Hello! My name is Jayme Brewrink and I am thrilled to be the new Assistant Principal at Running Brook Elementary School. I began my teaching career in HCPSS as a first and second grade teacher at Swansfield Elementary School and have since taught third and fourth grades at Forest Ridge Elementary School and most recently served as the administrative intern at Waterloo Elementary School. I have earned my Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Maryland, College Park. After college, I decided to pursue my love for elementary education and earned my Masters in Education and Certificate in Administration from Johns Hopkins University. At home I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 year old daughter, being active, and cheering on the Orioles and Ravens! Please stop by and introduce yourself! I am so excited to work with you and your children and am looking forward to a wonderful year at Running Brook Elementary School.

School Overview

Running Brook Elementary School’s motto is “Reaching the Best in Every Student.” Our staff of committed, caring teachers and support personnel strives to meet each child’s individual needs and unique abilities.

Running Brook is committed to providing each child and family with the supports they need for success. The Bridges Over Wilde Lake grant provides students and families with after-school enrichment and academic activities. Running Brook receives technical and material support to improve the academic skills of our students and continue to explore science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Our Reading and Math Support Teachers assist classroom teachers in developing instructional strategies based upon student needs. Additional teachers allow small group instruction in reading and math and we offer a technology curriculum designed to infuse content knowledge with computer skills and enhance our student’s college and career readiness.

The support of our PTA, community, volunteers and business partners allows Running Brook to provide a truly outstanding environment for our students.

Our staff and students at Running Brook are committed to educational excellence and life-long learning while developing a positive school environment where quality teaching and successful learning are prized and supported. The Running Brook staff takes pride in knowing each student as a learner, and instilling in all children a love and respect for learning.

Our diversity is one of our biggest strengths and we continually work to provide a culturally inclusive environment for all of our students and their families. There is truly a “Running Brook Way” that is distinct from that of other elementary schools, and we are proud to have staff members who are always striving to “Reach the BEST in Every Student”!
