    The new elementary school's name

    Bitter feelings and heated opinions surround the School Committee’s decision to name a new elementary school after current Superintendent Dorothy Galo. What do you think the new school should be named?  Should there be a formal process for naming a new school?

    Re: The new elementary school's name

    The school should remain East School in an effort to placate townspeople who were mistreated by these elected officials. After a double override - once to build and another to open and staff the school -- it ought to be obvious that this new school belongs to ALL of the town. It stands to reason that ALL of the town should have been involved in naming it. And naming it in recognition of the current, acting head of the school department just doesn't sit well. It smacks of a back room deal. And sometimes perception is just as important as fact. The school committee should have done right by the town to begin with. Now that this whole commotion has happened, and keeps going, they should be big enough to admit the mistake and make it right. Call the school East, as it was in the past, and name the library after Galo.

    Re: The new elementary school's name

    Naming a school is always a sensitive issue, all the more reason to involve the citizens who pay for the school.  The school committee demonstrated very poor judgement, especially when the town's people were very supportive of them in the past.  I hope they realize all this could have been eliminated if they were more up front and objective.  Someone on that board should be a national member of school boards and if so, then they ignored prinicples advocated by the national organization!
