On Thursday September 20, the Webelos I scouts visited the Bloomfield Township School Board Meeting.  The boys all enjoyed the opportunity to learn how the school system is run.  This will help them in pursuit of their Scholar Activity Badge.

Board Member, Ed Ford, introduced himself to each scout individually prior to the meeting.  Mr Ford is actively involved with Boy Scout Troop 1022. 

During the meeting we listened to School Board President Ingrid Day lay out the goals for the new school year and give special recognition to the Webelos I from Pack 1014 out of Eastover Elementary School!  Assistant Superintendent, Christine Barnett, talked about how they are implementing the goals of the Board.  Ms Barnett also mentioned they have recently hired 80 new people including 40 new teachers.  

After the meeting, Board Member, Cynthia von Oeyen, told us how her son used to be member of Pack 1014.  The Board was very friendly with the boys and they learned a lot about their school system.
