Much Ado About Some Things!

posted Mar 20, 2014, 3:27 PM by Chuck Caragianes

Good afternoon everyone--

Some exciting events are coming up at Maynard High School and in the community.

First off, the incredibly well received Maynard High School Production of Beauty and the Beast continues this weekend with shows on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:00pm and a Sunday Matinee at 2:00pm.  Please join us!

On Saturday March 29th Maynard High School will be hosting a "Celebrating Maynard Schools" event from 10:00am-11:30am.  Babysitting is available for toilet trained children hosted by the Boys and Girls Club along with our NHS students at the high school.  The rooms for childcare will be by the athletics entrance to the high school.

Building tours will be given from 10:00 to 10:30am, a presentation by the Green Meadow, Fowler and Maynard High School will be held in our auditorium from 10:30 to 11:00am, and a question and answer session will be held in the Media Center from 11:00 to 11:30am along with snacks in our cafeteria.  Many thanks go out to the Maynard Educational Foundation and the Boys and Girls Club for partnering with us to put on this first time event.

This is a great way to learn more about our fantastic district!

Meanwhile, on the academic front, this week will have seen our 10th graders completing their MCAS ELA tests on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday while our 8th graders took their MCAS exams on Monday and Thursday.  Next week our 11th graders will be piloting the new PARCC test which is likely to replace the MCAS test within the next few years.  All of our students have been working diligently and our staff has been putting in many, many extra hours to ensure everything goes off without a hitch around these critical tests.

Around the town and area there are also events coming up.  They include:

Maynard Public Library Presents…..
