the PLC, all of which are free of charge. These include: ESL Conversation classes, Social Coffee Hour, Story Time, American Culture Class, Walking Group, Informational Classes, and Special Events.
The Parent Liaison Center also offers guidance and support for school, and community related topics.
We hope you will join us and become a part of our ESL Community!
This week, we focused on the character strength of self-control. Self-control means you can control your emotions and behaviors. You think before you act.
Self-control is the act of managing behavior in a way that positively influences goal attainment and living up to standards. Possessing this strength protects people from destabilizing emotional extremes. Those with self-control can limit impulsive behavior. They are able to experience and navigate difficulty while remaining poised. Self-control does not mean a lack of thoughts, feelings, or impulses; it just means you have command over them.
A group’s ability to demonstrate self-control often appears in the form of “self-monitoring.” This means the individuals demonstrate honesty with one another about successful group practices. When things are unsuccessful, group members can adjust roles in the interest of overall group success.
To practice and encourage the character strength of self-control with your child, please visit the Positivity Project’s P2 for Families (password: P2), where together you will watch a video, read a quote, and talk about the answers to three questions.
We greatly appreciate your support modeling and encouraging self-control with students!
