Officials from the proudly cut the ribbon on the school’s new facility on Route 60 in Malden on Wednesday, November 23rd.  A sizable group of Mystic Valley supporters braved the heavy rains to come to the event. 

Included among the attendees were:  Mystic Valley Board of Trustees Chairman Neil Kinnon;  Mystic Valley Board Members: Fran Brown; Tom Brennan and Janice Bissex; Malden’s Mayor-Elect Gary Christenson; State Representatives Chris Fallon and Paul Donato; Mystic Valley Assistant Directors George Benzie and Chris Finn; Mystic Valley Business Manager Rick Veilleux; Project Manager Ken Antonucci;  Malden City Councillors Neal Anderson, Barbara Murphy and Jim Nestor; Melrose Alderman Peter Mortimer; Joe Leary from Salem Five; Ted Coates, Director of the Malden Chamber of Commerce; Mystic Valley Professional Development Coordinator,  Gina McKinnon; Mystic Valley PTO Representatives Andrew Schaad, Doreen Bibilos and Nicole Manseau and Mystic Valley Parent Advisory Council member Ann Carroll.

“The Ribbon cutting signifies another large success in Mystic Valley’s story, providing a long needed home for its winter athletic programs and a first rate home for its Kindergarten students where the Mission begins," The Chairman of Mystic Valley’s Board of Trustees, Neil Kinnon, said.

"The fact that all of this was done without receipt of any State School Building Assistance Funds should in the long term provide a model for how taxpayer money can be effectively and efficiently used to provide a first rate education in the Commonwealth. “

Hey John do you read the news? I thought I read they are looking at the former Wellington Truck property for a new Eastside Fire Station. Why don't you post your comment on the ribbon cutting for Malden High School as well. It belongs there just as much as it belongs here. Stop attacking so much. She lost, build a bridge and get over it.

Jeez John sounds like your drinking a little of the tainted kool aide. I was just pointing out to the other John that a building built by a charter school has nothing to do with a new fire station.

Marc I believe what John Q is trying to point out here is all these Malden politicians here smiling for the photo all were able to help get a gym/swimming pool built in literally months but they have been unable to get a new fire station built for the east side of Malden.

The building of a new Eastside fire station has nothing to do with the building of the new charter school facility. Not sure about the fire station roof. But the way I see it if MHS has a beautiful pool and gym to call home then why can't the charter school. I hope the new year gives the Fire Dept. a new home on the eastside in a timely fashion. John Q....I do feel you pain about years without a new Eastside fire station.

Congratulations to MVRCS on such a nice facility! There certainly was a lot of thought put into how to get the most bang for their buck with this place. I also appreciate how much thought went into making sure the kindergarteners would be safe, especially with the pool there. Great job!
