A message from Principal Fausey-Riley

Dear Minges Brook Families,

I would like to wish you all a very happy new year! I hope you had a wonderful winter break with family and friends. As we celebrate this new year, it is always a great time for looking back to the past, but more importantly, looking forward to the upcoming year. It is a time to reflect on the changes we want or need to make and set goals! As we begin 2022, I want to assure everyone that the high expectations for behavior and academics set from the beginning of the year will continue!

Thank you for your continued support of our students and staff. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out!

Have a great weekend and thank you for choosing Minges Brook!

Heather Fausey-Riley
