Anti Bullying Forum
The Maynard Public Schools will be holding an Anti Bullying Forum on Tuesday October 3, 2017. This event will be held in the Fowler Assembly Hall from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
The Maynard Public Schools Policy Subcommittee is in the process of reviewing the current School Committee Policy #18 Bullying Prevention and Intervention, Bullying Prevention and Intervention Plan, and the Bullying Prevention and Intervention Reporting Form.
We plan on using a World Cafe Method for facilitating dialogue with large groups. We will have break out groups at round tables brainstorming their thoughts on these documents and reporting to the committee recommendations for improvement.
We would like to plan on refreshments so it would be helpful if we could have everyone use the following link to pre-register:

Maynard Public Schools Summer Read
Maynard Public Schools is proud to announce our annual summer read. Teachers, administrators and School Committee members hope you will join them in reading Lost at School By Ross Greene, PhD.
Based on the premise that all kids do well if they can, Dr. Greene proposes a collaborative approach to solving behavioral challenges and helping students . As he states, "if we handle kids with power and control, that's what we get back. What happens if collaborate with them --as partners-- instead?"
The Maynard Public Schools will be donating several copies of this book to the Maynard Library to provide community access to the book this summer. The School Committee will host a community discussion on October 5, 2017 at 7:30 PM. Please join us in reading Lost at School!
