Mr. Peter Mercurio Appointed Principal of Washington School

The Board of Education approved the appointment of Mr. Peter Mercurio as the first Principal of the new Washington School on Monday, November 7, 2016

Mr. Mercurio, who has been in Millburn for 10 years, has served as Principal of Wyoming School since 2010, and was also an Assistant Principal at Millburn Middle School. Prior to coming to Millburn, Mr. Mercurio was a Special Education teacher in Kenilworth. We are fortunate to have found a leader for our 5th grade school whose experiences bridge both the elementary and middle school years, and who well understands the developmental needs of all students.

Mr. Mercurio is already involved in the transition process. He has done a building walkthrough with the architects, and he has met with the PTO Steering Committee to begin planning for the 2017-2018 school year. He says, “I am looking forward to getting the key to the school and to start working on the many exciting and innovative programs we have in mind to make the Washington School a model for our 5th grade students.”
