August, 15, 2019 Dear Maynard School Family, I would like to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year, and am honored to have been chosen as the Interim Superintendent of Schools in Maynard. I want to thank the members of the community and the district for the warm reception I’ve received since being selected. I am excited to begin this journey with the Maynard School District. As an educator for the past twenty-nine years, it is my core belief that all students are afforded educational opportunities to ensure success academically and personally. We may face many obstacles in our journey together, but I can assure you that I am committed to building community, deepening collaboration, and improving communication. In addressing these three tenets, we will have the ability to create a nurturing environment for staff and students, balance fiscal responsibility, and strengthen our educational programs. I look forward to meeting all of our dedicated teachers, staff, and committed families. I am especially excited to meet all of your children and hear what they are interested in so that we can provide them with a high quality educational experience. I look forward to seeing and talking with you within the community. In closing, I would like to invite each of you to a Superintendent’s Meet and Greet at the Maynard High School Cafeteria from on August 21, 2019 from 5:30-6:30, snacks will be provided. I look forward to meeting you. Respectfully, Mary Jane Rickson, M.Ed.
