  • Greetings Red Rockets Community,

    It is bittersweet for me to inform you that I will be retiring from Gwinnett County Public Schools and Stripling Elementary, effective at the beginning of January 2019 with my last day of service on December 21st, 2018.  It has been the most satisfying pleasure of my life to serve you and your children since July 1st, 2016.

    As the proud principal of Stripling Elementary, I have had the opportunity to build relationships, form friendships and work collaboratively with parents, staff members, business members of this school community, and especially, with your children. Your support, dedication and engagement with Stripling Elementary will be forever engraved in my heart.  I could not have done this without you! 

    Our joint efforts have produced and maintained an environment of teaching and learning and most of all, love for our students. I will be forever grateful for the leadership opportunities provided to me by GCPS Board of Education and for the trust you have bestowed in me these past years.  Keep believing in “The Promise of Gwinnett!”

    Wishing you the best in the future and peace during this holiday season,


    Educationally yours,

    Elisa Brown, Principal
