This blog started in May 2006. It was started by parent Beth Bakeman who was worried about her children's school appearing on the possible closure list during the period of time when the district had determined it was necessary to close schools. (Her children's school fell off that list and Beth determined that while she couldn't carry on the blog, it should carry on without her because of its reach. She turned to Charlie Mas, myself and a few others to carry the torch. ) I am always grateful to Beth for getting this thing rolling.
Last week we passed over 7,500,000 views. That's a lot of views.
I thank everyone who tells a friend or colleague about the blog. And, of course, I thank our longtime loyal readers who have stuck with us.
