Raymond E. Shaw Elementary School in Millbury, Massachusetts, serves 550 students in grades 3 to 6 in a town along an historically important regional river that provided irrigation and transportation initially, and later water power to various industries. The mills were known for manufacturing filaments and string. The theme of the river, the mills and their product are “woven” into the design of the site and building. Molded red brick is the predominate material of the structure, a material commonly used in many New England mill buildings.
