This past Saturday morning, I was honored to be part of the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Mountview Middle School in Holden. In attendance were Senator Harriet Chandler, Representative Kim Ferguson, representatives from the MSBA, Holden Town Manager Jacquelyn Kelly, School Committee members and members of the Mountview Building Committee. Master of Ceremonies, David White, did a wonderful job organizing the event. I want to thank Principal Erik Githmark, Chair Paul Challenger and the other members of the Mountview Building Committee for their hard work over the past several years.
This project represents the last in a long line of school renovations and construction projects that the District has been part of in the last two decades. When completed, Mountview will be a state-of-the-art learning facility that is designed to last for generations. Student learning spaces will be bright and airy, with technology access throughout the building. In less than two years, Holden middle school students will be attending a true 21st Century school. It is my pleasure to be a member of the Mountview Building Committee. I look forward to watching the building take shape over the next several weeks and months.
