Nominate a Good Cause for The Giving Project

The Giving Project Now Taking Nominations!

We are delighted to announce that the Giving Project is back! Inspired by Brown English teacher Becky Cohen, the Giving Project is a special community event that brings families from Brown and Oak Hill together over a delicious meal while raising awareness and funds for some of the many charities supported by our students and faculty.

Students and faculty are invited to nominate non-profit organizations they support, along with a brief summary of why they support it. Nominations are due Monday, April 22. The nominations are then shared with both the Brown and Oak Hill communities, and 5 charities are selected to be showcased at our Giving Project Potluck Dinner on Thursday, May 30. The funds raised at the dinner are then shared among the 5 charities. We can’t wait to hear about the charity or cause that inspires you! Click here to nominate an organization today!

Shoo Flu: Get the Flu Vaccine at School, not the Flu! – Brown Clinic – Friday October 26

Seasonal flu vaccination clinics will be held during the school day at the Newton Public Schools and the BROWN MIDDLE SCHOOL clinic will be on FRIDAY, 10/26/2018. Each student to be vaccinated must have a parent/guardian complete two forms:

  1. Consent/Screening form
  2. Vaccine administration record/Insurance form.

Forms are available in the school nurse’s office, or may be downloaded at You may electronically complete the form, print, sign and return. Forms are due to the School Nurse.

Only the flu shot (no nasal spray) will be offered at school this year. The Vaccine Information Statement about the flu shot, and additional information for families including tips on preparing kids for a shot is available at or in the school nurse’s office. There is no cost to receive the vaccine, but insurance information is requested. All students, regardless of insurance status, are invited to receive vaccine with parent permission.

Students are not required to receive flu vaccine, however the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends flu vaccine for all people age 6 months and up. There are many places to get a flu vaccine including at school, your primary health care provider or community clinics. For additional clinic dates for the whole family, visit

In addition to vaccination, it is important to practice good hand hygiene and cough etiquette by washing hands often; covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the arm; and staying home when sick.
