Principal's Update

Braintree students were hard at work this week. We celebrated January birthdays and the students who best exhibited PAWS during the all-school assembly on Monday. Jenny and Kiara, along with Ms. Gershon, made an interactive bulletin board to celebrate the first week of Black History Month. They researched Madam CJ Walker, the first self-made Black millionaire. Students can answer the board's question for a chance to win a prize.

We also filled our PAWS tokens jar, earning a school-wide reward - Sleigh Rides & Hot Chocolate!

We are excited to continue a fundraiser with Mowing Organic Seeds to fund an all-school Spring Celebration. Fundraising fliers will go home Friday. Until then, you can check out available seeds and place orders using this form. Orders placed and paid for February 13 should be delivered around March 1, and orders placed by April 13 should be delivered around May 1. Thank you for supporting Braintree!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please drop me a note at

STEM is in full Force!

While intermediate students are still hard at work on their inventions and board games using Little Bits and Makey Makeys, third graders are coding interactive online stories. Kindergarteners and first and second graders are learning about motion. This week, they converted potential energy to kinetic energy and explored mass and inertia!
