Our Students Respond to Those in Need

posted Oct 20, 2017, 9:27 AM by Chuck Caragianes

Good afternoon,


Our students have been quite active fundraising and raising awareness for hurricane victims in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico as well for the victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting.  The spontaneous response by our student body to these disasters and tragedies is a testament to their compassion and self awareness as people and is to be commended.


The end of the first marking quarter of the year is now coming up quickly in just 2 weeks on Friday November 3rd.  Please help make sure that your student is on top of all of his or her classes with a strong finish to the quarter featuring excellent attendance and quality completion of all assignments.


On another front, our Maynard Sports Boosters offer many terrific items through their school store link, the proceeds of which benefit our students.  With the colder weather coming, and holidays around the corner, check out their offerings of clothing and more at the following link:  https://maynardboosters.itemorder.com/sale?read_message=true


Notice of Roadway Construction

Beginning on Monday, October 23rd the Great Road (Rt. 117) will be undergoing roadway construction between Summer Hill Road to Sherman Street.  This construction is planned for completion in approximately one week.

The east entrance of Tiger Drive is not in the construction zone and will remain open throughout the roadway construction on the Great Road (Rt.117).  The west entrance of Tiger Drive and the Crowe Park entrance will experience some shut downs and detours.  Police details will be at the construction areas to help with traffic.


News From the Studios of WAVM & Mr. Ogden’s Class

The latest episode is here!  After some initial hardships with the engineering of the file, Justin came through and we have a new episode up and running for all to see!  New segment premieres, new Pam's corner, sports, announcement, photos, & more!


We always want to feature to the community everything that you are doing, so if you have any announcements please let us know.


Congratulations to all the students behind the scenes for MHN.  With so much attention given to those we see on screen, we often forget all of the students behind the scenes: editing, lighting, directing, working the camera, writing, and more.  Well done to them!


ENJOY!

Enjoy a Lovely 3 Day, Fall Weekend!

posted Oct 6, 2017, 12:46 PM by Chuck Caragianes

Good afternoon,


We have arrived at the Columbus Day three day weekend and more than half of the first marking period is now complete.  The last day of the first quarter is now less than a month away and falls on Friday November 3rd.  I hope you and your student have an opportunity to relax and recharge this long weekend, perhaps enjoy some fall foliage or apple picking, and that your son or daughter returns on Tuesday ready to finish up the first quarter well.


All of our sports teams remain in action with busy weeks ahead right through Thanksgiving and I hope you have a chance to take in a game or games to support our student athletes.

A Wonderful Close to September

posted Sep 29, 2017, 12:45 PM by Chuck Caragianes

Good afternoon,


I’d like to thank the hundreds of parents and guardians who attended “Back to School Night” yesterday evening from 6:00-8:00 pm here at the high school.  It was a great turnout and gave our parents and guardians a chance to meet their student’s teachers and get a sense of the academic day at Maynard High School. I’d also like to thank the representatives who were here from the Maynard Music Association (MMA), Remembering Maynard’s Own (RMO), our Parent-Teachers Organization (PTO), Maynard Education Foundation (MEF), Maynard Boosters Club, and Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) for their efforts getting out information and for their incredibly generous support of our students and staff members.  Finally, I’d like to thank our students for their help and support at “Back to School Night” as guides around the building, for assistance handing out schedules, for providing a lovely bake sale and water sale, and for raising money to support scholarships and for hurricane relief for the people of Puerto Rico.  It was a wonderful evening.


As further proof that time flies along, when we return to school on Monday the calendar will have changed to October and nearly half of the 1st marking quarter of the year will be done.  Please check in with your student and in IPASS to make sure they are on target and doing well so far this year.  To help ensure your child’s success in school, please continue to make sure that they are here everyday on time and ready to get to work in every class.

Please mark your calendars and save the date of Thursday September 28th as we hold our annual “Back to School Night” from 6:00 to 8:00pm.  This is an opportunity to become acquainted with your student’s teachers and the academic expectations for the year.  In addition, many of our parent led support groups will have informational tables that you’ll want to check out.  Please plan on joining us!


This morning we held our first Advisory Group sessions of the year where students and staff members take a class period to take part in a wide range of activities of personal interest.  It is an opportunity for our students to come together in groups around topics of mutual curiosity to build friendships and connections with new people around the building including peers and staff members alike.  Ask which group your student selected when he or she gets home this afternoon.


