Like all parents, I want what’s best for my child. My son will be starting in the Pawtucket public schools this fall. Dropping him off for his very first day of pre-K is going to be a wonderful moment. When he arrives at school, he deserves to be in a safe, dry, warm and modern learning environment. One with the latest educational tools to spark his imagination and prepare him for learning. Every child deserves that, and nothing less.
That’s why I strongly support Mayor Grebien’s commitment to and record of investing in our public school facilities. Over the last eight years, $76 million has been invested in renovations to Potter Burns, Nathanael Greene, and a brand-new Winters Elementary, which is under construction now.
