At Martin Middle School, we are all about OUR students. We put OUR students and OUR school first in everything we do. We aren’t afraid to take risks and try new things in order to meet the needs of OUR students.

Today, ask a teacher how their teaching practice contrasts what they used to do last year, or five years ago, or ten years ago, or even last week. Ask them to tell you how things are different and what caused them to change.

We would like to take this opportunity to recognize Mr. Small who is leaving Martin Middle School to become the Director of the Career and Technical Center at EPHS.

We are proud of Mr. Small’s promotion to this position for which he has worked extremely hard to earn.

Nearly 20 years ago, Mr. Small began at Martin Middle School as a PE and Health teacher. From that position, he moved up to become the first middle school Dean in East Providence at MMS. He revolutionized the middle school Dean position and always put students first while maintaining a professional attitude towards all families, staff and students.

Over the years, he has been a coach of football and track at both the high school and middle school levels. He has mentored many East Providence youth which has earned him a strong reputation in the community.

Words can’t express how MMS will miss the impact Mr. Small has made on the MMS Community however we know he will continue to do great things at the CTE and EPHS! However, he will always be a member of the WILDCAT FAMILY! Congrats to Mr. Small!

We would like to take a moment to recognize Mr. Rappa for being selected as this year’s clinician for the Providence Singers Young Men’s Choral Festival. We congratulate him on receiving this very prestigious honor and we wish him the best of luck at his concert tomorrow evening which is being held at the Nazarian Center at Rhode Island College.

Rob Rappa, once a tenor, tenor section leader, and member of the Providence Singers Board of Trustees, returns this month as clinician for the Singers 2020 Young Men’s Choral Festival.

Since 1999, Rappa has been choral director at the Edward R. Martin Middle School in East Providence, R.I. His choruses have won honors at state and regional festivals and are regarded as among the highest performing groups in the state. He has been an effective and tireless advocate for choral education, recently serving as president of the Rhode Island Music Education Association (RIMEA) and the Rhode Island Chapter of the American Choral Directors Association (RI-ACDA). His classroom has been open to student teachers and collegiate practicum classes, helping to train the next generation of music educators, and he has traveled to Washington several times in recent years to advocate and lobby for music education issues.

Rappa also oversees the RIMEA All-State vocal auditions at both junior and senior levels. He has been a guest conductor of the Rhode Island College Men’s Choir, the Rhode Island Jr. All-State Honor Choir, and the Junior Providence Singers Treble Chorus, and has planned, presented and served as a clinician for many workshops around New England. As 2020 clinician, Rappa’s involvement with the Young Men’s Choral Festival comes full circle: He attended and performed with the first YMCF in 2009.
