 Welcome to Griffin Memorial School!

I am so excited to begin my third year  at Griffin Memorial School! As a parent myself, I know the wonder that is watching a child learn and grow. There is no responsibility that I hold greater than to be entrusted with your child’s growth and safety. I am honored to be able to be part of the wonderful communities of GMS and Litchfield. We are excited this year to begin a new mission and vision for Griffin Memorial School. Through this Mission and Vision, we are sure that everyone will have the chance and opportunity to THRIVE

GMS is also now on Facebook and Instagram. Be sure to follow us to see all of the exciting events and learning opportunities that take place here. You can follow me on Twitter: @MrMitchell_GMS. I send a weekly GMS News message through our messaging system to email addresses and in a link sent as a text. Please be sure to include all of your contact information in the Powerschool system. An archive of these messages can also be found at: 


We encourage parent involvement in the school. Our Powerschool Parent Portal gives parents direct information about their child’s school performance – attendance and grades. You can also update contact information at this site. As we migrate to this new system, information will be provided so that everyone can have a seamless transition


Many parents volunteer at GMS, and we participate in the NH Partners in Education Blue Ribbon program to celebrate our high level of volunteerism. If you would like to volunteer, please begin with the online process, and then contact either our assistant principal Mrs. Maura Clinton-Jones or me to make an appointment for volunteer training. Online volunteer resources and required forms are located at our district website: One ongoing volunteer opportunity is through our active PTO. There is a link to our PTO welcome packet on the school website:


We look forward to another wonderful year of supporting strong, cooperative relationships between teachers, parents and students to support student growth and achievement.

Be Well, Be Curious, and Thrive,

Daniel Mitchell, Principal 

Griffin Memorial School
