Welcome to Abbot-Downing School!

Administrative Assistant: Mary Wyatt
Office Hours During the School Year are Monday - Friday 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM
 
 
 
Summertime Greetings!
     It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself to you as the new principal at Abbot-Downing School! 

     I have been involved in education for nearly two decades, initially as an elementary school teacher in Derry, New Hampshire.  For the last four years I've been the Assistant Principal, then most recently, the Acting Principal in the Pentucket Regional School District in Massachusetts.  As New Hampshire native, I am thrilled to be back in my home state with the Abbot-Downing team.  I'm certain that together we can continue the journey to ensure each child  grows socially, emotionally and academically.

    Over the past few weeks, I've been meeting with families, staff and community members to find out just what makes Abbot-Downing School such a unique and special place to teach, learn and grow.  As I chat with students and parents, one word repeatedly comes to mind... CONNECTIONS!  It's clear that Abbot-Downing is a place where families and educators feel connected, all working together to help students achieve success. 
    
     Thank you to all who have extended such a warm welcome.  I look forward to meeting each of you, and to the excitement that the New School Year offers!

     Below are some important August dates for your calendars...
  • A letter to the families of incoming Kindergarten students will be mailed by Friday, August 8.
  • Class lists will be posted at the front entrance on Monday, August 18.
  • An Ice Cream Social will be held on Monday, August 25 from 5:30 - 7:00PM.  Please come by and enjoy an ice cream from Miss Polly's Ice Cream Truck (courtesy of the PTO).  I look forward to this opportunity to introduce myself to you and your family!
         and most importantly ...
  • Tuesday, August 26 is the First Day of School!
My Best,
Kathleen Riordan
