Beginning in September 2017, all ninth grade students at Braintree High School will have the opportunity to bring and use their own Chromebook or laptop in school for educational purposes. Students will be able to register one device for use in their classes, then connect to our wireless network for safe, managed access to resources. Students are not required to purchase a device, but they are encouraged to do so. Devices will be used daily, across the curriculum and throughout the student's high school career. Read Headmaster Lee's letter to families on the high school's Technology page.

We would appreciate each family to donate a bag of candy for this project. Please keep in mind that it must be season appropriate. We are also looking for donations of wrapping paper, tape, gift tags, and ribbon. All donations can be dropped off in the main lobby.

We are asking each child to bring an item to school that relates to the theme for their grade (see below). It's an opportunity for the children to get involved in "creating" the prizes for the raffle. We will send out the raffle tickets before Thanksgiving for each family to sell/buy.

BE CREATIVE! A rule to use: if you would like to win it then it's a great donation!

Please send your donations SOON as the deadline is November 30th.

A safety issue I need to discuss is related to dismissal. Adults and students continue to cross Hayward Street at Hayward Market/Dunkin Donuts. Crossing at this location is dangerous and conflicts with safety lessons your children are learning. At home and at school we teach children to use the crosswalk. If you must cross Hayward Street, please use the crosswalk at Hayward and Commercial Street. There are two crossing guards assigned there for your safety. If you are traveling east on Hayward on foot, there is also a crossing guard assigned to Howard and Hayward Street to support pedestrian traffic.
