Mr. James Gregorski, current Principal of Gideon Welles School, has been appointed Smith Middle School Principal beginning July 1, 2017. Mr. Gregorski will replace Stephen Falcigno who has been serving as acting principal since December when Principal Donna Schilke retired. Mr. Falcigno will return to his Smith Middle School Assistant Principal position next school year. We greatly appreciate his time and efforts in stepping up to temporarily fill the principal position.

Mr. Gregorski has been a successful administrator at the middle school level, including his past service as an assistant principal at Smith Middle School. Student achievement has grown dramatically under his collaborative leadership with the exceptional staff at Gideon Welles. He will undoubtedly continue to value his partnership with the equally exceptional staff at Smith Middle School.

Mr. Scott Hurwitz will serve as acting principal at Gideon Welles School next year. Mr. Hurwitz, the current assistant principal at Gideon, has proven to be a terrific educational leader and has a bright future ahead of him in administration. Ms. Marta Krzemien will transfer from Smith Middle School as an acting assistant principal to become the Special Education Supervisor at Gideon Welles School. We know she will continue to excel in this role.
