NEWS: 

**FY20 School Year RANGERS CLUB - Packets will be available very soon!  Our new online registration and payment program (Community Pass) should be up and running any day now.  You will receive an email regarding the FY20 school-year registration.  You will be asked to make sure we have the correct information (taken from Infinite Campus) and will have an opportunity to let us know if corrections are needed.  Within a couple of days after that the registration form will be live for you to complete.  We apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience.  We believe this process will be well worth the wait for all of us.  Online registrations will be required for all applicants and online payments (optional) will provide you with the option of E-Check  or credit card payments for a nominal convenience/transaction fee.  We will still accept checks made out to Methuen Public Schools.  NO FEE INCREASE - 7th Year in a row!  Our staff will be able to assist you at the Central Administration Building Community Programs office and soon on-site.  We are extending the first month's registration until 8/27/19 and will endeavor to work with you all to help make this process as smooth as possible.  Like anything new we expect that it will take some getting used to for all of us.  Again, we appreciate your patience.

Once again, thank you!

RANGERS CLUB Summer Program 2019 -  Camp ends on Friday, August 16th.  We want to thank all of you for working with us during our emergency venue change from the Timony to the Marsh!  The Timony air conditioning (AC) broke down during the hottest week of the summer, with no end to the high temperatures in sight.  A quick AC replacement turn-around was impossible, so the one available school with full-service AC was the Marsh.  Many thanks to the Marsh administration and staff for all your help!  Again, thank you parents for understanding that this was in the best interest of the children and program.


FY20 21st CCLC After-School Program:   FY20 is year 3 of our high school 21st CCLC Program for MHS 9th - 11th graders - teacher, guidance, & administrator referrals only.  We are still waiting word on a potential FY20 Tenney/Timony grant.


21st Century Homework Club FY20- To be determined.
