Brainado strikes again! When Crossett Brook student Connor wanted to learn small engine repair, the school helped him connect with local professional mechanic Albert J. Caron. But as Connor's knowledge about engines grew, so did other skills that support his learning, and Connor was able to obtain a summer job at Caron's shop. Community mentors like professional Caron can offer so much in terms of reinforcing, expanding, and grounding the most important learning that goes on in schools. Click here for a 2-minute look at this.

At CBMS our 5/6 Health Education program includes a few Puberty Education lessons to 5th and 6th graders towards the end of the school year.  The following links are great resources for families to use in the meantime.
