Special Edition of the Superintendent's Notes

The WAVM Telethon is this weekend and we need help.

Kathy Hahn and Mary Ellen Jaques are co-chairing the WAVM auction again this year.  Their inventory of auction items the students have gathered so far is well below the number we usually have at this time.  We are asking for help.  If you are able, we would appreciate donations of new items including: toys, sporting goods, household items, apparel, or holiday items with a value of $10 or more to the auction. They can hand deliver it anytime to WAVM between 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. from now until Sat afternoon Dec. 14, 2013.  If you would like, you can also call the studio at 978-897-5179. Thank you.

Invitation to Discussion about the 3rd Grade Location in 2014-15

The School Committee 3rd Grade Location Advisory Committee was thoughtfully set up by the Maynard School Committee to facilitate additional parental and staff input on their upcoming decision about where the 3rd grade class should be located next year.  This is an important decision and the School Committee and Advisory Committee would like to state up front that we have the best interest of our children in mind at all times.

This advisory committee values the input of Parents and Staff.  The Fowler PTO has kindly included our topic to be discussed at their meeting on Wednesday December 11 at 6:30 at the Fowler Library.  This is an open invitation to parents from both Fowler and Green Meadow to share their concerns and generate data for the School Committee to consider when they deliberate.  

The School Committee 3rd Grade Location Committee began collecting questions from the school community.  We have developed a question and answer document to share as we move forward collecting more data and answering more questions. 

If you would like to see the Q&A document, the details can be found on the December 6th blog.
