The State of Rhode Island officially wants to know WHO is interested in using the Cranston Street Armory and for what purposes. Potential users could be community groups, developers and everything in between. Chances are, YOU, neighbor, know someone (or know someone who knows someone) who could really make something special happen in our Castle for the People. With a deadline of January 25 for potential users and operators to share ideas and interest with the state, we need all hands on deck to get the word out about the state’s open “Request for Information” period happening NOW.
Another accolade goes to the Asa Messer Elementary School teaching team as the Golden Apple Award was given to third grade teacher Rachel Greenberg, who teaches English Language Learners with humor, high expectations and some music, too.
