  • Dr. Gaines  Welcome to the 2020-2021 virtual school year!  I am excited to serve as Principal of Lucille M. Brown Middle  School for the fourth year!  I am committed to ensuring that we focus on student success.  We believe that each  and every student has a gift to share with the world, and we work hard to unlock their highest potential. We  have high expectations of our students, and expect all students to uphold our school vision- to become caring  and respectful individuals who inquire, learn, reflect, and take action to better our global society!  I ask for your  continued support all through the school year to help us reach our academic goals. Your encouragement and engagement makes a huge difference. Please continue to be involved in your child’s studies, continue to build relationships with our teachers, and continue to engage with the entire Richmond middle school community!  Our children are counting on us!  It is a privilege to be a part of this community and I look forward to our continued collaboration!
