Please read page A 9 in the current Beacon Villager!

 Jean LaBelle, the Maynard High School Economics Teacher, had her students write letters to the editor about their views on the national dept and deficit.  The editor published it on Page A-9 as a story titled “The Newest Voters: Students speak out on deficit, tax cuts, social security". 

I am so proud of our school community to have teachers and students getting published on a topic of such importance.  This article really provides insight as to how the next generation feels about our economy.  They will be the problem solvers of our future so it is good that they are articulating their concerns so well at such an early age. I know that we have focused a lot of energy on preparing our students to be good writers and this article is just one more demonstration of the academic success in Maynard Public Schools!

Maynard Country Club

Hi All,
I missed this announcement in my Superintendent's Notes today and thought that this Blog would be a good venue to get the message out.
What do YOU think we should do with the old Maynard Country Club?

Recreational fields?
Golf course?
Affordable housing?
Community gardens?
Walking trails?

You are invited to participate in two upcoming events to help plan for the future of this 60+ acre town-owned site:

October 10, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.  Maynard Country Club Clubhouse, 50 Brown Street, Maynard
Participants will propose, discuss and prioritize their initial ideas and goals for the future uses of the site.

October 20, 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. Maynard Country Club Clubhouse, 50 Brown Street, Maynard
Walk approximately 1.25 miles around the country club site, while examining the environmental conditions and discussing the potential future uses for each area of the property. Wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather!
