Dear 6th Grade Parents and Guardians,,
I am pleased to announce that Mary MacDonald has been appointed the new Principal of Mount Greylock Regional School effective July 1, 2013.
Mary has been a wonderful resource to us this year serving as the tri-district Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Coordinator. Mary, a MA Certified Principal, has spent almost two decades in education as a public school teacher in New York City and Lenox, as well as our own Mount Greylock. More recently she has worked as an Administrator where her insights, hard work, and guidance have made her integral to our leadership team–assuming responsibility as a Central Office Administrator for all aspects of curriculum, teaching, and assessment. Her broad knowledge of high quality instructional methodologies has been an asset and allowed her to be a supportive role model when working with our principals, department leaders, and teachers. Mary’s experience and communication style personify the attributes of a capable, forward-thinking leader. Mary will continue in her current role through the end of this school year. Christopher Barnes will continue to do an outstanding job as the Acting Principal at Mount Greylock through June 30th, 2013, ensuring continuity and seamless transition. The Mount Greylock staff and I are delighted to welcome Mary to her new position. Please join us in welcoming Ms. MacDonald – you are invited to attend a drop-in Meet & Greet with Mary. We will be hosting this event at the end of the work day, on May 16th, in the Meeting Room from 5:30 to 7:00. Hope to see you there!
