We are very happy your children will be attending P.M.S. next year!  We have compiled information on this page for you to read and review with your children. 

Below, you will find attachments of the most recent information we are sharing with you regarding fifth grade students transitioning to PMS.  While this is information is geared toward our incoming sixth grade students and families, please know there is some general information that all students and their families will find helpful.

If you are new to the School District, please be sure to contact the Guidance Office to arrange to pick up a Registration Folder (401-710-7500 ext. 2240, Mrs. Lavoie).


We want you to be comfortable about your children attending Ponaganset Middle School , so if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
