District 16 middle school students in the Rexton area will be looking forward to returning to classes in September as their modern new school is very nearly finished. The new Eleanor W. Graham Middle School building in addition to 13 classrooms, includes: a cultural center, library, science lab, art room, technology center, stage, and specialized music room; features that did not exist in the former building. In addition the EWGMS community raised $100 000 and as a result its new indoor physical activity facility is 3 times the size of the former school’s gymnasium.
