Superintendent's Notes



It's that time of year again! The 6th Annual Acton-Boxborough-Maynard PMC Kids Bike Ride  will take place on June 3, 2018 from 8:30 to 12:00 pm at NARA Park in Acton.

PMC KIDS Bike Rides became an official PMC program in 2005 as a way to include young cyclists in the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge’s mission of raising money for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund. These rides enable children between the ages of 3 and 13 to ride their bikes and solicit sponsors to donate money to cancer research. 100% of all money raised at this event and by the children will go directly to Dana Farber via the PMC. Last year we had over 200 riders and raised over $43,000! The event will include the ride, food, multiple kid’s activities, a kid’s chance and silent auction!

Registration is $15 before May 1st, so register your kids early! Ride details and rider and volunteer registration can be found at: http://www.kids.pmc.org/Acton-Boxboro.aspx.  You can also email PMCKidsAB@gmail.com with any questions. Or visit us on our PMC Kids Ride -Acton Boxboro Maynard Facebook page. We hope to see you there!

Maynard is Leading The Nation - Request For Past Graduates

The Maynard Leading the Nation website can be found at the following link:

https://leadingthenation.maynard.k12.ma.us

At the bottom of the home page, you will see two picture frames.  The left picture frame says Coming May 7th-11th Portraits of Past Graduates.   The right frame says Coming May 7th-11th Portraits of Future Graduates where our current Maynard students will be interviewed for a video saying "what they love about Maynard Public Schools"

This is a request to past graduates to video anything you would like to say about how Maynard High School prepared you for your life after school.  Our TV/Radio Production teacher, John Ogden has offered to have former graduates come to the MHS TV studio to be videoed by our students.  He can be reached by phone to set up a time at (978) 897-8891 or by email at:

jogden@maynard.k12.ma.us

If you don't have time to come to Maynard High School or you now live far away, John has provided the following directions to video yourself with an iPhone.  The directions also explain how you can share and send the videos to him.

HOW TO SEND VIDEOS

This tutorial operates under the assumption you are using an iPhone/iPad to do your recording.  If you are using a different brand of phone, some steps may be different, but the process will be similar.  You will need to have the Google Drive app and/or the email app coordinated with your camera roll/photos.

1. Take the video you want to take, using your phone's camera.
     a. Try not to have too many mistakes/blunders in your speaking.  (I recommend writing and having a script in front of you.)
     b. Make sure the lighting is appropriate. (Never shoot a video with the light behind you.)

2. Once you have a satisfactory video, open it up, and press the share icon (it looks like a square with an arrow pointing up). 
     -A new screen will open up that has various ways to share your video.  Select email, to send it directly as an email.
     -If your video is too large, you must first upload it to Google Drive (by pressing the Google Drive icon).  Once uploaded, open Google Drive, find your video, select it, and press SHARE.  Input the email address of the person that you want to share it with.

*Videos of a large size must be shared using Google Drive, and cannot be sent over email.

Panelists will provide feedback to the students about the strengths and areas for improvement in their presentations.  It promises to be a rewarding experience for you and for the students!

The Fowler Play - Campaign Capers at Taft High (by Pat Cook)


What do the office of Student Council President and Shakespeare’s Richard the Third have in common?  Nothing. At least, that’s how it seems at William Howard Taft High School.  Unopposed incumbent Tad seems a shoe-in. However, when he seems more interested in hanging out with his friends than the responsibilities of the office, his girlfriend, Bridget, decides to "wake him up."  That’s how it starts, anyway. The classic “battle of the sexes” that ensues doesn’t leave anyone looking particularly good or trustworthy. Uh oh, these kids really are starting to act like politicians! But who will prevail?

Come find out Friday, April 6th at 6pm and Saturday, April 7th at 2pm to find out!

"Voting" will be held in the Fowler Assembly Hall!

Superintendent's Notes

Maynard is Leading The Nation

At last night’s school committee meeting, TV/Radio Production teacher Mr. Ogden and his Advanced Communications Students presented 4 videos they created for submission to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) Leading the Nation video competition.   Two of the videos received commendations.  The students, Mr. Ogden, and I will be attending a Statehouse Celebration in honor of the 25th anniversary of the education reform law as a result of their participation. 

The students were asked questions about their academic development and their aspirations for post secondary education.  They all spoke glowingly about the impact of the TV/Radio production courses.  The school committee and I were so enlightened and encouraged about what our school system provides our students who will be the future leaders.  While we often hear criticism about details of a large system like public education, it was heartening for everyone at that school committee meeting to know that we are making a difference in children’s lives.  If you did not attend the 3/29/18 school committee meeting, I would encourage you watch it.

In addition to the Massachusetts Leading the Nation Campaign, Maynard was invited by the (DESE) to create our local Maynard Leading the Nation Campaign.  You can see our website at the following link:
