Cooperative Middle School Renewal Committee to Present on Building Project in Stratham
STRATHAM– The Cooperative Middle School Renewal Committee would like to invite Stratham residents to attend a presentation on the proposed building renovation project.
Tuesday, March 5 at 7 p.m.
Stratham Town Hall, 10 Bunker Hill Ave.
On March 12, voters will be asked to consider a $17.8 million project to improve services for students, faculty and staff at CMS. All six towns that make up CMS — Brentwood, East Kingston, Exeter, Kensington, Newfields and Stratham must collectively pass the ballot item with at least 60 percent voting in favor for the initiative to move forward.
The project includes adding classrooms, installing another elevator closer to the entrance of the building, creating a multipurpose room for arts and alternative physical education, re-configuring the cafeteria so that lunches no longer need to begin at 10 a.m., and creating office space for teachers and staff who are currently relegated to storage closets.
During the meeting, CMS Renewal Committee Co-Chair Lucy Cushman and CMS Assistant Principal Bill Perkins will present on the overall scope of the work, budget impact and how the project will benefit the CMS community.
“This is a great opportunity for residents to come out and ask questions about the project before the vote on March 12,” CMS Principal Patty Wons said. “We encourage anyone who needs additional information about the building project to attend.”
