During the 17-18 school year, our new building was completed at our Camp Caravan campus.
The donations of many friends helped open the new building in September 2018. The school carries a large mortgage and welcomes donations to lower the mortgage, so that tuition income can be directed to educating children.
Now that we are settled in the new building, we are renovating the ‘auditorium’ building for all-school events, performances, dance classes, and community events. So far, this 36’ by 60’ building is completely insulated, rewired, new walls and ceiling and septic installed, and it has heat! The final projects are handicap bathrooms and handicap access, which can be completed for a frugal $25,000. Donations are welcome to fund this project and get it done this winter, so we can use the building year round.
Once a year, Village School parents host Saturday Morning on Royalston Common, on the common in Royalston, usually the first Saturday in June.
The morning includes a pancake breakfast, a silent auction, the Millers River Morris Men dancing, a live birds of prey presentation and much more. This fundraiser is dedicated to improvements to the Village School buildings.
If you drink coffee, you can buy fresh coffee, whole or ground, monthly, online at the school website. You pay the same price or less than you would in the store for this high quality, locally roasted coffee. The coffee is delivered to the school a week later, and is waiting for you in the hallway.

In the fall, when you buy groceries at Hannafords, take any ‘school dollars’ you receive at the cash register, and deposit them in the Village School spot in the collection tower in the store, or drop them off at the school. Ask friends and family to do the same. The program runs from September to December 1.
