from Dr. Dympna M. Thomas,
Hello PAC Students, Families, Staff and Sending Districts,
I have been honored to be your Executive Director for the last two years. My nearly three decades of experience in public education serving students and staff in urban and suburban communities across Massachusetts has allowed me to be a classroom teacher, professional development coordinator, assistant principal, principal, director of special education, assistant superintendent and executive director.
Pilgrim Area Collaborative (PAC) was established in 1976 and is a vibrant educational environment led by expert staff who bring daily dedication to servicing our students, our families and our districts. In our setting, each student is recognized and valued for the unique gifts and abilities they bring to our programs. Our prime objective is to provide individualized educational services to children ages 3-22 and to tap into each student’s inner strengths and expand those strengths to allow each student to reach their highest potential. We strongly believe that educating our students is not limited to the classroom setting, rather educating students means fostering connections between school, home, and the community. During times of uncertainty in our world, communication and collaboration will be two valuable tools in continuing our supportive school, home, community learning environments focusing on the importance of the social, emotional and academic well-being of our students’, staff and families.
Thank you to our supportive sending districts, parents/guardians, amazing students, extraordinary staff and the Board of Directors who make the Pilgrim Area Collaborative a very special place to learn and work.
