Construction of the arch & other centennial projects like the extensin of the District Office, Office of the Parents-Teachers Cooperative (PATEMCO) and Conference Hall are still ongoing and need more financial support.  School officials are therefore appealing to alumni of the DepEd Bulusan to come to the aid of their Alma Mater.
