Principal’s Page


I was born in and grew up in Everett, Massachusetts. I was one of 5 boys in my family (second oldest). After getting married we moved to New Hampshire. My first teaching position was in Grade 5 in Litchfield, New Hampshire. I have also taught 7th grade. I have been an assistant principal K-5, a principal PreK-5, and most recently worked with At Risk 9th graders before being appointed principal of St. Casimir School. I have been married for 35 years, we have 3 daughters and 2 grandchildren. We also have 2 springer spaniels at home named Carter and Cam. When my wife and I have any spare time we enjoy kayaking and cross country skiing. I am a member of St. Francis Parish in Litchfield.

Dear Parents,


As the first month of school comes to a close and the crispness of fall is upon us, I write to share some news with you and the greater St. Casimir School community.

First, I have been blessed to be the principal of St. Casimir for the past two years.  I have gotten to know some very special families during that time. I have also had the pleasure of working with a wonderful group of faith-filled, dedicated, professional, and caring faculty and staff. 

After much prayer and careful reflection, I have decided to submit my intent to retire as principal of St. Casimir School effective Tuesday, November 21, 2017. Mr. Dave Thibault, Superintendent of Schools and Fr. Eric DeLisle, school pastor, have accepted my decision.  I am happy to announce that Ms. Wanda Caraballo, our beloved 4th grade teacher has agreed to serve as your new principal, while still keeping her teaching responsibilities.

Within the next few weeks, I will begin my transition out of St. Casimir.  During this time, the Superintendent and I will work closely with Ms. Caraballo to ensure a smooth change of leadership.  I have full confidence in Ms. Caraballo and her ability to strengthen the schools roots in the community.  Ms. Caraballo is eager to embark on this new journey, and asks for your continued support and prayers.

As our motto states: we are a small school with a big heart.  I am grateful for our St. Casimir community: parents, teachers and students for your continued support and dedication.  Our students are hard-working, caring, and love to live their faith.  As a new chapter in my life begins, I am looking forward to spending more time with my wife, children, and grandchildren and the exciting new adventures that await me! Please feel free to email me at or call 623-6411 with any questions.


God Bless,


Richard M. Flagg
