Cala's Food and Spirits

Cala's fresh food is "Home style" modern & the ambiance is "Cheers" casual. A warm and inviting gathering place where families dine out, friends catch up & acquaintance are made. The food is local New England flavor and our lobsters are caught right off of our shores by one of our favorite regulars. The beers are always cold, the wine pour is never skimpy and the pint size drinks are worth the wait for a much coveted seat at the bar.

About Manchester-by-the-Sea
Manchester Massachusetts is filled with exclusive estates and nook and cranny neighborhoods tucked along scenic Route 127. Manchester is located on the North Shore of Massachusetts and is one of four towns including Essex, Gloucester and Rockport located on historic and scenic Cape Ann.

Don't miss walking the trails in the Coolidge Reservation. It is home to seaweed draped rocks and tide pools alive with all sorts of fascinating little creatures. Don't miss the path through the woods to Clarke Pond with its creek that connects it to the Atlantic Ocean.

Downtown is filled with great restaurants and wonderful little shops for browsing. Manchester is a mostly upscale residential community but does have some public beach access including beautiful Singing Beach which includes views of Baker's Island and Little Misery Island.

DID YOU KNOW: that Singing Beach really does sing? If you pull your hands through the sand or shuffle your feet over it, it makes a squeaking sound kind of like a high pitched violin! Come and try it!

Green School Modeled after the  


3 Pillars of Success!

     Modeled after the US Department of

Education’s Green Ribbon Schools Program,

exemplary practices in your K-12 school.


The aim of U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools is to inspire schools, districts and Institutions of Higher Education to strive for 21st century excellence, by highlighting exemplary practices and resources that are easy to implement.

  3. Provide environmental education, which teaches many disciplines, and is especially good at effectively incorporating STEM, civic skills, and green career pathways


Encouraging resource efficient students, schools, and districts, allows administrators to dedicate more resources to instruction rather than operational costs. Healthy schools and wellness practices ensure that all students learn in an environment conducive to achieving their full potential. Sustainability education helps all students engage in hands-on learning, hone critical thinking skills, learn many disciplines and develop a solid foundation in STEM subjects.
