Principal Erickson

Dear Breckenridge Families,

Welcome back to the 2023-24 school year!  Custodial staff, administration and classroom teachers are all busy preparing for a great school year.   I hope everyone had a fantastic summer filled with sunshine and lots of  fun all mixed in with some rest and relaxation.

After a busy but exciting summer of planning with our redesigned administrative team, we are thrilled to offer great opportunities to all our PreK through 12th grade students this coming school year.  Breckenridge Schools is a great place to learn and grow.  Together with our dedicated staff, we will strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe.  We are looking forward to providing a rigorous and meaningful social, emotional and educational experience for all our students. Our overall goal is to encourage active student engagement to foster a lifetime love for learning so when our students leave our buildings, they find success and joy in the lives they lead as citizens of a broader community locally and globally.

Partnering with families is crucial to promote a healthy school experience for students socially, emotionally and educationally.   We will continue to work towards building a healthy and successful school community with all our stakeholders.
