The Shapleigh School was the fortunate recipient of Bob's Discount Furniture's Celebrate the Arts contest, and on Thursday, November 14, was presented a check for $5,000! Cathy Poulin, a member of Bob's Outreach program, presented the check to Principal Anne Ellis in front of students from all five grade levels. The Shapleigh School was randomly chosen from those who entered online at, and nine schools - one from each of the nine states within which Bob's has store locations - win $5,000 each.

Over the coming weeks, Mrs. Ellis and a small committee will solicit input on how best to use this money, with several options already being considered. Thank you very much Bob's for your support of the arts, and for choosing the Shapleigh School!
