• Memo from Superintendent

    June 30, 2021

    Dear Members of the Marlborough Elementary School Community,

    My name is Holly Hageman, and I will begin as Superintendent for the Marlborough Public Schools tomorrow! This is an exciting role, serving the community’s school, one which is committed to excellence for students. Engaging foundational and enriching academics where children inquire, solve problems, collaborate and create within a stimulating and supportive learning environment is the foundation of my leadership focus and purpose.

    Prior to joining the MES team, I served as the Superintendent for a Prek-12 regional school district, as an Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction as well as for Personnel, as an Elementary and Middle School Principal, and I was a Science teacher prior to becoming a school administrator. I am passionate about high-quality curriculum delivered by caring and highly skilled educators within a healthy and happy school climate. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve Marlborough, partnering with the Board, the administration and staff of MES, parents and children to support and build upon the wonderful reputation which exists at MES. As I have visited over the past few weeks, walking through the beautiful facility, I can feel the joy in the air.

    As I enter the district, I will listen and learn through stakeholder meetings to understand the opportunities, challenges, needs, and goals as seen through the eyes and experiences of the school staff, parents, Board members, community leaders, and of course, the children. I thank you in advance for engaging with me in this process, which will also help me to establish relationships and rapport so I can best serve the district.

    I would like to thank Dr. Sklarz for helping me in this transition and I wish him all the best. I would also like to thank Cherie Celmer for her assistance as well, helping to onboard our new Central Office Assistant, Carmela Monte, as Cherie is also retiring after serving the district magnificently for many years.

    I hope you have a wonderful summer and I look forward to meeting you. I will be back in touch in the coming weeks. 


    Holly B. Hageman
