Dear Nashoba Families,
It is with great pleasure that I announce to you that the next principal of the Mary Rowlandson Elementary School will be Scott Blanchard.
Throughout the entire search process, Mr. Blanchard distinguished himself as a highly skilled administrator who holds the needs of students close to his heart. He demonstrated his capabilities as a visionary leader with his deep understanding of teaching and learning that will lead the Mary Rowlandson Elementary School to continued growth and academic excellence.
The feedback I received from the faculty, staff and students, as well as the community, was overwhelmingly supportive of Mr. Blanchard. It was frankly a mandate that Mr. Blanchard be chosen as the next principal. I couldn't agree more. As a humble leader, his dedication and commitment to Lancaster is tremendous, and I am confident he will be an outstanding principal for our students. Please join me in congratulating Scott Blanchard as the next principal of the Mary Rowlandson Elementary School.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend.
“Be your best self. Pave your path. Impact the world.”
