NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The music has ended and the team, at least for the interim, is in place at Drury High School.

Timothy Callahan, a school district veteran who has been assistant principal at Drury, will take the lead as interim principal. His temporary promotion created another vacancy, which is now being filled by Molly Meczywor, a teacher and former athletic director.

Callahan replaces Amy Meehan, who was named earlier this summer as principal of Colegrove Park Elementary School after Shelly Fachini moved to become special education coordinator for early childhood.

Superintendent Barbara Malkas said last month that the search for a permanent principal would occur later in

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — At Hillside Cemetery, William College students set to work straightening out gravestones and scrubbing them clean.

On Main Street, they were painting the vintage-looking light poles shiny black and a crosswalk in bright colors. Still more were over at Christopher Columbus Drive clearing brush around the Hoosic River.

The green T-shirt clad students on Friday morning were participating in the Leading Mind program, one of a half-dozen "EphVentures" designed to introduce the class of 2020 to the bucolic Williamstown college and the Northern Berkshires.

"We welcome all these students to Williamstown and we call it the Purple Bubble," said

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Clarksburg School will hold its annual back to school evening event on Sept. 21, but it will be a little different than in years past.

Usually, teachers would give a presentation on that night and set up conferences for the parent night in December.

"The teachers didn't think seeing parents once a year in December was enough," Principal Tara Barnes told the School Committee last week.

Instead, they asked that two parent conference nights be set up, one on Oct. 20 and another on March 23.

"They felt it was more meaningful," Barnes said. "But I thought it was important to do a back-to-school event. ...
