    The celebrate nothing kids get yelled at for speaking at during lunch time and then they get yelled at for talking during class (I agree with that one) but let them be kids once in a while. Of course they're going to want to talk to their friends during lunch. I despise this school! Anything they do is to benefit themselves! There are a few great teachers such as Mrs. Caron Mrs. Mulcahy and Mrs. Venda and Mrs. Dion and of course Mrs. Barry but the rest are miserable. It's sad that my kid comes home and tells me he overhears teacher talking about quitting because they hate their jobs and the principle...who is aweful and when it's pouring out they make the kids stand outside in it. The lunch aides tell my kids to shut up!!! Nothing is ever done about it and the OT teacher barely shows up!!!! Disgusting! If you hate your job QUIT. Because the kids are suffering!

    My grandaughter is a kindergarten student this year at Brickett School. At the beginning of the year she was struggling with completing her work. Today she if doing exceptionally well. I have to give credit to not only her family for taking time with her but for the great teachers she has Mrs. Barry and Mrs. Gagnon. They are very patient and thoughtful when it comes to their class. I have found the Brickett School very kind and considerate to all children.
