    Westerly Public Schools is pleased to share this overview of The Granite Curriculum Guide. Created by a group of dedicated individuals, including Westerly teachers, The Granite Curriculum Guide aims to foster greater knowledge of Westerly’s historic granite industry and to teach the next generation about their connections to this heritage.  While items built from stone are visible within our community on a daily basis, this curriculum will encourage students to develop sense of the larger national and international story of the granite industry as well as awaken their curiosity about objects within their own homes and around town that they see every day.
