My name is John LaPerriere and I am immensely honored to join the staff, students, and families of GRMS as your new Principal. I am passionate about education and look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with a vigorous, engaging, and high quality educational experience. As a parent of two girls ages 17 and 25, I understand the value of a strong home to school connection. I believe that working together we can meet the social, emotional, and academic needs of all students.
This summer I have been getting to know the building, the community, and the educational goals of MSAD 11. I’ve learned that Gardiner Regional Middle School is a community where strong connections are made between home and school, and where staff members are committed to developing the whole child.
Professionally, I have dedicated the past 12 year to educating the students of every community I have served. Along with the teachers and staff, I will work tirelessly to continue the legacy of success established here at GRMS, by building relationships with parents, students, staff, and community members. All of us at Gardiner Regional Middle School are excited to begin what promises to be a great year. As Principal it is important for me that everyone that steps through our doors, are excited to be here. Finally, my door is always open and welcome your input. I look forward to working with you to provide the best middle school education for our students.
