RIVER RAIDER

Dear BRMS Families:


It is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of another school year.  We are all extremely excited about the warmer temperatures and longer days.  Students and staff are enjoying being outside more as we head into the month of June.  We have many activities and events planned for the end of the year.  Be sure to check out the important dates listed below so you can mark your calendars.


Our 8th Grade Recognition Night is scheduled for Monday, June 17th.  The event will be held outside on our athletic fields.  In the event of inclement weather we will move the festivities into the gymnasium.  We will provide additional information for families as the date nears.  We will also be celebrating the success of our departing 8th grade students with a trip to Jay Peak and an excursion on the Spirit of Ethan Allen during the last week of school.  It is always a bittersweet time of year for our staff when we say goodbye to our students as they head off to MMU.  We have many great memories with your children and it has been a pleasure to watch them learn and grow over the last four years.  Their first two years at BRMS was truly a unique experience that we will never forget as we navigated all of the challenges of the pandemic.


I would also like to highlight the evening of Thursday, May 30th.  Browns River Middle School is hosting our 2nd annual Fine Arts Night from 6-8:00 p.m.  Student work from the school year will be on display throughout our entire building.  All students will have work on display.  Frannie Willard, our BRMS art teacher, has been working tirelessly over the past few weeks to prepare for this amazing evening.  I highly encourage families to take time to visit and enjoy all of the talented artists within our school walls!


Have a great weekend


Kevin
