I want to welcome everyone to our new school year. My name is Reginald Brown and I am very excited to be the new principal at John Still K-8 School. The past 5 years I was principal at MLK K-8 School in the Pocket. During those years I was able to refocus MLK to become a district leader in technology and early implementers of the Common Core Standards. We were also very innovative in developing a strong after school component that offered a seamless addition that helped provide our students with a wide range of opportunities and experiences. I feel very confident that we will be able to develop the John Still K-8 after school program to not only meet the needs of our diverse population, but provide inspiration and experiences that will help broaden our student’s scope. We will work hard with our feeder school, Luther Burbank, to help our students recognize their dreams and become career and college ready.
I am certain that through partnering with our parents and community to support student learning and develop a safe and healthy learning environment, we will overcome our challenges and move our school in a positive and prosperous direction.
My doors are available to parents and community members at any time to discuss any concerns or ideas that you value. We will work hard to help expedite our dreams and aspirations, but at the same time we are committed to every child making growth every year.
