Annual Kids Only Shopping Extravaganza! RETURNS
We are currently gathering items for our Annual Kids Only Shopping Extravaganza!
For those of you that are new to BPMS, this event is a fundraiser for PIE and a favorite for students! We set up one of our spaces like a store and children come and buy items for family members for 25 cents, 50 cents or $1. Then we wrap the items and send them home in a bag with your child for future gift giving.
Please bring gently used items that can be regifted to the school by Friday, December 10th!
A box is set up in the Library Barn outside the school for parents to drop items off, or, if you send items in with a student, there will also be a box outside the office.
We appreciate your support in donating items such as: candles, jewelry, picture frames, small home decor, small toys or games (no stuffies, please) for this annual favorite for students and staff alike! Look through your unused items to see if you have things to donate.
As always, thanks for all the support you give to the BPMS PIE!

COVID-19 vaccine for children 5-12
Did you know that the COVID-19 vaccine for children is ⅓ the dose of the adult vaccine?
- It is very safe for children and is key to getting our lives back to normalcy.
- Many children at Brewster-Pierce have already received their first dose and some even their second!
- If you have questions, or want to sign your child up to receive the vaccine - Here is the link: https://www.healthvermont.gov/covid-19/vaccine/vaccines-children?gclid=Cj0KCQiAtJeNBhCVARIsANJUJ2HLPhem781_-ydX7zgQQvhfWxDonIMvStaFcF-N-MrIzQWa1TZ7mPAaAssrEALw_wcB
Early Release Wednesdays at Audubon!
Following the MMUUSD calendar, one Wednesday each month will provide an opportunity to get outside after school at Audubon, to explore and ramble with nature as our guide. Brewster Pierce Memorial School students can ride the bus to Audubon (arrives between 1-1:20 pm), or parents can arrange transport. Program runs from 1-5pm! Come to one or all.

In Need of Help around the Holidays?
As the holidays approach we wanted families to know that we have local resources including Edward Heyman's Soups On, Neighbor Helping Neighbor, The Little Free Pantry and the BPMS Backpack program available to help. Funds are available for many things, including:
food, heat, utilities and transportation. Your need for assistance, even if it is just one time, will remain confidential.
Do not hesitate to reach out ~
