Meet Mrs. Brown!

Hello! I will be out on maternity leave with our twin babies who were born in July for the 2017-2018 school year. I know you will be in amazing hands with Mrs. Brekke. I will miss each and every one of those sweet and smiling faces. Enjoy the first of many exciting school years with your child. They will grow academically, socially and behaviorally more than you could ever imagine this year and it is a wonderful thing to watch and be apart of.

**The following information on this website pertains mostly to the previous school year. If you have questions about the 2017-2018 school year, please contact my maternity leave sub. Thank you!
