Pictures of the Week
We were excited to host WCVB Channel 5’s Chronicle on our site this week for an upcoming show on education.
It is beginning to feel a bit like fall! Horticulture is doing a great job decorating the campus with pumpkins grown on site!
We attended the Project Adventure Annual Un-Gala last night where Essex North Shore Agricultural & Technical School was named “Partner of the Year.” This award is for all of the amazing work that Counselor Julie Montague does with our Project Adventure after school program. Thank you and Congratulations, Julie! So well deserved!
