The students in classrooms 26 and 27, who lost their school supplies and backpacks, got a special gift on their first day back. Thanks to the kindness of the Lawrence Teachers Union and the American Federation of Teachers, backpacks and a full box of school supplies for each student in those rooms was delivered to their new location. The organization First Book provided the supplies and new books. Thank you from these Bruce School students!
Lots of planning over the long weekend ensured that all 250 Bruce Middle School students arrived to school on time and were safely bussed from the Bruce to their temporary location at the St Mary's Grammar School on Haverhill St. They will take the school bus each morning and afternoon on their regular school schedule.
