Although the calendar says winter is still more than one month away, winter weather is here! It is important for Penguins to be outside and play throughout the day and we appreciate that you dress them with warm and waterproof clothing. Thanks to so many of you who have donated winter wear. We always keep an on-hand supply of coats, gloves, snow pants, hats, and boots, for Penguins who forget or lose their essential garb. If your child is in need of this type of clothing, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or call Ms. Wolf or Mr. Hatt directly.
We’re also grateful for your care in exercising traffic safety at school (and everywhere) as roads slicken, and daylight wanes. As a reminder, when dropping off K-2 students at Burns Park Elementary, Penguins should be dressed and ready to exit vehicle on the passenger side only. Please, never drop off your students in the second lane. Also, we ask that you only park in parking spaces and do not leave unattended vehicles along sidewalk.
As you recall, we ask that 3-5 students drop off on Wells on the school side and walk in with our walkers and bus riders.Thank you for your patience as we have a few students with exceptional circumstances who must unload from buses in the parking lot in the AM and PM. Following procedures and being careful makes for safe and stress-free arrival and departure for all of us.
Many thanks to our second grade students and families who performed and taught their classmates about their family celebration of Diwali this past week. We are truly blessed to have such richness and diversity in our culture and traditions at Burns Park Elementary School!
Also, congratulations to all Penguins (and Penguin family members) who participated in this weekend’s YPT production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. We hear from so many about the hard work and incredible talent that resulted this amazing play.
Our students love theatre, both at Burns Park and in the larger community. We heard rave reviews from Penguins who attended the recent field trip to Pioneer Theatre Guild’s production of Matilda. This week is your last chance to sign up your child for the Burns Park Players’ Production of Mary Poppins! The deadline is this Wednesday, Nov. 20th!
We are looking for adult volunteers who would be willing to put up frosted contact paper on the glass windows of our auditorium. This will help prevent some distractions that occur in this teaching and learning space. If you have time and skill (cutting contact paper and adhering it to windows) to do this, please email Laura Wolf email@example.com.
If you are interested in becoming a part of the premium fun-run in Southeastern Michigan, and a longstanding and vibrant tradition in the Burns Park and Burns Park Elementary communities, here is a chance to get involved with the legendary Burns Park Run! You can attend an informational meeting on Wednesday, December 4th from 6:30-7:30 pm at Argus Farm Stop (1200 Packard). Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
As winter weather arrives it signals the advent of the winter holiday season. Please keep in mind our communities tradition of support and generosity through our Annual Family-to Family Giving initiative. Annual Fund Holiday Family-to-Family giving envelopes will be coming home in backpack mail later this week. Your generosity will ensure the continued impact and sustainability of your PTO Scholarship Fund.
Please know also that this scholarship fund has already benefited many children and families who are experiencing crisis and need during this current school. Our academic and social programming, friendship and care, and personal and institutional generosities, make constant and critical differences in people’s lives! We are most grateful!
Finally this week, we want to invite you to attend this Thursday’s PTO meeting where you will learn about Reading Intervention programming at Burns Park Elementary and experience gym class with the legendary J. R. Leonard. The fun, learning, and business, start at 6:00 PM on the 20th in the Media Center and childcare is provided.
Be well Penguin families and have a great week. It is truly our pleasure and privilege to partner with you in care and learning with our wonderful, Burns Park Penguins.
