When inclement weather is on the way, everyone at Glenelg Country School has just one question: What does Jim say? For two decades, Jim Silvestri has served as a teacher, coach, and in-house weatherman, often predicting snowfall amounts and timing of thunderstorms with greater accuracy than any news outlet. It is one of the many things that students remember when they think of eighth grade science and Mr. Silvestri.
