BUXTON — The new Buxton Center Elementary School and the Dr. Paul Vincent Library will be dedicated at a ceremony at 2 p.m. Sunday at the school, 912 Long Plains Road.

The school consolidated students and staff from the town’s four former elementary schools: The Eliza Libby, Frank Jewett, Jack Memorial and S.D. Hanson schools.

The old schools lacked sprinkler systems, had undersized classrooms and were not handicapped accessible.

The new 128,000-square-foot facility houses 850 students in kindergarten through Grade 5.

 The state paid for most of the $26.5 million construction cost.
