Hey! Wake up, blog! New school year starting soon!

Hey, you. Yes you! Thanks for checking in on this quiet space. I started this blog in a burst of excitement, but did not focus on updating it, with predictable results (an empty blog!).

But the new school year is starting soon--Tuesday, August 26! Click here for the newly redesigned (I feel we must celebrate positive changes no matter how small--props to the graphic artist who made it better!) Providence Public Schools calendar. We have a new superintendent on board, lots to talk about.

So, welcome, and let's talk about what's working well in our school system, what's not, and what parents and family members can do individually and collectively to make our schools excellent places for learning for all of the children in Providence.
