Principal Clarissa Brown's Message

July 27, 2018

Dear Harrison Elementary School Families,

My name is Clarissa Brown and I am so excited to introduce myself as the new Principal of Harrison Elementary.  This school year will mark my 15th year in the Riverside Unified School District.  As an educator and a lifelong learner, I am passionate about children and education. I look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging, and high quality educational experience. I know the important of a collaborative home-school relationship. I know in order to meet your child’s social, emotional and academic needs a working relationship is essential. I look forward to building relationships with you and your child and working together to provide the best for each and every student.

Before joining Harrison Elementary School, I served in a variety of teaching and educational leadership roles over the past 14 years.  I served as a classroom teacher for ten years at Pachappa Elementary School. After ten years, I left the classroom to join the Math Staff Development team with Instructional Services. I then served as the Assistant Principal at Hawthorne Elementary School for the last three years. I will spend a lot of time with your children, getting to know them and learning their interests.  I will celebrate their successes, small and large, encourage them to grow and let them know every day that they are valued and have a special place in our school.

To prepare for the upcoming school year, please remember these important dates:

Kindergarten Orientation/Meet & Greet     August 10 (2 PM-3 PM)

Class lists posted                                         August 10 (8 AM-3 PM)

I look forward to meeting you and embarking on another successful school year at Harrison Elementary School. 

Clarissa Brown
