Raise The Bar

I am very excited to introduce several new and familiar administrators to the leadership team for this year:  Director of Curriculum and Assessment, Dr. Marlene Correia, Director of Student Services, Ellen Harrington, Freetown Elementary School Principal, Michael Ward, Assawompset Elementary School Principal, Bethany Pineault, and GRAIS Principal, Dr. Elizabeth Sullivan.  In addition we have hired over 25 new employees to strengthen our high functioning teaching staff at all five schools.    

In addition to our hiring new staff members, we have had a very busy summer with capital projects, increased security on the main campus, and upgraded technology at all five schools to name just a few of our initiatives.  The GRAIS pool project timeline has pushed out into the start of the school year, but we are confident that it will not disrupt the learning process and the project will be complete before our school teams start up their seasons.                                                                                               

       Our next school committee meeting for the 2016-17 school year will be Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at Apponequet Regional High School beginning at 6:30 p.m.  I appreciate your support for all our schools and I look forward to our continued drive toward excellence.  The summer vacation is almost over, please enjoy the remaining days ! I have attached the 2016-17 school calendar for planning purposes. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call at 508-923-2000 ext. 1703 or e-mail me at
