Spotlight on Seekonk Schools


Seekonk Public Schools Superintendent Rich Drolet announced Monday that Special Olympics Massachusetts recognized Hurley Middle School as an official Unified Champion School. “HMS is being acknowledged and honored with a banner and certificate for their commitment to inclusion and continuous efforts to provide opportunities and activities for all,” Drolet continued. “I would like to acknowledge (Principal Alexis) Bouchard, as well as Unified Basketball Coach Ms. Skodras and Unified Club Coordinator Mrs. Armoush for their efforts. Over the years, the Hurley community has been committed to facilitating school wide Warrior Pride Acceptance Days, where students and staff wear blue in awareness of their core values ‘Be Kind’ and ‘Be  Respectful’ of “The Warrior Way.”

For the second year in a row, Seekonk High School Assistant Principal Matt Bosh led and coordinated a leaf raking/yard cleaning volunteer event, in which some staff, parents and many high school students raked
and clean the yards of Seekonk Veterans, or seniors in need. 13 yards were raked with 17 adults and 151 students participating. The event was held on Saturday, November 19th.

The School District has also advertised for two elementary educator positions. One position is for a full time special education teacher at Aitken Elementary School and the other position is for a district-wide elementary adjustment counselor. “These positions have been added to meet some newly identified needs this year that we’ve seen especially at the lower elementary level,” Drolet explained. “We hope to have people in place for these new positions no later than when we come back on January 3rd after the winter break. (The district business administrator) Jill Brilhante and I are working together to see what line items have been under-expended from this year’s budget to fund these new positions.”
