Welcome to HMS
Welcome to the 2022-23 School Year!
I would like to welcome you to what promises to be a great school year at Hopkinton Middle School. As the new principal, please know that I will work diligently to provide a supportive and safe learning environment for your students. I look forward to partnering with you to provide such an environment.
I love school. The energy and enthusiasm that students bring each day is what keeps us going as educators. We appreciate your support of students outside of school so that when they arrive they are ready to learn. The mission of the Hopkinton Public Schools is to learn, create, and achieve together. As the new Principal at HMS, I look forward to doing just that; working together to create the optimal learning environment for all students.
Also joining the administrative team this year is Assistant Principal Pat Nash. Pat brings many years of administrative experience from his years as Assistant Principal of Gibbons Middle School in Westborough. Pat’s background also includes teaching both math and special education. He will support students in Grades 7 and 8, and Assistant Principal Ann Benbenek will support students in Grade 6.