Fall arrives at 4:02 pm today.  With the days getting noticeably shorter, and with later sunrises, it becomes tempting to stay in bed just a few minutes longer each morning.  Please continue to help your student establish a good, on time, attendance pattern this year with a predictable morning routine to ensure a timely departure from home every morning.


As a reminder, Maynard High School opens for students at 7:00am for breakfast and academic classes begin promptly at 7:45am.  There is no traditional homeroom period.  If your student is walking into the building at 7:45 they will be late for the day and late to class where they will be missing academic work.  A 7:30 arrival all year long will ensure that your student has time to visit their locker, say hi to their friends, get settled for the day ahead and get to class on time.


Related to being on time, please be aware of the following:

When your students arrive each morning all food and beverages must be consumed in the cafeteria and cannot go up to the classrooms.  We have students with quite severe food allergies and introducing food into classrooms greatly increases the possibility of a strong allergic reaction.  So if your student is stopping for coffee and a bagel in the morning, they’ll need to build in time to eat it prior to going to class rather than thinking they’ll be munching or sipping during 1st period class.

Altogether we raised $206.88! Then the following Monday the penny war for the week had begun. Buckets were brought to both lunches everyday where students could put change in their classes bucket. By Friday, the Sophomores came in first with $43.57. Coming in second was the Senior class with $15.19 in pennies. Once other change and bills were accounted for, The freshmen were - $2.90 and the juniors were in last place with - $6.15. All totaled, the penny war raised $127.02. Great job MHS!

A Wonderful Visit

posted Sep 15, 2017, 5:33 AM by Chuck Caragianes

Good afternoon,


This past week we had 16 foreign exchange students from Spain wrap up their time with us here in Maynard concluding a wonderful visit that began this past September 3rd.  I sent out a special message regarding the details of the visit yesterday (a copy of the full text of that message follows below), and the Beacon Villager also published an extensive article yesterday that I urge you to read.


19 Maynard High School students will be travelling to Spain this coming February during the school vacation week to be hosted by the families of our recent guests along with Maynard Chaperones Jen Adams and Mary Finnegan.  We are anticipating that the addition of this very exciting program this year is a harbinger of many such opportunities in the future.


Please mark your calendars and save the date of September 28th as we hold our annual “Back to School Night” from 6:00 to 8:00pm.  This is an opportunity to become acquainted with your student’s teachers, the academic expectations for the year, and receive information from some of our parent run groups.  Please plan on joining us!

****************************************

(The full text of yesterday's message regarding the exchange program)


We have just concluded an enormously successful student exchange program at Maynard High School that I think you’d like to hear about.


On September 3rd 16 students from Spain along with two of their teachers, Carolina Clavijo and Juan Antonio Bascon, arrived at Logan airport and were greeted by 19 host families from Maynard for a 9 day educational experience.  Each visiting student was matched with a student, or students, from Maynard High School and was hosted in the home of a Maynard family during their stay.


Over the course of their stay students visited the Boott Mill in the Lowell National Historical Park for an introduction to the early American industrial revolution, attended a Lowell Spinners baseball game to see a quintessentially American pastime, shadowed their host student for a day at Maynard High School, toured Boston via Duck Boat and Harvard University by foot on a guided tour.  They took in Thoreau’s vision of Walden Pond with guest host and Maynard Scholar John Kucich and then went on to visit the magnificent sculpture gardens of the deCordova Museum.  There was a free day with host families taking their student guests to Faneuil Hall, shopping malls and a New England Revolution game.  A tour of the Salem Witch Museum and House of the Seven Gables also gave a peek at the darker side of New England and local history.


On the 10th the Fitzsimmons family hosted a wonderful potluck dinner and games night attended by scores of people to further enhance this incredible visit.  On Monday the 11th our visitors gave presentations and developed fun activities to share with our students at Maynard High School and the Fowler School through our World Languages classes.  The 11th culminated in a cooking class that evening with recipes shared across cultures including, quite naturally, Boston Creme Pie.


Our students, families and guests gathered one last time at 4:45 am on Tuesday morning  for the Spanish students’ departure from Maynard High School on their way back to Logan Airport for a short visit to New York and then home to Spain.  Tears of joy and appreciation were shed by many.


