Principal's Message


Dear Families,

Welcome to a new school year! Breckinridge-Franklin Elementary School (BFES) is a fantastic place, and I am excited to be back at BFES, where I taught fourth grade for five and a half years! I have worked for JCPS for the past ten years, serving as a classroom teacher in the third and fourth grades, as a magnet coordinator, and as an assistant principal. I am looking forward to a great school year!

We are honored to work with your child this year. We know that his or her time here will be exciting and rewarding. Our goal is to help your child be successful by offering positive learning experiences designed to motivate and guide him or her to achieve his or her maximum potential. We extend our hand in partnership knowing that your child will achieve his or her greatest results if we work together. We encourage you to become actively involved in the school and its programs and activities. Working together, we can make a significant, positive difference in the lives of our students!

I look forward to working with each of you throughout the year. I invite you to contact me at any time if you have a question or a concern. Thank you for all that you do for your child!


Dustin Whitis, Principal
