As some of you know, an exciting part of the new school building is the work that will also take place in the areas of Medfield surrounding the school. As part of the 21st Century building process, the city's INSPIRE program will be holding a walkthrough of the neighborhood to discuss our areas of concern.
The INSPIRE program will include recommendations for how to improve the surrounding neighborhood environment and improve quality of life for students, their families, and all neighborhood residents. Here is a link to their SURVEY for more feedback!
Neighborhood Walkthrough Poll:
Using this Doodle Poll link, please let the PTO know by this Friday (tomorrow), July 5th which of the four dates (feel free to pick more than one) work for you and we will go with the date that has the most positive responses.
