Hello Warwick Veterans Memorial Middle School Community,
It is with excitement and gratitude that I introduce myself as the Principal of Warwick Veterans Memorial Middle School. I have had the pleasure of working in education as a Special Education teacher, a District Level Instructional Coach, and as an administrator in Warwick for the past two years. I began my career in Warwick as the Assistant Principal of Climate & Culture at Winman Middle School. In August of 2020, I was asked to be the Secondary Principal of in person learning for the K-12+ Vets Special Services program. On December 1, 2020, I was appointed to the position of Principal of WVMMS.
2020 is a school year unlike any ever experienced in education. The majority of our students and teachers are working remotely, testing their technological skills and exhibiting a willingness to think outside of the box and persevere with the challenges that are presented while working from a distance. We have a team of talented, experienced, well trained, and enthusiastic teachers and support staff who are dedicated to providing our students with the best educational experience possible during their years at Warwick Veterans Memorial Middle School. Our diverse student body and educational opportunities (whether in person or remotely) along with our excellent staff combine to create a supportive learning environment that allows the students to adjust to the experience, challenges, freedoms, and expectations of a secondary school environment. Our talented and dedicated teachers and support staff will continue to work with their students to build relationships whether we work in person or remotely through Distance Learning. WVMMS’s team of support professionals is always available to support students’ social and emotional needs.
Warwick Veterans Memorial Middle School is fortunate to have an administrative team with diverse backgrounds and unique leadership experiences and opportunities in public education. All members of our administrative team have served in multiple leadership capacities during our careers and those opportunities will enhance our leadership team here at WVMMS. With our combined educational and leadership experiences come a wealth of knowledge that each of us brings to the table. These experiences, background knowledge, creativity, and skills will continue to enhance our school’s well-rounded Educational Leadership Team.
I am grateful for the opportunity to work with all members of the Warwick Vets School Community and to provide the best education experiences possible for our students. At Vets, we will continue to focus on our students as we grow and develop each individual as a learner. Our student body will work diligently to expand their educational experiences through adolescence during these crucial years of development whether it be through Distance Learning or in person instruction.
Lastly, thank you for entrusting us with your children.
Mr. Adam Heywood
