Invite a friend
Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone and Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development (OSPCD) Monica Lamboy invite all Somerville community members to attend one of a series of events in a “SomerVision Showcase,” our discussions surrounding the City’s 20-year Comprehensive Plan. Events will be held throughout the month of March, and will give community members an opportunity to discuss elements of the Plan and learn about the next steps in the SomerVision process.
Community members are invited to attend one or all of the following events:
Tuesday, March 1st: Argenziano School, 290 Washington Street
Tuesday, March 15th: Holiday Inn, 30 Washington Street
Monday, March 28th: TAB Building, 167 Holland Street
Thursday, March 31st: Center for Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Ave.
“Public input and consultation is key to a long-term strategic plan that will benefit the entire Somerville community, and through this SomerVision process we have worked with residents and stakeholders from many different demographics to develop a working plan that the community can be proud of, and excited about,” said Mayor Curtatone.
More About Dr. Albert F. Argenziano School at Lincoln Park
A roughly $35 million renovation completed in 2007 transformed this K-8 school into a state-of-the-art teaching facility. Formerly called the Lincoln Park Community School, it is now named for former School Superintendent Dr. Albert F. Argenziano. Inside the gleaming, energy-efficient building are over 40 classrooms, a new Library/Media Center, and a Math & Science Technology Center—all outfitted with cutting-edge teaching technologies.
The expansive grounds now feature renovated playing fields and a jungle gym. Over 490 students attend the school and roughly two-thirds are English Language Learners. The school's Structured English Immersion Program provides intensive English instruction. Meanwhile, Argenziano is an international demonstration site for the Quaglia Institute for Student Aspirations, a nonprofit program that helps students set goals and reach them. The social-emotional curriculum, Second Step, is also taught to grade K-6 students.
Test scores are available on the school's website and here. Principal Barbara O'Brien heads the school.
