Third Grade Visits
Dong...Dong...Dong... The old school bell rings as each third grader takes a turn pulling the rope before exiting the Schoolhouse. Once outdoors, this class will have the opportunity to learn more about what students did during recess 100 years ago! Learn more.
Matching Grant Program
Thanks to an extraordinarily generous donor, we now fund Bourne teacher grants and student scholarships. This enables the Schoohouse to be as relevant in the 21st century as it was in the 19th and 20th centuries. We appreciate the support of our community in this endeavor.Learn more.
National Register of Historic Places
One hundred and twenty-five years after it was built and twenty years after the Cataumet Schoolhouse Preservation Group was established, the Cataumet Schoolhouse was finally listed on both the National Register of Historic Places and the Massachusetts Register of Historic Places on August 15, 2019. We are grateful to all the people who have contributed over many years to this achievement. Thank you!
