Superintendent's Notes

The American Legion and Auxiliary invite you to participate in:
The Boys State and Girls State Selections

This is an opportunity for Maynard High School students in the junior class.  The American Legion and Auxiliary invite students to participate in the Massachusetts Boys State and Girls State selection process. Each year American Legion Posts and Auxiliary Units sponsor one or more high school juniors for the Boys State and Girls State citizenship program. This is a unique opportunity for young men and women from Maynard High School and Acton-Boxborough Regional High School to gather for a fun-filled week of exploring how our government works.

For more information about Boys and Girls State see the brochure posted on our website at:

Important Events and Reminders:    
In an effort to streamline these notes, I will remind the Superintendent’s Notes readers of important upcoming events with a reference to the blog where more information can be found.
