Superintendent's Message


Superintendent Dr. Kevin Smith

I want to welcome everyone to the new school year!  The start of a new school year always brings about a great deal of excitement and anticipation for students, parents, faculty, and staff. This year promises to be one filled with numerous opportunities for all of our students to be involved and excel in our academic, athletic, and extracurricular programs. 

Pierce County Schools has a proud history of providing a dynamic learning environment that ensures that each student reaches high levels of achievement and success. We celebrate and honor the pride and strong relationships that have been established among and between the Board of Education, administration, faculty, parents, and community. During the school year, we will continue to build upon the foundations of success where "Excellence Is the Standard" and "Bear Pride" is never-ending! The safety of our schools continues to be a top priority as our planning and preparation is an on-going proactive process. Our staff of highly qualified educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students with unique learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom. We invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us to create a learning environment that remains positive, personal, and productive for all students in assisting them to meet their goals and dreams.

We extend a special invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events across the district whenever possible. We want, need, and value your involvement and support in your child's education! We value communication and pledge to provide our parents and community with accurate and timely information on the various events and programs happening in our schools. We encourage you to contact us if you need assistance or have any questions about any of our programs. We are here to serve our students and work together as a community of learners! 

I anticipate and hope for each and everyone to experience a very rewarding and productive school year! 

Kevin Smith
