Show thanks to your teachers by telling them they are Stars!


The Arlington Education Foundation Stars program is a way to tell teachers and school staff, “Thank you for all you do!”  

For a donation of $20 or more, the teacher or school staff member of your choice will receive a certificate that honors him or her with a gift to the Arlington Education Foundation in his or her name . You will receive a receipt for your tax-deductible donation. 


Stars donations go back into our schools as funding for AEF grants both large and small, including Continuing Scholar Awards and Innovations in Education grants that go directly to teachers. Read more about AEF grants here:

Holiday Helper Program Kicks Off!

Dear Brackett Families,                       

Every year our school comes together to provide gifts for Arlington children who would otherwise go without this holiday season. The program is run by the Town of Arlington with local organizations, Brackett being one, fulfilling the children's wishes. This year, Brackett is "adopting" the wishlists of 21 local kids. We would also like to provide grocery gift cards so the families can prepare a nice holiday meal.

New Colors of STEM Poster Featuring Katherine Johnson!

STEM Poster

Mathematician Katherine Johnson is our third portrait in the series of posters highlighting the contributions of STEM individuals of color.  Born in 1918, Katherine excelled at math as a child in the South during the segregation era.  She graduated college at the age of 18, and began her career as a ‘computer’ in NASA during the Space Race between the United States and the Soviet Union.  Her calculations used geometry to compute the trajectories of spacecrafts which helped American astronauts safely travel to the moon and back in 1969.  She received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and was featured in the movie “Hidden Figures.”

Check out this new poster across from the Brackett Library to learn about Katherine’s love of math, and how her work helped the US win the Space Race!
