As I write this final newsletter, I am filled with so many emotions. I cannot begin to express how blessed I feel to have been given the opportunity to lead this school for 13 years. I have watched so many students come in for kindergarten (and some in preschool) and graduate not only from NES but from the High School. It has been a pleasure to be a part of their educational journey as well as sharing with them their elementary school memories. I will ALWAYS hold NES near and dear to my heart.
I am excited to being my new position on July 1st at Central Office as the Director of Curriculum for Narragansett Public Schools. In this new capacity, I will be able to continue to assist in the educational journey of all three schools! I am excited for this opportunity to serve the wonderful students and families of this district.
The new principal, Lisa Wilson, will be officially starting on July 1st. We have already started the transition process with weekly communications between each other to ensure the transition is smooth.
I wish you and your families a wonderful summer and look forward to working with you in my new position in the district.
