Donelson School News - September 2017
Last newsletter I wrote about the situation of the delay at Pennington Elementary School’s expansion and renovation. This past month I’ve also been made aware of the need for repair and upgrade of sidewalks and crossings around the school. I’m engaged with Public Works and MNPS and they are looking into this. I hope to be able to share progress in subsequent newsletters.
Speaking of sidewalks, the good news to share is that as you probably have seen if you traverse McGavock Pike, the sidewalks connecting McGavock High School onto McGavock Pike are being installed. I’ve asked for that for a long time. I also have a Capital Improvement Budget request for a sidewalk on McGavock Pike to at least for now connect McGavock High School and Two Rivers Middle. Not time frame and I still need to get that funded, but it would be well used I believe.
