8th Grade





Dear Eighth Graders and Families,

Happy New Year! As 2022 gets underway, I would like to thank you all for the warm welcome to the Groton Middle School team.  A new calendar year always brings with it the potential for newness - new experiences, new adventures, and of course, new challenges. And we know that 2022 is bound to send all of those things our way! As we embark on the second half of the school year, I am excited to get to know each and every one of the eighth graders so that I can effectively support their educational journey towards high school. This is an exciting time! 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 eager to be a part of that magic. Thank you again for putting your trust in me and the rest of the GMS team. I look forward to getting to know each of you in 2022.