This coming February, during school vacation week, it will be the Maynard host students’ turn to have a cultural experience of their own as 19 MHS students head to Spain along with MHS staff members Jen Adams and Mary Finnegan.  They will  be hosted by the families of our recent guests and I’m certain they will enjoy an amazing adventure abroad.


It is impossible for me to thank enough people for making this possible, and though I run the risk of leaving someone out, here is my best attempt.


First, our trip and event coordinators Jen Adams and Mary Finnegan were the absolute driving force on our end of the exchange.  It is impossible to give enough thanks here.


I’d also like to acknowledge Superintendent Gerardi, his office and staff, and the Maynard School Committee for their active and enthusiastic endorsement of this program.


Chaperones and guides on various trips including Doug Luther, John Flynn, Liz Henderson and John Kucich were essential to the success of several of our events.


Finally, an enormous debt of gratitude goes out to our host families and children for their generosity of spirit, time and resources to make this exchange possible.


Our students and their families included Hannah Booth and family, Abigail Candela and family, Sophie Copley and family, Kate Denn and family, Erin Egan and family, Elisa Faret-Machado and family, Emma Fitzsimmons and family, Kaitlyn Gargas and family, Adam Henderson and family, Lucas Koskinen and family, Chris Kucich and family, Sofia Lappas and family, Grace Longo and family, Jinnie Mannion and family, Elizabeth Midey and family, Charlie Neuhauser and family, Emma Rubio and family, Emily Tummino and family and Emmeline Weeks and family.


As you can see, this was a huge undertaking and it was carried off with joy and aplomb thanks to the efforts and support of dozens and dozens of people.


This program showcased Maynard High School at its best and the entire Maynard Community at its best.  This should be a harbinger of many more such opportunities to come.


Go Tigers!

Good afternoon,


We’ve had an excellent week at Maynard High School with students now firmly in the swing of their classes and our extra curricular activities including clubs and sports teams getting quite active.


This afternoon our students attended class meetings and attended a rally in our gymnasium to celebrate fall sports.  All of our fall sports teams are now in action for the year.  Check out our Athletics website for complete schedules for all of our teams.  Here’s the link:  https://sites.google.com/a/maynard.k12.ma.us/atheletic-department/   Many thanks go out to the students and staff who orchestrated these events, our sports captains, to Charlie Neuhauser for singing the National Anthem, and to our band for performing so well.


Please mark your calendars and save the date of September 28th as we hold our annual “Back to School Night” from 6:00 to 8:00pm.  This is an opportunity to become acquainted with your student’s teachers, the academic expectations for the year, and receive information from some of our parent run groups.  Please plan on joining us!


Early in the year our attendance has been outstanding with very high attendance rates and great rates of on time arrivals.  A thank you goes out to the students and their parents and guardians for making it a point to take care of this essential element needed to support student success.


As a reminder, Maynard High School opens for students at 7:00am for breakfast and academic classes begin promptly at 7:45am.  There is no traditional homeroom period.  If your student is walking into the building at 7:45 they will be late for the day and late to class where they will be missing academic work.  A 7:30 arrival all year long will ensure that your student has time to visit their locker, say hi to their friends, get settled for the day ahead and get to class on time.

Our Student council has been working hard and are back to work. At the end of last school year, Student council elected new officers and created new rules for the Maynard High School Student Council Constitution.

Our student council came together a few times this summer to attend things such as the Special Olympics and a MASC camp. Some of our student council members who attended the camp include Kyle Morgan, Axum Semakula, Ally Morgan, and Erin Egan. At this camp they learned about topics like leadership and ways to make their student government stronger. The Student Council met a few days before school started to discuss plans for the first day and the upcoming year.

A Strong First Week Leads to a Long Labor Day Weekend

posted Aug 31, 2017, 12:13 PM by Chuck Caragianes

Good afternoon,


It’s been a great opening to the 2017-2018 school year.


Tuesday evening we had a lovely cook-out and celebration for all the students who were involved in summer activities of all sorts related to the high school including our WAVM students, band members, and student-athletes among others.  The event was generously supported by the Friends of WAVM, the Maynard Music Association and our Sports Boosters group.  It was a great way to lead into the new school year.


On Wednesday morning we greeted over 400 students to the first day of the school year in our gymnasium and the entire day went smoothly and enthusiastically.  Class meetings were held with each group of students, Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors, in our auditorium and our students received information on expectations for the year, updates from their student Class Officers and Class Advisor, and some information about changes coming for the food services program delivered by Chris Piercey our Food Services Director.


