MIDDLETOWN, R.I. (MAY 27, 2022) – In each of the schools across Middletown, there are students doing excellent, noteworthy things. As part of a new feature from the Town, a  different student will be spotlighted for their efforts to make Middletown a more special place to live, work and play.

Who I’d Like To Thank: “I would like to thank Mrs. Shiels for supporting me in fifth grade. I would also like to thank Ms. Smith and Miss Rogers for supporting me in seventh grade.”
