Today, October 4th, is National World Teacher's Day, and it's the perfect opportunity to express our gratitude for the incredible work teachers, teaching assistant’s, teacher aide’s, and the substitute teaching staff do every day. Their dedication and selflessness do not go unnoticed. They consistently go above and beyond, putting in extra effort to ensure our Brocton students receive the best education possible. Their commitment to their growth and success is truly inspiring. Not only do they teach from textbooks, but they also provide valuable life lessons and broaden the students' perspectives. They are the most powerful influencers in their lives, and their impact reaches far beyond the classroom. On this World Teacher's Day, let us all come together and celebrate the remarkable work they all do. We are proud to be part of the Brocton community, and their efforts make us Brocton Strong.
We are fundraising for our Kids at Promise Boxing Program, where yours truly is one of the coaches. Any donation or ticket purchase is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support.
Today is National Custodian Recognition Day! They work while we sleep. Sometimes we walk around them in the halls not always “seeing” them or their work as important. That’s why we love this day, National Custodian Day, which rolls around every October 2nd. It recognizes the hard work that it takes to keep our public facilities in tip-top shape as well as the people who diligently work to make sure we have schools and workplaces that are spotless and sanitary. Our Maintenance Department is our first line of defense of the war on germs and often, it’s a thankless task. So, on National Custodian Day, please show your appreciation to the custodians and maintenance staff who clean and maintain the office buildings, classrooms and our outdoor/athletic facilities that you frequent at Brocton CSD. Thank you Ken, Paul, James, Jeff, Ryan, Joe, Hunter, Mark, Tamara, Valerie, Will, Kelly, David, and our dedicated substitute cleaners.

This week, Mr. Galofaro sent our third and fourth graders home with books to add to their home libraries or trade with a friends or family! On each bag full of books, he attached a note explaining "These wonderful books have been collected and donated by retired teachers and friends of the library. With so many books and so little time, it’s time to do some cleaning! Time to make space for new stories and characters!" All of these books are already in our library and we just have too many copies! I hope you will look through these books and add them to your home library or find a place to donate them where children can continue to enjoy these stories for years to come!"
