Performing Arts Center Construction UpdateTrenches are being dug for the foundation of the Performing Arts Center along with the laying of rebar to support the foundation.

PAC Construction Update Yesterday we had the Official Groundbreaking Ceremony for the Performing Arts Center! It was a wonderful ceremony with nearly 200 MSAD #51 students in grades 1-12 performing and approximately 200 parents, staff and community members in attendance.
