A Message from the Principal's Desk:

The month of March was certainly a busy one at Kingsway Regional Middle School, and the students took front and center stage in all the activities! The second annual Floor Hockey Tournament was a huge success with Nick Rosato, Gianni Pacitti, and Connor McMahon taking home the championship. All the proceeds from the tournament went to supporting our mentoring program. Our 20th annual KRMS Talent Show left the crowd in amazement. A wide array of talent was surely on display that evening, and the students put in hours of work in order to pull off a flawless show. Our Spring Instrumental Concert and our KRMS Spring Chorus Concert each left the crowd desperately wanting more as they both mixed upbeat spring tunes with classic hits.

April looks to be just as busy at KRMS as our outdoor spring intramurals take full swing Additionally, our first ever Julie Riggi Walk-a-Thon and our annual 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament will be held after school later in the month. Please encourage your student to get involved in the action!
