6th Grade



Dear Sixth Graders and Families,


It is my pleasure to welcome you to Groton Middle School! As we start our exciting 2022-2023 school year, I am thrilled to introduce myself as your Assistant Principal. As we embark on new adventures at GMS, I look forward to getting to know each and every one of the sixth graders so that I can effectively support their educational transition to middle school. My door is always open to students and families alike. Please reach out to me, if you have questions, concerns, or just need to brainstorm about how to best support your child.

Students thrive when their families and schools partner together to support their growth and development and I am grateful to be a part of that magic. Our learning opportunities, clubs, activities, and growth opportunities are endless.

Thank you, again, for putting your trust in me and the rest of the GMS team.
