Meadowbrook Farms has new leader

June 24, 2012

EAST GREENWICH — Sitting in front of the members of the East Greenwich School Committee on Tuesday night near the stage at Cole Middle School, Neil Marcaccio looked at the members the same way as he did at a slew of presents underneath a Christmas tree as a child.

Two NHS teachers retire after 20 years of service

June 22, 2012

NARRAGANSETT—The halls of Narragansett High School have seen many students come and go, graduating into the adult world and facing challenges that have never before been met. A quiet indebtedness remains, however, when those same students hearken back to the lessons that they received during their high school years. Only then do they often realize that their teachers had influenced them in ways of which they were never aware. NHS will lose two such stalwarts in English teacher Jean Nardone and Guidance Specialist/Social Studies teacher Robert Shuman, who are retiring this year.
