Progress goes on at the new school campus on the Fellsway, and the brand new Middle School should be ready to receive students for the fall semester of this year.

Stella Construction Company of Wakefield: so far, so good, said Mayor Rob Dolan who led a group of parents, students and officials through the new building recently.
