EMS Principal


Parents/Guardians of East Middle School!

Welcome to the 23-24 school year!

It is my honor to serve the East Community as your Principal. I have been in education for over twenty years serving in various roles to include Teacher, Mentor, Pathway Director, and Assistant Principal. During my time as Interim Principal during the 22-23 school year, I had an opportunity to meet with many of you to problem-solve challenges, celebrate accomplishments and identify goals for the future. 

Our students are Prepared and Responsible, always exhibit Integrity, are Dependable and show their best Effort. I am confident that through our commitment of building the ideal East, our scholars will continue to be positive contributors to our larger community. 

I appreciate each of you and your commitment to ensure that our students excel in the classroom today so that they can develop a solid foundation for their high school experience in the future. Exciting things are happening at East and we are looking forward to beginning another year of learning and growing academically and socially as a community. We look forward to seeing our returning students and getting to know those that are new to our school. 

I hope that the summer has provided each of you an opportunity to rest, relax and rejuvenate. Join us this year as we help your student Step Into Their Future with PRIDE

This year we will focus on student ownership of their education trajectory. They will have an opportunity to complete digital portfolios to highlight their aspirations and accomplishments. Their presentations in front of an authentic audience will highlight their strengths, affinities and areas of opportunity. 

Are you ready?! Let’s make it a great year!

In Service, 

Jacquelyn “Jacque” Brown
