STONEHAM – Members of the Stoneham School Building Committee (SSBC) are looking forward to participating in this year’s Stoneham Town Day on Saturday, Sept. 17 on the Stoneham Town Common.
The Committee will be joined by representatives from architects Perkins+Will, construction manager Consigli Construction and project manager SMMA, and all will be available to answer questions and share updates on the construction project which began in earnest this summer.
Visitors to the booth will also have an opportunity to view renderings of the new building and to hear about the exciting aspects of the project, including the 21st-century technology upgrades, the new STEAM and History labs, the new gymnasium and auditorium, outdoor learning areas, and a town-wide Pre-School program.
Everyone will have an opportunity to snap a construction-themed photo in the SHS Selfie Booth and younger students will have the opportunity to take part in other fun activities.
“As has been previously reported,” notes Committee Co-Chair Marie Christie, “we are anticipating the need to return to Town Meeting in January for an additional funding request. Our Committee has worked diligently over the past year to combat the ever-rising construction costs and supply-chain shortages that continue to affect our budget and that of other schools currently in the MSBA program. Committee members and vendors are eager to talk with the community and answer the questions we know are out there so that when the time comes, voters will be properly informed. We encourage Town Day participants to stop by and share their thoughts and questions.”
SSBC meetings are held twice monthly on Monday nights in person at the Stoneham Central Middle School, 105 Central Street, at 7:00 p.m. Stoneham residents can attend SSBC meetings either in person or via GoToMeeting and can find details about the meetings on the SSBC information page – #stonehamschoolbuildingcommittee or https://www.stoneham-ma.gov/627/School-Building-Committee .
