Note from Dr. Cannon
June 3, 2019
Dear Breton Downs Families,
As the 2018-2019 school year comes to an end this Thursday, I want to take this opportunity to thank the many people who have made this year so memorable. We have much to be proud of at Breton Downs Elementary. First, my sincere appreciation and thanks to the parents and the PTO for your continued dedication and support of Breton Downs and our students. The partnership between school and home is extremely important and you provide us with support inside and outside of the classroom. Next, please join me in thanking our staff for their commitment, dedication, and care of our students. They are passionate about providing students with exceptional learning opportunities that support the development of the whole child. Finally, I want to thank our Breton Downs students for their enthusiasm and bright smiles. Our students come to school each day with kind, caring, and respectful behavior and are eager and excited to learn. I often say I have the best job in the whole world and I feel very fortunate to be the principal of such a fine school. Thank you for making Breton Downs Elementary such a wonderful place!
Field Day- Tuesday, June 4
Tomorrow, Tuesday, June 4, in the afternoon we will be having Field Day at Breton Downs. Our students are eager and excited about this fun-filled day. Mrs. Wagenmaker and our 5th grade students have been working together to plan many games and activities. Please see the information below for Field Day.
Shoes: All students must wear tennis shoes to protect their feet during the variety of activities. No sandals or flip-flops please.
Clothing: Please ensure your child is dressed for approximately 3 hours outside, especially if the weather is hot. Students will participate in several games involving water, but none of these are designed for students to get soaked.
Sunscreen: If you would like your child to wear sunscreen, please apply it at home prior to coming to school.
Students should come to school with a filled water bottle. They can also wear hats at Field Day.
