Thank you

Matt Tabler, Anthony Martini, Steven Knight, Erick Trejo and Austin "AWESOME" Elliott for making our school more beautiful this week!


Kindness and community partnerships make a difference! We couldn't have done it without you.

On Friday, September 6th our program received an $8000 grant for the improvement of our school’s computer lab and new computers for our students! With the small student to staff ratio provided at BREC, budgeting funds for such projects and equipment is particularly challenging. With community grant funding, the development of a computer lab for our students becomes a reality. We are very grateful for the generosity of the Rotarians and for our community partnerships.

Thank you Front Royal Rotary Club!

The Crunch Heard 'Round the Commonwealth

Posted October 5, 2018

On October 5th, B.R.E.C. participated in the Crunch Heard ‘Round the Commonwealth, an event where all participants simultaneously take a bite out of a locally-grown apple.


This day is part of Virginia Farm to School Week, scheduled for October 1-5, 2018 to coincide with National Farm to School Month. This year, the VDOE is encouraging schools and education centers to “Make some Noise for Virginia Farm to School Programs” to recognize the importance of these programs in improving child nutrition, supporting local economies, and educating students about the origins of food.

Many thanks to our public partner, The Homestead Farm at Fruit Hill Orchard for providing us with locally-sourced, delicious apples! YUM!
