It’s here—The WAVM
Beacon Santa Telethon. Help us as we
look to break the One Million Dollar mark over the history of this great
event. Students and staff have been
working hard to get ready, will be sleeping in shifts at MHS (supervised of
course), and will be lighting up the airwaves once again this year from Friday
night through Sunday afternoon. Please
tune in and contribute if you can.
Our Financial Aid
Night was a huge success this past Tuesday night with well over 50 parents and
students attending to gain insight, advice and assistance as they prepare to
navigate the challenges associated with financing a college education. Many thanks go out to all of our Guidance
Counselors—Lisa MacLean, Renee Muise and Chris Devine.
On Wednesday night our
auditorium was packed as we enjoyed our annual Holiday Concert. Vocal ensembles, our Jazz Band, Wind Ensemble
and Concert Band all performed wonderfully.
Mrs. Blanchard and Ms. Gately are to be commended for their dedicated
work with over 150 students and I’d like to also thank the Maynard Music
Association (MMA) for all of their hard work behind the scenes.
Beacon Santa Telethon
The WAVM Telethon (which raises money for the Beacon
Santa Fund) will be held at Maynard High School on
December 11-15, and once again the students are in need of donated items for
their on-air auction. Donations of toys, games, furniture, electronics, books,
household items, holiday decorations as well as tickets to a show, concert or a
sporting event, gift certificates or a provided service are all most welcome.
Gift baskets donated by your family, neighborhood or club are also a great way
to help the auction.
This year is special in two ways. It is the 50th
anniversary of the student-run telethon.
Plus, they are very close to reaching one million dollars raised for the
Beacon Santa Fund. Wouldn’t it be great
if this happened on their anniversary!
being collected at Maynard High School during school hours and throughout the
weekend of the telethon. The WAVM students will also be happy to pick up your
donation at your home. Please call the station at 978-897-5213 for assistance.
All donations are gratefully accepted but regret
that we can only accept new items.
Free Screening of "Codegirl" at Fine
Arts Theatre, Sponsored by Yieldbot, Monday, December 14th
As you are likely aware, women currently make up a small
proportion of those working in various fields of technology including software
& App design. On Monday December 14th
The Fine Arts Theater Place is showing “CODEGIRL” free to public. This acclaimed documentary follows girls and
young women as they compete in an “APP Competition” just last year. It’s time to put the myth that girls and
women can’t do math and science as well as men to rest once and for all and
“CODEGIRL” is a great vehicle to document this point.
I urge you to check out the link below and consider
attending this terrific offering.
& Toys for Tots
Next Friday night, 12/18/15,
the Basketball Program in Partnership with the Maynard Police, will be
sponsoring a "Toys for Tots" game as our Tigers faceoff against
Littleton. Donate a toy at admission and you will receive a discounted entry
for $3. Senior citizens and non-Maynard students will receive a discounted
entry for $1.
That’s it for now.
Have a great weekend--
Principal of Maynard
