Superintendant's Message

I would like to welcome you and your children back for the 2019-2020 school year. I hope that you had a restful and enjoyable summer vacation. I am honored to serve the community as superintendent and I am very excited about the bright future that lies ahead for the Woonsocket Education Department.  We, in the Woonsocket Education Department, hold very high expectations for our students, parents and ourselves.  

Our mission as educators is to partner with you in the development of your children as they grow into independent, successful citizens who will be ready for the challenges of the 21st century. To that end, communication between parents/guardians and the schools is critical to student success. Therefore, I urge you to regularly view our district and school’s websites for important district and school information as well as attending parent/teacher conferences during the school year. In addition, if you have any questions regarding your child’s education, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s school.

The first day of school is often met with anxiety, excitement, and possibilities. I wish both you and your children a smooth transition and successful school year. If we can assist you in any way to help with your child’s transition this year, please do not hesitate to call me at 767-4600 or your child’s school office. We are here to assist you in any way that we can.

Thank you and I look forward to working with you and your child this year.


Patrick J. McGee, Ed.D.
