As we wrap up another successful term of electives, I thought I would share some of my observations running the Radio Controlled (RC) elective. Given the opportunity to try something new, I learned that boys can do anything. In looking to next year, my goal is get girls involved in the RC elective, as I am sure that their abilities are every bit as impressive as the boys' demonstrated this spring.

Welcome to The Rectory Middle School, a community of educators committed to bringing out the best in each of our students. Rectory prides itself on taking every child where they are and nurturing them to realize their fullest potential. We do this through a dynamic program with student engagement as the cornerstone of our educational philosophy. In the classroom, through the arts, and on the athletic field, students are encouraged to stretch their intellectual, creative, and athletic limits. The result is a transformation that allows us to send forth into our world a confident, inquisitive, and independent global citizen.
Please feel free to contact me or inquire online regarding the above, and any other questions you may have about Rectory’s Middle School.

Mrs. Levesque took her ninth-grade language skills class on a field trip to Killingly Historical Society. Her purpose was to encourage them to imagine, question, discover, and engage with the process of doing research and discovering facts. Read about their adventure.
First implemented during the 2014-2015 academic year, the Capstone provides an opportunity for our ninth graders to explore, and consider solutions to, issues that are present in today's society. We are so pleased to see so many of our passionate 9th graders involved in reviewing current issues and caring about the future of our world and society. Future leaders are being made here at Rectory!
