Basketball Teams play at TD Garden

Yesterday our boys and girls basketball teams played a double header against Westford Academy at TD Garden. The girls lost a hard fought battle while the boys pulled out a victory. Regardless of the outcome it was great to see our kids compete at such a high level in such an iconic venue.

Head, Shoulders, Heart & Toes: Sock and Mitten Drive

Lauren Hill, Class of 2020...

Help those in need this long, cold winter by bringing in new donations of socks, mittens, hats, and more. All donations will be given to CleanSlate Centers in Tewksbury. CleanSlate treatment programs save lives with medication-assisted treatment for opioid and alcohol addictions. Their mission is to fight to save lives and help their patients achieve the lives they want and deserve. Many of their patients are homeless and struggling to stay warm throughout the winter without basic necessities like socks. Their patients come from all over our community, some even from right here in Groton and Dunstable. Join us and become a Warrior for Hope by lending a helping hand for others in our community in their time of need this winter. Donation boxes will be placed outside the office. Thank you!

Starts on Monday!
