Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at Florence M. Gaudineer Middle School! I am excited to return to FMG and have the privilege of serving as your new principal. This year marks the start of my 27th year in Springfield, serving as a teacher, supervisor, and building administrator from grades pre-k -12 during my tenure. I am excited to bring my experience to FMG and lead a talented and dedicated group of educators to provide our students with the opportunity to succeed academically and in their social and emotional growth.

I am thrilled to see so many familiar faces, and I would like to welcome our new families to our FMG community. Whether you are joining us in grade 6 or are new to Springfield, I am eager to begin working together in a future full of opportunities. I thank Mr. Timothy Keilty and the FMG staff for their hard work planning and preparing for the 2023-2024 school year. 

We have many exciting programs we will be introducing this year, such as additional academic electives in the Arts, Sciences, and other parts of the curriculum. We will continue our mission to review and develop new programs that provide meaningful student experiences.  

The FMG school community has much to be proud of with its rich history of success and the promise of an exciting future. I thank the FMG school community for their hard work and dedication over the past few years.

I welcome our parents and guardians to join our PTA and further our partnership with our families. The PTA is a great way to become involved in your child's learning and school community.

This school year holds great promise for our community. Please visit our school website to explore the different areas of Florence M. Gaudineer Middle School. I am looking forward to our partnership in our student's success!

Best Regards,

Ronald Slate
