Dear BRMS Families,

It was an extremely busy last week of school at BRMS!   We had many events happening throughout the last five days including our 2nd annual BRMS Grand Prix. Our NEST advisory groups had a wonderful time racing around our back parking lot on carts in relay style races.  Each NEST group designed a special hood ornament that was fastened to the cart.  The creativity of each group was amazing!   

Our 8th graders are wrapping up their final days with a trip to Jay Peak Water Park and a boat trip on the Spirit of Ethan Allen.   We are excited about the opportunities that await our departing students as they head off to MMU.   We have had an incredible four years with this group of students.  It is always amazing to see the tremendous amount of growth that happens during these four years of development.  This group started out during a pandemic and ended with a total eclipse!   We will miss the BRMS class of 2024.

The weather looks great for Monday and we have made the decision that 8th grade Recognition Night will be held outside.  Details for the event can be found below.   Please call us if you have any questions about this event.   We look forward to seeing everyone on Monday night to celebrate our 8th grade students.

This is the last River Raider of the school year and I want to wish everyone a happy and safe summer vacation!  We look forward to seeing you in August!

7th Grade Placement

Placement letters for 7th grade students will be sent early next week.  We are planning on having a Move Up Day for these students on the afternoon of June 18. The placement process for 7th grade students can be a challenging endeavor for our committee. There are many  variables that need to be considered for placement as students begin to have more elective classes like Spanish and French.  This can be a challenging time for our students as there may be some friends that end up on a different academic team this year. We believe that it is important to help our students work through these changes as they will continue to build a capacity to adjust to change as they move through school and life.  Students will still have many opportunities to see friends on the other team during lunch and recess everyday and several other events that happened throughout the year.  We encourage you to have these conversations at home with your child if there are any concerns that come up around next year’s placement

Browns River Disc Golf Course is officially open for play! This is a great addition to our campus. Students and families are encouraged to come check out the course. We recommend downloading the Udisc app on your phone if you come to play.

There you will be able to keep track of score and it will help you navigate the course with the map feature. 

A huge thank you to following people for their hard work in making Browns River Disc Golf Course a reality -
