Capital Projects

  • MS HS Picture

    We are proud of our partnerships and grateful to our community – from voters who consistently support our schools during budget and capital project votes, to the countless number of volunteers who dedicate their free time to help kids, to our towns that always respond positively to requests for assistance. We could not do it without your support.
