Dear Parents,
Don't Miss the Fowler Fair!
​The Annual Fowler School Fair will be held today, Friday, May 13 from 3-6 pm in the Fowler School parking lot. This family-friendly afternoon will feature a dunk tank, bouncy house, train ride, raffle items, plant sale, food, and much more! This annual fundraiser is hosted by the Fowler staff to raise student scholarship funds for school events such as field trips, Nature's Classroom, activity fees, and more. ​All are welcome to attend - rain or shine!


Congratulations to our Do Right students of the week....Hazelyn Aroian, Hannah Carlisle, Brooke Murphey, Carolyn Norris, Melissa O'Leary, Kate Rober, Lily Waguespack.


The School Safety Committee of the Maynard Public Schools, a comprehensive group consisting of representatives from the schools and the town's public safety officials, has been meeting regularly for the past year.  During the last several months, a community information evening has been held and all teachers have been trained in the ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter & Evacuate) protocols.  We are planning to have an all-school practice drill at Fowler School in June.


During the next few weeks teachers will be discussing safety measures with students, focusing on age-appropriate responses in preparation for our whole school drill in June. Discussions will include enhanced lockdown measures and evacuation procedures that can be used in case of an emergency. Materials that have been developed are age appropriate and have been designed to enhance the ability of all of us to stay calm, informed, and safe should a threatening situation ever  occur in the school.


Please feel free to contact Mr. Mela if you would like more information about the ALICE program.


Congratulations to the students who performed or contributed so well in the school play last weekend.  The students were well-prepared and their hard work and enthusiasm was evident throughout the show.  The play was a lot of fun and fortunately justice prevailed.

A special thanks to Mrs. Gustavson who volunteered to direct the play this year and did an incredible job.  Thank you to Mrs. Boutin who also supported the play.

Here is a nice letter from a grandparent who watched the play:

"Dear Mr. Mela,
On Saturday I drove down from Maine to see my granddaughter, perform in the play at Fowler School.  I just wanted to let you that it was quite delightful.  The actors were well prepared, the play appropriate for their age, yet funny for all ages, and the amount of hard work was obvious. My understanding is that this was headed up by a parent volunteer.  I don't have a way to reach her, but would you please pass on my thanks for all the work she put into this.  True education involves the arts and to have parents involved in such an added bonus!  Great job to all involved!"
