Change is the only constant! And to make sure we don't forget that, the meeting date for this week's Nathan Bishop information session, mentioned in my last post, has been moved to Thursday, January 8, 7:00pm, in the library at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School, 35 Camp Street in Providence. (It had originally been scheduled for Wednesday, January 7).
Superintendent Brady and incoming Bishop principal Michael Lazzareschi will be on hand as before, and this meeting remains a great opportunity to get clear answers about what teaching, learning, school culture, and other qualities of Nathan Bishop Middle School are likely to be.
Bishop will be a neighborhood middle school serving the greater East Side of Providence. It will open with 6th grade, adding a grade a year through 8th grade. Under the city's school choice policy, seats are set aside for non-neighborhood students.
The deadline for middle school registration has been extended until next week, so if you have not yet chosen your child's middle school, or if you are reconsidering your choice, please take advantage of the extra time and do so through your child's school or though the Providence Public Schools Student Assignment and Registration Center (401-456-1702).
