    Dear Downey Students, Parents and Families:

    It is with great excitement that I welcome each student, parent and family member to the 2023-2024 school year.  I am also excited to introduce Mrs. Jenifer Branca as our new Assistant Principal.  Mrs. Branca comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and experience.  She has been a part of Harrisburg School District since 2013 serving as teacher, instructional coach, literacy coordinator and most recently as the Assistant Principal and then Interim Principal at Scott Elementary.  Please be sure to give Mrs. Branca a huge Downey welcome!
