7th Grade



Dear Incoming Seventh Grade Families,

Welcome to the 2020 - 2021 school year!  I am delighted to welcome you back to the new Groton Middle School.  It is truly an honor for me to serve as the Assistant Principal of the 7th grade class and the school’s Athletic Director.  I am privileged to work with an outstanding staff to make it a smooth transition for our students during this uncertain time.

Central Office and middle school staff have been working hard all summer to plan for a safe opening of school and to implement best practices to mitigate the risks associated with Covid-19. Our classrooms have been modified to increase social distancing, signage has been installed throughout the building to help guide students.  Mask breaks, hand washing, and opportunities to access outdoor learning spaces will be a priority while students are in school.

We are proud of our beautiful new school and have high expectations for each and every student.  We have simple, positively stated expectation that apply to all school building areas across the day.  They are being SAFE, OPEN-MINDED, ACCOUNTABLE, RESPONSIBLE/RESPECTFUL, SOAR!  Our staff will serve as examples by continuously modeling the expected behaviors.

I am excited about the possibilities that this school year will bring and proud to be part of the Groton Middle School Falcon family.  I look forward to a great new year, whether we are working from home, or together at Groton Middle School. 

 Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concern.  My email is:  jkotecki@groton.k12.ct.us
