Welcome Letter from Maynard Site Director
Dear Maynard BASEC Families,
Welcome to BASEC! We are so happy to be a part of the Maynard community and are very excited for the first day of school. My name is Michael Clark, and I am the site director for both Fowler Middle School and Green Meadow Elementary School programs.
A bit about me: I’m originally from Vienna, Virginia where I grew up for most of my life and earned an undergraduate degree from the College of William & Mary. I’ve lived in the greater Boston area for almost 5 years now and am happy to call it home. I’ve worked with youth in multiple settings and ages throughout my career, including AmeriCorps NCCC, Amnesty International USA, and with BASEC at Chenery Middle School in Belmont. This work led me to continue my education at the Heller School of Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University where I earned an MBA in Social Impact and an MA in Sustainable International Development. In my free time I enjoy biking around town, hiking/camping, playing soccer, and watching movies!
I’m really looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know the kiddos. We have lots of fun planned, including lots of outdoor play and sports, art and STEM projects, games, and more. All of us at BASEC are eagerly awaiting the first day. We are also so grateful to welcome back former EXCEL/FASC staff to our team, so look out for some familiar faces!
Our goal at BASEC is to build positive relationships with each student that support their academic, social, and emotional needs. We know that the last year has impacted us all, particularly our youth. BASEC is taking every step we can to ensure that youth and staff alike are as safe as possible.
We want to welcome you all with an open heart and thank you for letting us join your wonderful community. Over the coming weeks you will be learning more details about our policies and procedures. Keep an eye out for those emails from me, but in the meantime enjoy the last few weeks of summer!
Michael A. Clark
