Yes, the Parents Talk about Providence Schools blogs still lives! As a busy parent myself, I didn't allocate much time for blogging in 2008, but it's a new year, and time for a new start.
And it's time to let you know that on Wednesday, January 7, at 7:00pm in the library at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School, 35 Camp Street in Providence, the Providence Public Schools will be holding another information session for families interested in the possibility of attending Nathan Bishop Middle School, which will be reopening for 6th graders for the 2008-9 school year. This information session will be hosted by Mr. Lazzareschi, who will be moving to Bishop as principal, and Providence Public Schools Superintendent Tom Brady.
If you have any interest in Bishop for the fall for your 6th grader or for your younger children in later years, please attend to find out more. And please know that the deadline for middle school registration has been extended to give families an opportunity to enroll in Bishop if they have not done so already. The deadline will be at some point in January 2009 and we will share specifics when we know them.
This is a great time to find out more about what teaching and learning will be like at Bishop. We hope to see you there!
