Maplewood Estates Goes “New School”


Maplewood Estates celebrates the opening of the new Rogers Middle School with gift card for Maplewood Estates residents/students who will be attending the new school.

The start of a school year is an adjustment for most families. If you just moved into a new house into a new town, it can be an even more challenging transition. In an effort to help ease the transition into the new school year, Maplewood Estates, a single‐family home community located off Webster Street in Rockland, Massachusetts, is awarding new residents with children attending the new middle school, the John W. Rogers Middle School, with a $150 Staples gift card.

“The Rockland school system is one of the bigger benefits for families moving into Maplewood Estates, particularly if you have children that are middle school age and can attend the brand new school and later the soon‐to‐be‐refurbished high school, said Bisher Hashem, Trustee of Maple Realty Trust, the developer of Maplewood Estates. “With all the expenses involved in moving into a new home, the Staples card is just our way of making sure each new resident of Maplewood Estates who is going to the new school has what they need to get started.”

In addition to the gift card, Maplewood Estates will also give $2,000 in additional upgrades for new residents of the development who sign a purchase‐and‐sale agreement between July 1 and August 15 and have children attending the new middle school. The Rockland Public School system starts school on Tuesday, September 4.

“We’re extremely proud of the new Middle School and the work being done on the high  school,” said Rockland Superintendent John Retchless of the $86 million dollar project. “We feel the new school will improve the quality of services we can provide to our current students and be a very attractive draw to the Town of Rockland for families considering a move to the area.”

Construction on the high school portion is anticipated to be concluded by December 2012.
