Superintendent's Notes

Maynard District Improvement Plan and Building School Improvement Plans

Last night, the Maynard School Committee reviewed the Maynard District Improvement Plan as well as each individual School Improvement Plan.  A collaborative Power Point was presented by Curriculum Director, Jennifer Guadet, Principal Dankner, Principal Mela, and Principal Cargianes.  These documents can be found on the School department website at:

(be sure to scroll down the page to find the individual links to each plan)

Maynard Town Appreciation Days

The Maynard Golf Course will be open on Oct. 17th and 18th to all Maynard residents and Town/School employees for free golfing.

Call 978 637-2268 to reserve a tee time.

MHS Cuba Trip Fundraiser

The Maynard High School students who will be traveling to Cuba this spring have a fund raiser going on that you can help with (and it may help you)!  If you have things at your house you'd like to get rid of, drop them off at the Maynard High School parking lot on Oct. 17 between 9:00 and 2:00.  Students and chaperons will be there collecting donations for which we will be able to receive money. 

Accepted items include clothing, shoes, accessories, small electronics,  books, and  small household items.  (No furniture, please)  If you have any questions, or would like items picked up at your house, please call, text or email or 781-718-5098. 

Free Concert on October 24th

The Concord Band (an adult, award winning high level band) will be performing "Mystical Moments" for their fall concert at 51 Walden St. in Concord, Ma on Saturday, October 24th at 8pm.  Usually the tickets are about $25. but they have decided to have this concert be FREE!!! (donations gratefully accepted)  
The music is amazing-"The Sorcerer's Apprentice", "Incantation and Dance" and "Carmina Burana" among others. Many members of the Maynard community will be playing in this concert including Mrs. Blanchard on trumpet, after school lesson teachers Mrs. Bundy (flute), Mr. Vabulas (clarinet and arranged one of the pieces!), Mr. Broggi (percussion), and several other folks from town. This is a great night out for the adults as well as a great concert experience for serious musicians and their families. Hope you can come and enjoy!

Calling all pianists!

The High School is looking for a choral accompanist for its high school choruses. They meet Monday-Friday, 2:15-3pm during the school year. We perform a wide variety of literature so the person accompanying would need to be comfortable playing classical, renaissance, jazz, spirituals, musicals and pop literature. There is an annual stipend of $3,000.

Please contact Mrs. Blanchard at if you are interested. Please feel free to pass this along to folks in town that you may know who might be interested. We hope to interview the 3rd week of October.
