Wellington Tour Stop 3: 23 students, two power outlets

We’re continuing our virtual tour of Wellington School today. In Part 3, Karen Parmett and Bob Martin, head of facilities for BPS, take us to a classroom in the “newer” wing of Wellington (which means that its only 45 years old). The class has only two power outlets, which means that teachers have to string extension cords across the room to run equipment like overhead projectors, etc.

Some folks have asked if BloggingBelmont is _just_ going to be about schools. The answer is absolutely “no,” but right now I’m working through some material from this week’s School Committee meeting and the Wellington “unedited” tour. My hope is that B2’s content reflects what’s on the community’s mind and that includes cost of living issues, commuting, traffic, parking, parenting, schools, commerce in town, the environment, important people in town — you name it. And actually, you naming it (in the form of an e-mail) would  help me understand what issues people are interested in hearing about.
