EASTCONN Where Learning Comes to Life

Welcome to Quinebaug Middle College (QMC)!

Dear Quinebaug Middle College Community,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!  It promises to be a year unlike any other as we return to school amidst a global pandemic.  I am confident that the uncertainties and challenges we face will be overcome when we work together to support each other and are guided by the mission and core values of QMC.

As the interim principal for QMC this fall, my goal is to lead through listening and learning from this vibrant community.  In seeking inspiration, I did not have to go any further than the front of our building where QMC’s core values are on display- Kindness, Respect, and Inspiration!  These core values will serve to be our guiding light now, more than ever before.  Through kindness, we will have compassion for each other and empathy for the unique challenges each of us will face.  Through respect, we will value our differences and rely on the strengths of others.  And as a result of our mutual kindness and respect, I am confident that we will inspire each other to rise above these challenges and persevere to achieve the hopes and dreams we hold for ourselves and for our school.

With our QMC core values and mission as a solid foundation, we will achieve the three main goals for this year:

  • Safety
  • Social and Emotional Well Being
  • Learning and Academic Growth

The talented and dedicated QMC staff and student leaders have been hard at work this summer building the plans to achieve these goals.  And while our daily schedules and learning experiences will not look like they did in years past, they are designed to ensure we can achieve our three goals.  And through kindness, respect, and inspiration, I am confident that we will not only endure this challenging time but thrive as a result.

May we all find inspiration from each other this year!
