Dear Parents, Staff and Members of the Brockton Community,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year after what has hopefully been a restful and fun break with family and friends.

We are ready for teaching and learning and celebrating the accomplishments and achievements of your children as they settle into a new school year where they will be engaged academically, socially, emotionally and creatively.

Last year, our student athletes, scholars, artists, musicians and performers continued to put Brockton on the map with championship wins and titles of all types as well as the day-to-day successes that have become our hallmark. We are looking forward to another successful school year.

One of our exciting new developments is the opening of our global studies school at the George School which will house the new Amitie Program, a French Language dual enrollment program, which joins the Juntos Spanish Two-Way Language Program and Unidos, the district’s Portuguese Dual Language Program. This exciting initiative is the first of its kind in the state and, again, places Brockton at the forefront of multilingual education.

Parents, as the year begins, please take the opportunity to get involved in PACs, PTAs, PTOs, Parent Councils and Parents’ Academy offerings. We welcome your skills, talents and input and we thank you for your continued support and cooperation.

Let’s all have a great year.

Superintendent Kathleen Smith
