PPCSD Bombers Bulletin

December 7, 2022

Pine Plains Families - Welcome to the PPCSD Bombers Bulletin!

The Bombers Bulletin is a communication from Superintendent, Dr. Brian Timm, spotlighting important information and events happening in the district.

Reminder - PPCSD Strategic Planning Community Day is December 15th!


We’re excited to be continuing our strategic planning process. Thank you for your participation in the initial community thought exchange. The response was super and your feedback was very helpful as we began the process of establishing our mission, vision and core values. Our next step is to work with a large group of community, staff, Board of Education and Leadership Team members to develop ideas for how to meet the district’s objectives in each of the areas that we have prioritized.


Would you be interested in participating?

Our community planning day will be held on Thursday, December 15th from 4:00-8:00 p.m. in the Stissing Mountain Jr./Sr. HS Library. If you’re interested in participating, please email p.audenino@ppcsd.org no later than Monday, December 12th.


Thank you for considering this great opportunity to be a part of the planning for our exciting future. We’ll be sure to share the results with the entire community as we continue to pursue excellence in all that we do and for all that we do it with.


Best wishes,

Dr. Brian Timm

Superintendent of Schools
