Jenna Downs Selected as Middleton Elementary Interim Principal

Dear Middleton Elementary Community,

I am pleased to share that we have selected a new leader to serve Middleton Elementary for the 2022-23 school year. Please join me in welcoming Jenna Downs as interim principal.

Ms. Downs has an extensive range of elementary experience, having served as a teacher, instructional lead and assistant principal at Middleton, Grey Cloud, Liberty Ridge and Red Rock Elementary Schools. She looks forward to returning to Middleton where she spent twelve of her thirteen years at SoWashCo Schools. 

Principal Downs values a positive school culture that’s created through open communication and respect. She looks forward to collaborating with the students, staff and families at Middleton to help each student reach their full potential.

Ms. Downs has excellent academic qualifications with a Bachelor of Applied Science in elementary education from the University of Minnesota Duluth, a Master of Arts in education and a graduate certificate in educational administration, both from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota.

Principal Downs and Principal Williams will work together to ensure a smooth transition and a strong start to the new school year. If you have any questions, please contact me at 651-425-6201. Thank you for supporting your child and Middleton Elementary.
