Region – Eleven new staff members recently underwent orientation at Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School (AVRTHS) in Marlborough in anticipation of the school opening for all staff Aug. 26. As part of the process of learning about the school, the culture and the sending communities, Superintendent Mary Jo Nawrocki suggested a tour of the seven in-district communities (Marlborough, Hudson, Northborough, Southborough, Westborough, Maynard and Berlin) with stops at some of the projects the students have completed.

The Marlborough Olde Fire Station was one particular project that got a lot of attention when the new members heard that AVRTHS students had redone the wiring, plumbing, interior walls, paneling and painting for the city.

"Our new staff members were impressed that we are able to do a service for some of our local communities by taking on projects that save the municipality money while giving the students real onthe job training," Nawrocki said. "It is definitely a winwin situation."

The gazebo in Northborough, the Boat House in Marlborough and the Town Hall in Maynard were some other stops on the tour that were highlighted.