As I went through the building and visited classes a very efficient first day was in evidence as materials and syllabi were distributed and reviewed and an introduction to classes began.


By Thursday we were on our normal schedule and students were increasingly squared away in all of their classes.  As a result we were in excellent shape headed into the long, 4 day Labor Day weekend and are in a position to really hit the ground running next Tuesday when we return.


Speaking of next week, our fall sports teams will be engaged in their first games next week.  Check out our Athletics website for schedules and locations.


As the year begins we now have 7 new staff members. Please join me in welcoming Building Level Substitute Travis Zimmerman, Physics Teacher Angelo Villani, World Languages Teacher Sigifredo Jara, English Learners Teacher Justine Ferguson, Special Education Teacher Jamie Boda, School Nurse Mary Ferranti (Transferring to MHS from the Fowler) and Secretary Gail Lucas to the Maynard High School community.


We are indeed fortunate to have such a first rate group of professionals joining us at Maynard High School!


As a reminder, Maynard High School opens for students at 7:00am for breakfast and academic classes begin promptly at 7:45am.  There is no traditional homeroom period.  If your student is walking into the building at 7:45 they will be late for the day and late to class where they will be missing academic work.  A 7:30 arrival all year long will ensure that your student has time to visit their locker, say hi to their friends, get settled for the day ahead and get to class on time.

Our student council came together a few times this summer to attend things such as the Special Olympics and a MASC camp. Some of our student council members who attended the camp include Kyle Morgan, Axum Semakula, Ally Morgan, and Erin Egan. At this camp they learned about topics like leadership and ways to make their student government stronger. The Student Council met a few days before school started to discuss plans for the first day and the upcoming year. They came up with a fun new welcoming activity for the Student Body that everyone seemed to enjoy. They’re all excited and ready to make this year the best one yet!


Fundraiser to Benefit the Katherine K. Lalli Memorial Scholarship Fund

Save the Date for "Music Together in Katherine's Memory", Sunday, September 17th, Battle Road Brewery, 5 Mill and Main, Maynard, 5 - 10 PM. From 5-6 PM, Pat and Vic Lalli,  from "Music Together of Assabet Valley", will entertain the younger audience.  From 6 - 10 PM, various musicians who have played with the Lalli's will entertain the older audience.  Proceeds from the event will benefit the Katherine K.

If you would like to make a donation in Katherine's memory at this time, please make your check payable to "Town of Maynard." Include "Katherine K. Lalli Memorial Scholarship" on the memo line. Please mail donations to: Maynard Town Building, 195 Main Street, Maynard, MA 01754, attn Cheryl Kane, Treasurer. Acknowledgement of your gift will be forwarded to Katherine's family.


Congratulations

Congratulations are very much in order for Paul Howes who was named Division IV Central Massachusetts Boys Basketball Coach of the Year by the Massachusetts Basketball Coaches Association.  Paul will be honored at their annual banquet on November 19th.  The Tigers are not only the reigning State Champions, but were the State runner up the year before that and are the two time defending Central Massachusetts champions.  Well done and well earned.

That’s the news for this opening week of school.


Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend,

Chuck Caragianes, M.Ed.

Principal of Maynard High School


It's Back to School Time!

posted Aug 30, 2017, 8:26 AM by Chuck Caragianes

Good afternoon,


The calendar has drifted into late August and it is time to get ready for the 2017-2018 school year.  I’m very excited to get the school year going and I am confident that it will be another outstanding 10 months ahead.   Our goal for the year ahead is your goal for the year ahead:  A successful year for your child, or children, filled with growth academically, socially and behaviorally.


Our students’ first day is next Wednesday August 30th and they should report to the gymnasium to start the day.  Though the day does not technically start until 7:45am I urge all students to be in by 7:30am to pick up their new schedule and be ready for actual activities to begin promptly at 7:45am.


Greeting your students will be our first rate staff including 6 new members this year. Please join me in welcoming Physics Teacher Angelo Villani, World Languages Teacher Sigifredo Jara, English Learners Teacher Justine Ferguson, Special Education Teacher Jamie Boda, School Nurse Mary Ferranti (Transferring to MHS from the Fowler) and Secretary Gail Lucas to the Maynard High School community.


