A Message from the Principal's Desk:

Greetings, members of the Kingsway community! Kingsway Regional Middle School is off to an outstanding 2019-20 school year. The seventh grade tours that took place in August were very well attended and helped tremendously in transitioning our seventh graders to the middle school. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend Back to School Night on September 12th. If you were unable to attend, a link for the Back to School presentation can be found on the middle school website under the ‘For Parents’ tab. We look forward to a productive October as our school focuses on Respect throughout the month.


Sincerely,

Brian Tonelli

#1Dragon Family: Kingsway Regional Middle School is proud to announce the continuation of our climate and culture initiative entitled, #1DragonFamily. Our #1DragonFamily committee has met on two occasions this summer to map out several activities, guest speakers, and school-wide assemblies that will be instrumental in emphasizing the importance of accepting differences while promoting respect among the entire school community throughout the 2019-20 school year. In addition to the monthly activities and themes, we will be continuing our after school club entitled, Dragon SPARK which will serve as an opportunity to get our students further involved with this effort. We are extremely excited about launching this program, and we are certain that all students are sure to benefit from our commitment to this focus area. Our first full school assembly, which is focused on Respect and Internet Safety, is scheduled for October 2, 2019.
