Special Announcement- DRRHS Awarded $492,000 in Grant Funding

Good Afternoon Students, Parents, and Community Members:
       We received information after the week ahead was sent yesterday afternoon so we wanted to send a special edition. I have also received many inquiries to my last day at DRRHS, which will be Thursday March 9th. See below for our special announcements.

We received confirmation late yesterday afternoon that DRRHS was awarded nearly a half million dollars in grant funding from the state. We would like to especially thank Environmental Technologies teacher Mrs. Yeager and CTE Director Ms. Peters on writing this grant for our school for a "green" lab and "energy" centers. See the official release below.

Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School: $492,519 – The school will expand a “green” lab instructional space. This lab space will contain a variety of “energy” centers that allow students to manipulate interior and exterior climate environments, and these relationships, to a variety of building materials, surfaces and outdoor environments.

Once again thank you for all your support. Have a great weekend.
