Pickering Middle School Forum Video

9.15.16

Some last night voiced complaints that the first forum was not well publicized. (LynnHappens heard about the first forum when it was too late to change plans to be there.)

It was held at the New Marshall Middle school. Teachers and staff were on hand to lead tours after the forum, though due to the forum’s duration, few left the cafetorium to take them up on the offer.
