Bonfire at Fort Getty to celebrate schools

There will be a bonfire to celebrate the academic success of Lawn and Melrose schools from 5-9 p.m. Nov. 18 at Fort Getty, 1050 Fort Getty Road.

Both schools in the district have been commended by the Rhode Island Department of Education. Schools classified as “commended” are the most accomplished in the state, representing student proficiency in English and mathematics. Melrose was commended for the third consecutive year; this was Lawn’s second recognition. The district also finished atop the state rankings in science achievement.

Along with the bonfire, there will be music, movies, treats and food trucks. Families should bring chairs and blankets. The entire community is encouraged to attend the celebration.
