Our Mission:

Educate for the Future.

Our goal is to educate voters across the Pentucket Regional School District on the urgent need to approve funding for construction of a new school building for grades 7-12.

Our Story

We are a municipal ballot committee comprised of residents representing all three member towns of the Pentucket Regional School District. We are dedicated to educating voters about the importance of approving a Spring 2019 ballot measure to fund construction of a new school building for grades 7-12. 

We believe that approving this measure is necessary to:

  • Uphold the academic standards and competitiveness of the school district

  • Affirm our belief as a community that educating our children is a priority

  • Protect home property values in all three towns

  • Preserve the traditional values of these towns as places where young families want to live

  • Avoid the real and costly risk that the existing facilities could fail at any time

We Stand for Diversity 

We are not just parents with young children. In fact, our volunteers include residents whose children have graduated and couples who do not have children. They believe investing in their local schools will make the towns more robust and protect their property values. 

Our volunteer base includes coaches, teachers and students themselves. It includes alumni who can't believe the original buildings are still in use. 

Most importantly, We Are Pentucket is comprised of people who love the communities where they live and want to preserve the family-first reputation of Groveland, Merrimac and West Newbury.
