School 'Open House' a
We attended what was billed as
Open House at Booth Middle School on
Tues., Sep 14. The Open House began with
general remarks by the principal, Lynn Wentzel,
followed by a PTO General meeting lead by the PTO
President, Rosetta Brown. This portion of the evening
took approximately 30 minutes. We thought we would
then head to the classrooms. However, the next
portion of the meeting was a 35-minute dissertation
given by Janet Smola on the merits of passing SPLOST.
Ms. Smola then stated in the interest of
time she would be available in the front hall
to take questions. No opposing view was put forth,
nor did Mrs. Brown ask if anyone wished to respond.
