The Brookline and Newfane voters passed both of the warned articles on October 23rd, giving the Brookline-Newfane Joint Contract Board the ability to enter into a Solar Net Metering Credit Purchase Agreement for up to 20 years and to install a new air-to-air heat pump system, financed through a municipal loan of up to $330,000.
The Superintendent regrets that this final engineering study, completed in March of 2013, was not posted on the school’s web site until the oversight was called to our attention today. The final report supersedes the preliminary study previously posted.
The NewBrook Elementary School Four Winds Nature Program needs volunteers for the 2014-2015 school year.
NewBrook Elementary participates in the Four Winds Nature Institute’s Nature Program. Founded in 2006, the Four Winds Nature Institute is a non-profit organization advancing the understanding, appreciation and protection of the environment through community-based natural science education and research. For more information go to www.fwni.org .
At NewBrook Elementary, Four Winds volunteers teach natural science lessons in each of the classrooms at the school. To prepare for this, these volunteers attend six, two- hour workshops throughout the school year. These workshops are held at either NewBrook Elementary or at Townshend Elementary. Volunteers take what they learn at the workshops into the classroom and share their knowledge with students. The lessons and activities are very straightforward and easy to follow. No previous teaching experience is necessary. Lesson materials are provided.
Volunteers are amazed by what they learn about the natural world! They feel good about sharing this knowledge and appreciation of the environment with children.
If you are interested in volunteering for this great program, please contact Sandy Stark at 365-7057 or at firstname.lastname@example.org .
