• General Brown Junior-Senior High School

    Principal’s Welcome

  • Dear Parents/Guardians,                                                                                                                                      August 2022

    I would like to officially welcome all of you to the 2022-2023 school year!  I hope summer was relaxing and enjoyable for everyone.   

    I am excited to start my second year as the Principal at General Brown Jr.-Sr. High School.  I have worked in the District since 1994 in various roles and reside in the District with my wife and two kids.  Most recently, I served as the Dexter Elementary Principal from 2014-2021.  I feel honored to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful students, and all of the supportive parents/guardians. September will be a time we reconnect.  I look forward to an exciting and productive year for all of us.

    Mr. Joseph Folino is beginning his second year as the Jr.-Sr. High School Assistant Principal/Athletics Director.  Mr. Folino previously worked at Thousands Islands CSD in the same capacity and is a former Special Education teacher at Indian River.  Mr. Folino and I believe in a student-centered approach making sure all students have a safe and fulfilling academic and athletic experience at General Brown. 

    The home is a student’s primary environment for learning and we are here to assist you in any way we can so your child will develop to their full potential.  It is my sincere hope that all of us: parents/guardians, teachers, and staff will work together to foster our students’ enthusiasm for learning.  Your assistance and cooperation is invaluable in the educational process.  It takes teamwork as none of us can do it alone.  I ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that they:

    • Attend school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s  learning experience
    • Complete all homework assignments given by teachers
    • Share school experiences with you so that you are aware of their school life
    • Inform you if they need additional support in any area or subject

    I would like to invite you to visit our District website. This will serve as a resource for all upcoming events and important reminders.

    As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input.  I encourage you to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas that you may have with me so we make our Jr.-Sr. High School the best it can be.
