I am pleased to announce that Ms. Purnima DeMorais has accepted the position of Principal for the Middle/High School. Ms. DeMorais has many years of school leadership experience at the elementary, middle and high school levels. Prior to transitioning into school leadership she taught at the high school level for more than ten years. Members of the principal search committee were impressed with Ms. DeMorais’ experience, credentials, engagement and responses to their rigorous questions. All members of the search committee supported her candidacy for the principal position. I am confident that Ms. DeMorais will be highly successful here.
Ms. DeMorais was able to tour the middle/high school late last week. While she was here she remarked that she is very excited to join the Quabbin Regional School District. She is looking forward to getting to know our students, their families, faculty, staff and our communities, and she can’t wait to get started. Once she is here in early July, she will schedule time over the summer to meet students and their families. We will be sharing more information about those events as soon as possible.
