Mrs. Desmairas talks about planting flowers for the volunteers again this year. She also thanks the PTG for providing dinner for the teachers at conference time.
Ted Kryzak encourages all to go vote and support the school budget. He is also running for selectman. He wishes that he could stay on the school board as well, however he can’t do both, and he feels he is needed more at the selctman’s office. He believes that having a great school adds value to your property and feels that he can help the school more as a selectman.
