Dear Students, Families, and Staff Members,

Last evening the Board of Education appointed Mr. Jason Maziarz to the position of principal at Griswold Middle School. The Board also appointed Ms. Louise Adamow to the position of assistant principal at GMS. Both appointments will become effective July 1, 2022. The Board made these personnel decisions due to the impending retirements (June 30, 2022) of the current GMS administrative team, consisting of principal Rick Watson and assistant principal Mary Jane "Bitsy" Skelly. Mr. Maziarz, who is currently serving as the principal at Moser School, will be returning to GMS where he worked as a social studies teacher and assistant principal before taking on other leadership opportunities in Rocky Hill. Ms. Adamow, who is currently working as the assistant principal at West Hill School, will also be returning to GMS, where she served previously as a world languages teacher and team leader. 

I am confident that Mr. Maziarz and Ms. Adamow will transition seamlessly into their new roles and continue to provide GMS with strong, stable, and effective leadership. The Board and our district leadership team will begin the hiring process for their replacements within the next few days. Please join me in congratulating Mr. Maziarz and Ms. Adamow on their new positions, and in wishing Mr. Watson and Ms. Skelly all the best as they look forward to retirement at the conclusion of the school year. 

Respectfully,

Mark Zito, Superintendent of Schools
