NASHOBA's Mission: Educate All Students To Their Full Potential

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome back to what is shaping up to be an exciting school year.  We have spent the summer months preparing for your children and are anxiously awaiting, opening the doors on September 2nd. 

Bus runs have been loaded on to our website and I encourage you to review as some may have changed from the previous year.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact the bus company at 978-365-3027.

Each year brings an opportunity to start fresh and grow our potential to be career and college ready in an ever changing world. I pledge our support in building the partnerships necessary to ensure your child has the guidance, education, enrichment and stewardship toward informed decision making.  At each grade our educators are ready to take the journey with you and your student.

Our K-5 students will see new math materials as our teachers look at two new resources to align with our curriculum.  There will be updated educator websites that enhance the communication for all and our eighth grade students will be the first ever to participate in our one to one initiative using Chromebooks.  This year all of our educators will be examing technology tools that fit their curricula and where best to embed them as they continue our work of updating our units of study.  Along with technology tools, all of our educators will be learning why, how, and what types of writing can extend learning which will certainly enrich their units of study.

The district has a number of new leaders.  At The Center School our new Principal is Ross Mulkerin.   Luther Burbank School has a familiar face in a new role as Principal, Laura Friend.  Her former role as Assistant Principal has been filled by Scott Blanchard.  Florence Sawyer School also has a new Assistant Principal, Cheryl Temple.  Each school has a number of new staff and I encourage you to look at your student's school web page to learn them.  The pages can be found off our main website at

We are ending August with our Eductors' Opening Day on August 31st, teachers and staff work with building administrators on Tuesday, September 1st, and then students arrive on Wednesday, September 2nd.  The high school has a different schedule for Freshman and Upper Classroom, so please review these times on the website.  Additionally, the pre-school and kindergarten classrooms have a different schedule which you will be apprised of by the classroom teachers.  

As always there are many things going on in our schools and it's all in preparation to make this year a memorable one for your student and your family.  

Looking forward to a great year!

Michael L. Wood
