Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year. We’re excited for students to return to school. Our Orientation Program for students entering grades seven and nine will take place on Thursday, August 29th. All students will report to school on Tuesday, September 3rd. September 3rd will be an early dismissal at 12:20 for all students. Please visit the Masconomet District’s Website for a full version of the District’s 2019-2020 Calendar.
I would like to thank the entire Masconomet Community for the incredibly warm reception I have received over the past two months. I couldn’t have asked for a better transition into the role of Superintendent. Since July 1st, I’ve met with over 70 members of the Masconomet Community, including parents, teachers, support staff, administrators, school committee members and town officials to learn all about the Masconomet Regional School District. Through this fall, I will continue this process of learning what people love about Masconomet and what they think we could be doing better. If you’d like to be a part of the inteview process, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I plan on using these interviews, along with a review of the District’s foundational documents and observations of classrooms, to complete a “State of the Schools” Report, which I will present to the School Committee and Masconomet Community in December. This document will become the basis for developing a Strategic Blueprint Document that will provide a roadmap for achieving the aspirations outlined in the District’s Vision 2025 document.
Finally, I would like to welcome two new members of the District Leadership Team. Jeff Sands has joined the District in the role of Assistant Superintendent for Operations and Finance. Jeff joins us after six years as the Assistant Superintendent for Administration and Finance at the Hamilton-Wenahm regional School District. I would also like to introduce Jim Dillon as the Interim Principal of Masconomet Middle School. Many of you have already gotten to know Jim as an 8th Grade Science Teacher at Masconomet. I’m excited to have both Jeff and Jim join the Leadership Team!
