After 19 years on the job as Headmaster at Brookline High School, Dr. Bob Weintraub has announced that he will retire at the end of the year.

In the letter he described this decision as one of the most emotional he has ever had to make. He stated that, "You (The BHS community) are my extended family... I am tremendously proud of you, and deeply grateful to you, my BHS brothers and sisters, and sons and daughters, for working so hard over time, for working so well over time, for being so creative over time, for being so kind and caring over time, and for being so much fun over time." He also pledged to continue working 24/7 for the Broolkine Public School system unitl the last second of of his tenure as Headmaster.
A more formal farewell address will be given before the end of the school year in June.
