Office of the Principal
Dear WVMMS Families and Friends,
I am honored to announce that I have been appointed interim principal of Warwick Veterans Memorial Middle School. I’ve been an educator for 22 years and for the last 2 years, I’ve served as the Assistant Principal of Teaching and Learning for Warwick Veterans.
I am excited to begin this school year, even though this year will be like no other we’ve experienced. Our students will begin the school year in distance learning. We will continue distance learning until we are confident and assured that we can bring all students back in a safe and healthy manner.
Our message will be the same as if we were functioning under normal circumstances. We will make connections with our students and support all of their needs. Valuable, research-based instructional practices will be the standard in our instruction. Our teachers are empathetic and sensitive to the needs of our students, especially today. Providing support and resources to our students who need them is our priority. We understand that these times are very difficult for our students and families and will provide social/emotional and academic support in any way we can.
I am truly grateful for the opportunity to be your interim principal. Together we will get through this difficult time and facilitate a student-centered learning environment that allows our kids to be successful in many ways.
I look forward to a successful school year.
Melissa L. Centracchio
