Epping Middle School (EMS)

Epping Middle School has several wonderful end of year traditions that have been exciting for students, families and staff!

Welcome letter From Principal Coby Troidl

Dear Epping Middle School students and families,

Welcome back to school!  Your teachers, the staff, Mrs. Gualtieri and I are so excited to have you back with us at Epping Middle School!  We simply can’t wait to meet our new sixth graders and to see all of you who are returning!

There have been a few changes at the middle school over the summer. We are excited to welcome two new teachers to our staff who will be working on our sixth and seventh grade teams.

Mrs. Linsay Kaplan will be teaching seventh grade English Language Arts. A native of NH and a graduate of UNH, she comes to us from The American School in Milan, Italy where she has been teaching for the last three years!

Mrs. Juliana Flintosh was nominated and has accepted our Reading Specialist position that was open as a result of Mrs. Karen Page’s retirement. We are very happy to take full advantage of Mrs. Flintosh’s expertise and skill in supporting our middle school students!

Mr. Paul Lewis, our sixth grade Science teacher, moved up to the high school to teach a number of upper level Science classes. We are fortunate to add Ms. Kaley Weeks to our sixth grade team as she comes to us with much STEM experience that will surely enhance our sixth grade science curriculum!

Mr. Kulis will be filling in as long-term substitute for Mrs. Mora who will be on maternity leave until the second week of November. Mr. Kulis taught for many years in the Haverhill Public School system.

We are all looking forward to seeing all of you on September 4th! I ask that you come with an open mind to learn all that you can, a willing heart to make great new friends and most of all, the spirit of adventure to try new things that will expand your thinking, your interests and imagination!

From Mrs. Gualtieri, all the staff and me, welcome back! We will see you on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 at 7:25 am.
