It is important that all attend Kay Smith-Blum’s first meeting of this school year this Saturday. This is not just her chance to share her thoughts with us, but is also our chance share thoughts with our School Board Representative and our community and to learn about the experiences of others in our community. Remember that as you review the agenda items below such as capital planning , the next building cycles, Lowell Elementary, and APP all have the potential to greatly impact the neighborhood assignment plan and the schools in the area, which in turn would affect our families and communities.
