4H Building Committee members approached the SC Board of Ed and district administration to discuss an opportunity regarding their plans to build an addition to the current 4H building located just east of the school property. Their purpose was to inform the district of their plan to build the addition and to open dialogue regarding the district’s interest in potentially utilizing the new space. The vision of the 4H group is to have the new and old space to serve as a community building, thus their presenting to both Woonsocket and SC school districts. A number of uses for the space were discussed as potential activities being made available. This list is not all inclusive: Space for various classroom parties and activities that are difficult to hold within the school classrooms, plays and other activities where a stage would be of use, potentially hosting FFA/AG related events, like CDE’s and other activities that an inside space would be helpful, practices for marching band, winterguard(if it returns), cheerleading, or any other activity that may need space that is difficult to schedule in either school’s facilities. The building ideas were discussed, and the district was asked to consider if there is interest in committing to use the facility and to what degree would the district be willing to commit to using it from a financial perspective. This idea will continue to be discussed as part of February’s board meeting with a final decision to be made by the March board meeting, per the request made by the 4H building committee in order to further the process in a timely manner. If you have any ideas or thoughts regarding the school district committing to use this facility, please feel free to share those thoughts with school district personnel. This information will be a part of the discussion at the February 10th SC Board of Education meeting.
