Here are five things you need to know today in Woburn:
1) Are you ready for some football?
Well, this football already happened. But read on! The Woburn Memorial High School Tanners lost Friday night in a heartbreaker of a game. According to the Lowell Sun, the Tanners were leading most of the game 15-6. But with time ticking away, Burlington scored on a 1-yard run by Anthony Cruz to make the score 15-13. With less than a minute left, Burlington threw a 60-yard "Hail Mary" pass that connected. The Red Devils won the game 19-15 in Woburn. You can watch the game—if you want to—on the Burlington's cable access channel website. The Tanners next game is Friday against the Wilmington Wildcats.
2) Edline codes for schools
The city's public schools website has a new feature for parents and students called Edline. Through this feature, parents can log in and access specific information about their children's schools and classes. But the codes need to be activated! According to the public schools, the codes were handed out to students last week. Take a minute to find the codes, and then activate them. Instructions can be found on the WMHS website.
3) More clouds
According to the National Weather Service, the clouds are with us again today. Expect temperatures to be in the high-70s though! That is about 10 degrees higher than Woburn's normal high temperature for Oct. 2. But it won't be a record. That was broken in 1968 (87 degrees).
4) In case you missed it
We love all of our bloggers. But, we have to admit, Anthony Giglio holds a special place in our hearts. Always there with a smile, Anthony posts often, keeping Woburn Patch readers abreast of all things real estate in our city. Last weekend, Anthony and friends held a yard sale to benefit the Woburn Council of Social Concern. And also took one of our favorite pictures on Patch! The photo is above, the blog post is here.
