If you are a parent of a child in 3rd Grade and below, you may be interested in attending the next 75 Morton Community Alliance “envisioning meeting” of parents, school representatives, and community leaders regarding the next phase of planning for the new school (“Parents get their first look at 75 Morton middle school,” The Villager, May 21, 2015), scheduled to open in the Fall of 2017. The most pressing issues to be discussed include timing of principal selection, school size, admissions, and building design.
75 Morton is the direct result of 10 years of parent and community activism to bring a middle school to the Village. Now, Community Board 2’s Schools and Education Committee is looking for more parents to join the 75 Morton Community Alliance to provide input on critical issues before the Fall 2016 middle school admissions season. There are already a few parents from PS 150 planning to attend the June 1 meeting, but all are welcome and needed.
