Note from Mrs. Cannon

Dear Breton Downs Families,
 
Halloween is fast approaching! Our Halloween Parade will be on Friday, October 31 at 2:30 p.m.  We ask parents to report to our gym to wait for our parade. Please remember no masks, blood, or weapons when students are putting together their costumes.  Students are very excited about Friday.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate with us!

Our Veterans Day Assembly is scheduled for Tuesday, November 11 at 10:30 a.m. Please note the new start time. If you have any relatives who are serving or served in the armed forces, we would like them to attend and be recognized for their service to our country.  We will be holding a reception for our veterans at 10:00 on November 11 in the Breton Downs Learning Commons.  Please RSVP to Lisa Roger (
lrogers@egrps.org) by Monday, November 3 with the following information:
  • Their name
  • When they served
  • Branch of the military
  • Who  is their relative
If the relative cannot attend, a picture can be sent in and put in our presentation. We are asking all students and staff to wear red, white, and blue on November 11.

Parent/Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Thursday, November 6 and Tuesday, November 11.  Confirmation letters were sent home on October 10.  This is a wonderful time to discuss your child’s progress and areas of growth with the classroom teacher.  I will also be available during this time to answer any questions you might have.  Please stop by the main office to see me.

Our Hat Day for Mrs. Rogers was a huge success!  Mrs. Rogers was surprised that 386 students and over 25 staff members could keep a secret from her!  Please see the picture below with Mrs. Rogers and all her Bulldogs!
 
Warmest Regards,
Dr. Cannon
