This Week at BA  

September 19, 2014
Earlier in the week all students, except for our ESL students, took IOWA tests while ESL students took the TOEFL. Following testing on Tuesday, students spent a few hours bonding with their academic teams. Make sure you ask your students what they did – a lot of fun and funny good times happened (a BBQ, KanJam, Scavenger Hunt, cookout on the beach field games, strategy building challenges, and even a little work on a team charter) Photos.

Jaime Laurent Honored by Rotary Club

Dean of Campus Affairs Jaime Laurent was honored Monday evening as a Paul Harris Fellow by the Wolfeboro Rotary Club. The Paul Harris Fellow honor is given in appreciation of tangible and significant assistance given for the furtherance of better understanding and friendly relations among peoples of the world.

“I am humbled to be honored as a Paul Harris Fellow by the Wolfeboro Rotary for my work with youth through the Interact Club at Brewster Academy ,” Laurent said. “I am looking forward to the journey ahead this academic year.”

The service commitment that Brewster’s Interact makes is both local and global., she explained. Students are involved with Rotary International’s fight to eradicate polio worldwide to helping homeless students here in the local school district.

Last year Interact students raised enough money at a Brewster basketball game to fund the purchase of a wheelchair through Rotary and the Wheelchair Foundation.

Laurent, who is a member of Rotary, is beginning her second year as faculty advisor to the Brewster student Interact Club. Currently there are about 12 members of Interact at Brewster but Laurent is hoping to grow this number this year.

10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse
Brewster Academy and Kingswood Regional High School students will combine theatrical talents this weekend to cast, produce, and perform a one-act comedy 10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse. It’s the third annual collaborative with Kingswood drama students, and this year it will be performed in the just renovated Anderson Hall, marking the first production to be performed on the new stage.

The whirlwind weekend begins at 5:30 p.m. today with pizza, acting games, and assignments. Rehearsals begin Saturday with a technical and dress rehearsal on Sunday followed by the performance. Good luck to the following Brewster students participating Shawna Okaura, Isaac Weiss-Meyer, Gala Meyer Marti, Isabella Haskell, Molly Russell, Oliver McCabe, Bryce Shipman, James Cook, and Jake Anderson.

For our local parents, the curtain opens (“literally” for the first time) on Sunday, at 7 p.m., and tickets are $7 at the door.

Grandparents' Day is Tuesday
Grandparents' Day is next Tuesday, September 23. We look forward to welcoming many Grand Bobcats to campus. They will enjoy a morning coffee with Mike and Andrea Cooper, attend a class with their grandchild, and enjoy a campus tour followed by lunch and cheering on their favorite athletes on the practice sidelines. Any questions, contact Susan Repplier, special events coordinator.
