There’s a meeting tonight at Nelson Library, 7 p.m., about the plans to close the library as part of Grafton’s library consolidation. I may try to sneak out, but we’re in the process of decorating the Christmas tree and the kids are hellbent on dragging out all the other decorations since we didn’t get around to doing it yesterday — and I’m out the next two nights so I’m facing accusations of being a bad mother — so I may not make it. If anyone wants to report back, I’d appreciate it.
Also, I’ve been lax on the voting nag — Tuesday, that’s tomorrow, today if you’re reading it on Tuesday, yesterday if you’re reading on Wednesday (in which case, you’re late)… anyway GET OUT AND VOTE on the plan to add modular classrooms to Grafton Middle School.
It is freaking overcrowded. There’s no way around it. There will be an addition 100 kids next year and squeezing them into the existing space would be a disaster. The debt exclusion includes all costs associated with them — equipment, desks, lockers. No need for additional teachers, since there are several who are on carts who will be happy to have a classroom to call their own!
And, my son notes, at least the new classrooms will hopefully have the only clocks in the building to show the proper time.
