BRE staff last day

Dear Brackendale Families,

The staff at Brackendale Elementary School wish you and yours a delightful, rejuvenating and safe summer season.

We wish all the grade 6 students well as they embark on their next learning adventures.  Their enthusiasm, leadership, hard work and commitment towards Brackendale Elementary school will be missed.  We  know that they will be amazing leaders in their new school next year. Congratulations!

We would also like to thank our Brackendale PAC and all the volunteers for their support with events, activities, fundraising and learning.  All families are invited to “Run with the PAC” (see notice:  PAC Recruit.  We will be hosting Parent University again at our monthly BRE PAC meetings in the new school year.  These sessions provided by school staff will keep you informed and engaged with student learning and a variety of educational topics and issues.

Best Regards,

Ms. K. Saenger, Acting Principal
