Clean water award
Fox-Melanson also announced that the Carlisle Public School Water Department was honored in a Worcester City Hall ceremony for "its efforts to provide a safe, clean, drinking water supply to its customers." Superintendent of buildings and grounds David Flannery received the Massachusetts Public Water System Award which annually recognizes community water suppliers for their outstanding performance in providing customers with clean, dependable drinking water. The 522 community water systems in the state are annually rated for their compliance with drinking water regulations, source protection, distribution programs, and administrative quality. "This proclamation is notable and laudable, considering all the concerns in town with water," said Fox-Melanson.

The school administration presented first-grade teacher Esther Almgren with a 20-year plaque. Technical integration specialist David Mayall and grade 5 teacher Bill Tate were awarded crystal apple awards to acknowledge their 30 years of teaching.
The Carlisle Castle has been cleaned, thanks to parent Mark Lemire, his son, Timothy, and the custodial staff.
