Personnel changes, building projects, and curriculum updates topped the list of agenda items at our Sept. 12 board meeting — our first meeting of the 2013-14 school year. Before I share my thoughts on each, let me first say that I hope all Wilton families had a smooth start to the new year. It’s never fun to say good-bye to summer, but I do hope everyone is settling back into the school routine.
I’m sure your children raced home the first few days, just raving about all the great building improvements that took place over the summer! You may recall that last spring, voters approved funding to refurbish the Middlebrook and high school bathrooms, upgrade the Consumer Sciences kitchen facility at Middlebrook, and completely refurbish what had been the Tech Ed room at Middlebrook, in order to make way for our new Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) course. I’m happy to report that each of these projects has been completed, along with the finishing touches to our Middlebrook roofing project.
