PAWTUCKET â€” The state Department of Transportation (RI DOT) will temporarily close Exit 27 (downtown) from I-95 southbound in Pawtucket for about six weeks beginning Monday.
This closure will allow for the demolition of the temporary exit ramp, as well as the transition to the permanent exit to downtown Pawtucket through the Pawtucket River Bridge Replacement Project.
Cumberland High School art students, from left, Lynn Nachampasak, Emily Feng and Lauren Riley copy a Monet painting of waterlilies onto the wall of the Art Department. Art teachers Betsy MacDonald and Lauren Scotto said they encouraged their students to do the painting as a way to promote art in the school. The three seniors are all accomplished artists and will leave a memorable work for their peers,
according to Scotto. The project has blossomed into creations of art in other areas of the school, including an Andy Warhol â€˜Astronautâ€™ for a wall near the Science Department.
CUMBERLAND â€” On Friday, March 15, students at Cumberland High School had Aydan Nyberg in their hearts â€” and on their sleeves.
Aydan, an eight-year-old student of the Cumberland Hill Elementary School, has been battling cancer since age 3 and has inspired the high school to show support for him in a variety of ways, including wearing orange-colored clothing â€” because orange is his favorite color â€” and holding a number of fundraising projects.
