I told myself I was going to take a break from blogging until school preview season really kicked off. So I've held off blogging about the school budget, the assignment zones possibly being redrawn, along with countless achievements of students and teachers around the zone. But this one was too good for me to pass up.
The Mozart school is getting a new playground through Boston Schoolyard Initiative. It's really about time. This is one of our go-to playgrounds within walking distance, and even my 3-year-old realizes that the playground is kind of sadsack. He prefers to walk over to the Bates, where they have more space, better playground equipment, and a green circular path that serves as a racetrack for him.
We're very happy with this development.
Mayor Menino also announced that the Mendell would be among those getting an outdoor classroom.
