Dear Families new to Greenwich,

Welcome to Eastern Middle School! 

The Newcomers Committee is designed to be a social support group for families who have either just moved to the area or who are just entering the Greenwich Public School system for the first time. We want to make this a great transition for you, introducing you to new friends, helping you find a great pediatrician, sharing our favorite sushi spots, and, of course, helping you navigate middle school.  

We'll have lots of events throughout the year to try to accommodate everyone's schedules. Please check back here for updated information on upcoming events. Look forward to meeting you all!


Your Newcomers Committee co-chairs, 

Elda Buonanno & Caroline Pardo
