Gorgeous night to be in West Meadowlark Park.  Had a nice long chat with fellow construction professional – steamfitter / pipefitter Doug.

What I heard from chatting with a number of residents:

  • need to refocus on basic skills, resiliency, and accountability to better prepare students for life after school
  • we should have one public system (comment came from a separate school family)
  • the proposed school consolidation needs to preserve public access to the numerous playing fields and sports facilities that are nicely linked together across the neighborhood
