Summer’s fast drawing to a close and thoughts are turning to the new school year. With that in mind, parents with kids in the public school should definitely take advantage of an opportunity to meet our new superintendent, John Phelan.
Superintendent Phelan has been holding coffees with interested citizens all summer long – the most recent was this morning. There’s one more this month: on Monday afternoon, August 18 from 4:30 to 6:00 in the Superintendent’s Conference Room at the School Administration building.
Superintendent Phelan comes to Belmont after 25 years as a principal and teacher for over 25 years in the Boston and Milton Public Schools. Our new Superintendent organized the coffees as a forum to listen to parents, as well as community members. He’ll be using them to help get up to speed on the issues of concern to community members and also to formulate a plan for the district going forward.
If you can’t make Monday’s coffee, there are supposed to be more scheduled in September. Alternatively, you can make an appointment to meet with Superintendent Phelan individually. Please call Cathy Grant at 617-993-5401 to schedule an appointment.
I look forward to seeing you at the next Monday afternoon!
