Summit School District announces new Breckenridge Elementary principal

Daily News staff report

Current da Vinci Academy assistant principal Jonathon Johnson has been hired as the new principal for Breckenridge Elementary.

Johnson has served in his current position in Colorado Springs since 2010. His education career includes teaching as an adjunct professor in elementary science for the University of Northern Colorado.

A University of Colorado – Colorado Springs graduate, Johnson earned his administrative license and masters of the arts in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis in reading. In 1998, he earned his bachelor of science in elementary education from Crown College in Minnesota.

During his tenure at da Vinci, Johnson served on the Academy School District 20 Report Card Committee, District Technology Advisory Committee, English as a Second Language Task Force and was a trainer for Adams 50 Reading Assessment.

Johnson has extensive experience in the Primary Years Program as well as integration of the arts. He officially begins work in July, filling the vacancy due to the retirement of current Breckenridge Elementary principal Peg Connealy.

“What an honor it is to be recommended as the principal of Breckenridge Elementary School. I am so eager to serve our children, parents and staff. We have the most important charge in front of us as we help shape, guide and challenge our globally-minded leaders and innovators of tomorrow,” Johnson wrote in a staff introductory email. “I can’t wait to be a part of the great things happening at Breckenridge Elementary.”
