Welcome to the Naquag PTO!

Thanks to everyone who donated food and volunteered their time for both the Teacher Luncheon and the Ice Cream Social! Both events were a big hit, and wouldn’t have been possible without parent support!


  • Naquag/Glenwood/Central Tree Directory: The Naquag PTO provides each Naquag family with a student directory. For the first time, the directory will be a combined directory for Naquag, Glenwood, and Central Tree students. You only need to fill out one form per family. This free directory is a pdf file published for the sole use of the students and their families and should not be used for public distribution.

    In order for your student(s) to be included in this directory, THIS FORM with your information AND signature must be turned into your child’s teacher by October 8th. Without this signed form, your student’s information will NOT be included in the school directory.

    Questions? Please contact us at naquagpto285@gmail.com. You can fill out as much information or as little as you would like to appear in the directory. Your student cannot be listed in the directory, even under the class lists section, without completing this form.

  • PTO Meeting: October 8th at 6:30pm in the Naquag Library. All parents are welcome to attend! We had a great turnout at our last meeting, and hope to see even more new faces!
  • Fall Fest: October 24th in the Naquag Gym. We need lots of volunteers and donations for this event! More information coming soon.

 Meet Wiser, our school mascot.

What are the origins of Wiser’s name?    On December 22, 1686, a group of five Native Americans purchased a large parcel of land called Naquag.  “Naquag” was a  general name for the territory now comprising Rutland, Oakham, Hubbardston, Barre and parts of Princeton and Paxton. Possibly the same as Naiyag, meaning “an angle or corner,” and used by the Native Americans as a boundary. (Naig, ‘ point corner. ‘) One of the Native Americans who purchased the land was James Wiser, also known as Qualapunit.
