Recognizing the diverse needs and uniqueness of the early adolescent, Hale Middle School provides our students with authentic, creative learning opportunities that meet each student's physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs, allowing them to maximize their potential, and preparing them to be successful in future education. Through a climate of respect and inclusiveness, curricula that go beyond the traditional academic offerings, effective communication between all members of the school community, and the use of cutting edge educational techniques, we strive to educate the whole child. Our success will result in mature, independent, confident learners, who have the tools necessary for success in their further education as well as in their roles as productive members of their community.

Principal's Message

Hello Hale Families,

Students and staff are settling into the new school year nicely. Please check in with your child and ensure that they are feeling good about the new year. If you or your child have concerns, contact me directly and I will work to resolve them as best as I can. In order to support communication please follow me on Twitter @hale_middle. Please consider signing up for the Remind app. You can do this two different ways:

  1. With this link: (this works best if done from a smartphone)
  2. Text this number: 81010 with this message: @halemiddl 

I will post photos to Twitter and send out reminders to families via the Remind App. I will continue to send emails and make phone calls to parents depending on the topic or the volume of information.

Below you will find several important upcoming events and announcements.

Have a great weekend!

Kyle Grady

Water Update: Please make sure you are sending your child to school with a filled water bottle. Earlier this week I met with a reporter from the Globe along with other members of the administrative team including Principal Mulkerin and Superintendent Clenchy. The interview centered on our response to the detection of PFAS in our water supply. As an administrative team, we continue to handle this situation with full transparency. Here is a link to the Superintendent’s notice to families regarding PFAS. 

Purple Pinkie Day: Donate a dollar, save a life. On Thu October 24, your child can donate a dollar at lunch in the Hale lunchroom, which goes to vaccinate children in countries around the world. Rotary International is working to eliminate polio, and we are down to three countries. Purple Pinkie Day is a fundraiser where families in the US give $1 to pay for inoculating kids in developing countries. Those kids have their pinkies marked purple to show they have received the medicine, so US children who donate also get their fingers painted. Best of all, the donations will be matched 2 for 1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation so your money will go even farther. This was a big success in the Nashoba schools last year, raising over $2000. 100% of the donated money goes to the inoculation campaign. Kids are encouraged to wear purple to get into the spirit.
