Latham welcomes maaps’ Jim Daiute to campus

February 18, 2019

Our Children’s Services team often welcomes visitors to campus for tours – there’s no better way for prospective students and their families to experience life at Latham. But we also welcome donors, community members, and colleagues from other schools to visit our Brewster campus. We recently welcomed a colleague from maaps (the Massachusetts Association of 766 Approved Private Schools), an association which represents 81 maaps member schools including Latham.

Jim Daiute, the association’s Director of Government Affairs and Communications, chose a cold Friday in December to drive to the Cape from Boston for a visit. Jim was given a tour by Latham President Anne McManus, a past President of maaps’ Board of Directors and current member of its Executive and PR Committees. As you can see from the photo collage, Jim felt right at home at Latham.

“I had a wonderful time touring the Children’s Program. The staff and students were extremely welcoming and all so proud of their school. I was glad I was able to join some students for lunch, and my daughter loved the Latham Works soap I brought home for my wife.” Pictured here, the tour of Latham School included visits to classrooms (with Brittni Kliment and Danny Anderson), dormitories (with Neomie Laughren), the Latham Works vocational program (with Melissa Bertrand), and the Training Center where new staff participated in Orientation.

We are grateful to maaps for their commitment to representing our member schools who serve thousands of children with special needs from Massachusetts, as well as other states and countries.
