    Burns Park Elementary School Mission Statement

    To foster academic achievement in a safe and nurturing environment which develops responsible citizenship, a positive self-image, creativity, sensitivity to others and multi-cultural awareness.




    Dear Burns Park Families,

    The Ann Arbor Public Schools are officially closed for Spring Break and teachers have been encouraged to unplug. We will not be sending daily messages and learning opportunities to students this week. We will resume this activity beginning Monday, April 6th. We are also planning with staff to develop a consistent plan for teachers to provide a virtual meeting for each classroom on that week of return.

    For the past week we have been working to connect every Burns Park student with access to a technology device and an internet connection. Our goal is 100% of Burns Park families and we are very close.

    During the next two weeks our curriculum department will be developing a plan to move forward with online learning. This plan will be implemented during the week of April 13th.

    One of the highlights of our day has been observing the emotional, social, and physical development our children experience at recess as well as their joy at play. We hear from students and families about the challenges of social distancing and we are reminded that play and social interaction are some of our children’s most meaningful work. It’s hard and we are sad as we miss the physical contact we have with each other, from smiles, to the rough and tumble play that all of our children enjoy. At the same time, we are grateful for the way we are working together to flatten the curve of COVID 19 infection by staying isolated from each other and interacting virtually or from afar.

    So many Burns Park adults are involved in the health care professions. We know that your work right now is particularly stressful and we are thankful for your service to the human family. Our thoughts are with you as with all in our community whose daily work is essential to public well-being.

    Please know that we want to help in any way that we can. If you have a need for food, support for being connected, or conversation and encouragement, or you are aware of others who are in need, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are both responsive to email this week and if you need or want to call, please do not hesitate. We are available at 734-707-3698.

    While we mourn for loss of routine and are challenged by the uncertainty of events, we feel kinship and connection with you and are heartened by our community’s care and generosity.

    While this is a sobering and stressful time, there are also wonders to observe. Our children are resilient and creative and always making keen and humorous observations. They are prolific in their art and imaginations. Our friends and neighbors are engaged in acts of courage in their professional and public service. Birds are returning and animal life is active and engaged in springtime life-cycle events. Every day the grass is greener and new life emerges, as will our vibrant and caring school community.

    Your Principals,

    Chuck and Laura
