Let’s Build An Inclusive Middle School

Please join us to learn about the new middle school. You will have the opportunity to give input on what special education students need and have your questions answered.  SMMA, the architects and project managers, will present an overview of the project and Superintendent Laurie Hunter and Ruth Grube, Director of Student Services, will be present to hear from the SEPAC community.

When: Thursday 30th January from 1:30 – 3:00 pm

Where: Conference Room 4, Ripley Building, Meriam Road

CMS Building Project Forum

On Tuesday, January 14, 2020 in the Sanborn Middle School the Concord Middle School Building Committee is hosting a community forum for parents and community members to ask questions, give feedback, and input during this crucial planning phase of the project.

What do you envision for the new middle school? What building challenges have there been in your child’s education that you would like addressed in the new building? Your voice and experiences are important. Let the Building Committee know what your student needs to help them find success in middle school.

Happy 2020!
