Week in Review: Budgets, Principals and Polio
Take a look back at the top stories in Winchester last week.
Recently, the U.S. Figure Skating Association released the documentary, RISE, that focused on the 1961 figure skating team that died in a plane crash. To honor the Vinson-Owen family from Winchester, students at Vinson-Owen Elementary travelled to Stoneham and skated around the ice rink.
The Vinson-Owen school also has a new principal that was appointed last week. Grant Smith of Malden was chosen as the permanent principal, replacing longtime Vinson-Owen staple, Guido Sabelli, who retired at the beginning of the year.
The Lynch fifth graders defeated the teachers in the fourth annual basketball game.
The town of Winchester recently released its proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2012. It contains two budgets – one if the March 29 override passes and another if it fails.
