Historical Tidbit: The South School
"On March 21, 1931, the town meeting voted to have a committee bring in plans and specifications for a four-room school for south Raynham to replace the large wood-framed school. 

On April 25, 1931, it was voted to construct the building at a cost of $29,000. There are now six classrooms. One unique factor in the construction of South School was that one section of the main floor was movable and could be raised or lowered, similar to the stage at Radio City Music Hall in New York. However, the floor has been stationed and secured at one level for many years. Miss J. B. Goodick, long-time South School principal, was an example of the finest teachers of her time."

If you've never seen what he can do, watch this video of him above at the Celtics and be amazed! A truly incredible talent, AND your ticket is a chance to win a Rob Surette original!

Also, have you seen what he can do with Legos, gumballs, and lipstick?!?! Tickets are on sale for $7.50/ea for elementary and middle school families in town!

There will be also be additional raffle tickets for sale for the chance to win another Rob Surette original painting (You can decide on which one you want yourself.) Bring cash/checks to the show if you want to have a shot at this.
