Three cheers for the work of the West Side Public Education Coalition as it rallies the community to support the students of Asa Messer and West Broadway Elementary Schools as they transition into the Bridgham Middle School building (which will be called what? Bridgham Elementary?).
With support from the Mayor's office, PPSD and other organizations, WSPEC is holding a soccer tournament and info sessions about the renovations being done to the Bridgham building this Saturday, July 23 and next Saturday, July 30 from 2:00pm to 6:00pm at Mansion Field next to the fire station at Messer and Union Streets. Read more about the events here on WSPEC's website.
This feels to me like the exact right thing to do. Transitions such as this one require not only resources but strong, clear communication about what's happening our kids as they're assigned to schools, and WSPEC is stepping up to make sure that happens.
