Mr. Brian Pritchett

I hope this letter finds you doing well and enjoying the beautiful months of summer. I would like to take a moment to formally introduce myself to you. My name is Brian Pritchett and I will be serving as Acting Principal of Grimes School

Commencing this September, I will be entering my twenty fifth year in education; all within the Mount Vernon City School District. During my tenure in Mount Vernon, I have served in the capacity as a substitute teacher, elementary teacher intern, elementary classroom teacher, high school history teacher, high school basketball coach and most recently as an assistant principal for the past fifteen years. I have also worked at Grimes School as an Assistant Principal from 2011- 2016.

When I talk to people throughout MVCSD and within my circle of educators, I always reflect back on my tenure at Grimes School. Grimes School is a special place that has an aurora of “legacy” and “service” attached to it as soon as you enter the building. When I got the notification of my assignment for Acting Principal of Grimes School, I was truly excited and thankful for the opportunity. I am ready to get to work and I’m looking forward to building on the tradition of academic excellence, service and student mentorship.
