Principal's Message

The spring is an exciting time for our students, especially with all of the educational field trips that are planned. Our adventures include a multi-day trip to Washington D.C., a historic walk on the Boston Freedom Trail, team building on a high ropes course, a world language day trip to NYC, and many local outings! These trips would not be possible without the generosity of the board of education, our parents, and MPAC volunteers.


We also have several exciting end-of-the-year concerts. Our singers and musicians will play in a series of spring concerts. I’ll send out the details of the dates and times when they become available. Please visit our website often to remain current on all of our exciting events.


In addition to the grade level celebrations that will occur next month, we will hold the 8th grade promotion ceremony on Thursday June 15th at 6:00pm. This will be in the gymnasium rain or shine followed by an outdoor reception. Please join us for the celebration.


I would like to provide a reminder that our students will have an early dismissal day on the last day of school, Friday, June 16th. Sixth, seventh, and eighth grade will be dismissed at 12:10; the fourth and fifth grade will be dismissed at 1:10. School lunch will not be served on the last day of school.


With the school year coming to a close, I would like to thank everyone for their support of our middle school. I would especially like to thank MPAC for their fundraising efforts and their help with our events ranging from first day to the book fair to the academic banquet. The students benefit tremendously from the close home to school connection that our community enjoys.
