Principal Gina Middaugh

Welcome to Brown Elementary!

We are thrilled to have the 2023-24 school year underway!  As the proud principal of Brown Elementary, I am excited to extend a warm welcome to students, parents, teachers, and community members. Brown Elementary is a Developmental Kindergarten through 4th grade school with more than 600 students. It is not just a place for learning, but an environment that is nurturing, supportive, and meets the students where they are.  

We value the education of the whole child, infusing academics with social and emotional learning that helps our students grow and develop to their full potential.  To help with this, we are a “Leader in Me” school that focuses on developing the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People:

  • Be proactive
  • Begin with the end in mind
  • Put first things first
  • Think win-win
  • Seek first to understand, then to be understood
  • Synergize
  • Sharpen the Saw

At the heart of our school is a strong sense of community. We believe in open and transparent communication between all stakeholders; students, parents, teachers, and staff. Brown’s outstanding educators create the foundation for your child’s success. In addition, a large part of Brown’s success can be attributed to its active and engaged parents who are involved with our PUP Group, on various committees, and volunteer in numerous ways throughout our school. We highly encourage active involvement from parents and value their partnership with their child’s educational journey.    

I look forward to continuing our partnership and collaboration of providing your children with an effective and engaging learning experience. We will always look to our families to be positive partners in their children’s educational journey. Our staff makes it a priority to work together as a caring and compassionate learning community with professionalism, teamwork, action, and expertise. Most importantly, the best interests of our students are always at the center of our purpose.  

As always, my door is open and we welcome your input. Please feel free to contact me via email or call to make an appointment to speak with me to discuss any ideas you feel will make this the best year ever! It is an honor to serve as Brown Elementary Principal and I am committed to working closely with our staff, stakeholders, and families to provide the best possible educational experience and help every student build success stories. 

In partnership,

Gina Middaugh
