Last night at EGS- continued discussion on new elementary schools

Councilor Memhard and the City’s school committee hosted a forum on a beautiful September night.

The school committee presentation was briefer than the one at West Parish. The size of the audience was the same. There were repeat attendees and fresh faces. The handout was ambitious and sincere. Various wants and needs expressed were not in concert, but respectful. Councilors Paul Lundberg, Val Gilman, and Council President Joseph Ciolino listened attentively as did Chris Sicuranza from the Office of the Mayor, and Community Development Director Dan Smith. Several teachers currently working at East Gloucester and Veterans elementary schools and the 2 principals were present. Exceptional teachers from both schools made helpful comments. Ruth Flaherty spoke for the EGS staff. Residents and parents shared questions and comments until the scheduled start of the Presidential debates.