I am quite pleased indeed to have such a first rate group of professionals joining us at Maynard High School!


As a reminder, Maynard High School opens for students at 7:00am for breakfast and academic classes begin promptly at 7:45am.  There is no traditional homeroom period.  If your student is walking into the building at 7:45 they will be late for the day and late to class where they will be missing academic work.  A 7:30 arrival all year long will ensure that your student has time to visit their locker, say hi to their friends, get settled for the day ahead and get to class on time.


Related to being on time, please be aware of the following:

When your students arrive each morning all food and beverages must be consumed in the cafeteria and cannot go up to the classrooms.  We have students with quite severe food allergies and introducing food into classrooms greatly increases the possibility of a strong allergic reaction.  So if your student is stopping for coffee and a bagel in the morning, they’ll need to build in time to eat it prior to going to class rather than thinking they’ll be munching or sipping during 1st period class.




Our guidance counselors will all be in next week and are very responsive to emails and phone calls.  Should you or your child need assistance with anything related to their schedule feel free to contact Lisa MacLean, Dana MacPhee or Renee Muise.


As the year unfolds, feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns.


All the best to you and your family for the 2017-2018 school year,

Chuck Caragianes


Below are some additional items of note and upcoming events:


A Celebratory Cookout for Our Hard Working Students

This summer many of our students have been working at WAVM, in Music, in Sports and have been volunteering their time at the school and in the community.  All of these students are invited to a back to school cookout this Tuesday evening from 6:00-7:30 on the patio in front of Maynard High School.  Come on over for a great time!


Congratulations

The Final Weekend of the 2016-2017 School Year

posted Jun 16, 2017, 10:07 AM by Chuck Caragianes

Good morning,

 

This past Saturday was graduation day at Maynard High School with nearly 90 young men and women receiving their diplomas or certificates of completion.  They are no longer students of Maynard High School.  They are now graduates and alumnae of Maynard High School.  The ceremony was held in our gymnasium and was extremely well attended.  The air was filled with excitement and went off tremendously.  Many thanks go out to all who made the event itself possible.  A special thank you goes out to the parents and supporters of our recent graduates for their tireless efforts on behalf of their children.  A further shout out goes to the graduates themselves for all of their hard work, achievement and growth over the course of their high school years.  Well done!

 

Graduation also means the end of the 2016-2017 school year is soon upon us.  The last day of school is this coming Monday June 19th, which is an early dismissal day at 10:55am.  Breakfast will be served, but lunch will not be provided on that day.

 

Underclassmen final exams for grades 9-11 are wrapping up today and Monday June 19th is a make-up day for any students who missed an exam.

 

Summer reading lists and assignments will be on the school website within a couple of days.

 

And now more MHS News from Mr. Ogden’s Radio & Television Production Class

 

The end of the year and the end of the Season 2 crew of MHN News is here.

 

A very special episode; you can't miss this one!  A Senior Project PSA from Mike F., and a united Fun Facts featuring all the students that made this season possible.  

 

Television is a true team effort, and this group of students wonderfully embodied this concept.  

 

A personal thank you to all my students; your surprise segment was touching and means a lot.  You will all be dearly missed.  And a special thank you to all the professionals who offered their support throughout the year and made this Maynard High School newscast possible.

 

We hope you look forward to next school year, as MHN will return, back and better than ever.  There are so many great things going on at WAVM!

 

ENJOY!

 

MHN SEASON #2 FINALE

 

Let us know if you have something you would like to feature on the news to kick off next year..

 

A special thank you goes out to all the students who worked so hard to make this happen.

 

You may find the following information and description of upcoming events of use and interest in the days ahead:

 

Savers Fundraiser at the High School for Spanish Exchange program

Time to do some spring cleaning?  We will be collecting gently used clothing, linens, shoes and small household items (no books, electronics or furniture please) on Saturday 6/17 from 9AM - 2PM in front of the high school.  There will also be a collection box in the front lobby of the high school where you can drop off your donations starting June 5th. We have a group of Spanish exchange students visiting Maynard High School this fall for about a week and we would like to be able to show them some of the local sites that make our area so special.  We hope to raise funds to help defray the cost of these activities and to help our students be able to visit the Spanish students in their homes next year as well. Please consider going through your closets and helping us out!  Thank you so much.
