We missed the boat when Marathon Elementary School was named.
We now have a chance to change that!
The new Elmwood replacement school should be named the Head of the Charles River School.
The wetlands on the east side of Hayden Rowe around the schools go through a culvert into the backyard of 134 Hayden Rowe and proceed south.
Though the Charles River has many tributaries, this being the highest point in the river, it is the start of the river.
This is the only place that can be named the head of the Charles River, and I believe it is the only logical name for the new school.
