Latham School to Host Rare Open House for Brewster in Bloom Weekend


Latham School of Brewster invites the public to attend one of two Open House campus tours on Saturday, May 3 during Brewster in Bloom weekend. Staff and volunteers will host two guided tours at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. of the residential campus serving children with complex special needs, including Prader-Willi Syndrome. Latham School is located at 1646 Main St. in Brewster, across from the Brewster Fire Department.  Visitor parking and tour check-in will be at the Latham School parking lot at the corner of Alden and 1646 Main Streets.

These two interactive campus tours offer a rare opportunity for the general public to witness the vibrancy of Latham School’s programs. Tour highlights include stops at the Latham Schoolhouse; Yawkey Dormitory;  Student Craft, Soap and Plant Sale; a Dog Training Exhibition by a Latham Student and Companion Animal Program mentor; a Student Spring Art Show; and Latham President & CEO Anne McManus speaking on the history of the Captain Elijah Bangs Main House. Proceeds from the Craft, Soap and Plant Sales will benefit Brewsters Ladies' Library. Visiting children are welcome and can access the campus playground during their visit. All tour guests will receive a complimentary, all-natural goat’s milk soap made by Latham School students.
