    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,

    I am sending my final farewell as Principal. It was wonderful to see so many of you at my retirement reception and at 5th grade graduation. Thank you for the books that were bought in my honor. I am grateful that a message of inclusion and welcome will be continue to be given in my name for years to come. It is essential for children to experience themselves; their culture, family, and identities, in the literature, language, and artifacts, of their schoolhouse and classrooms. No school can be wholesome or functional otherwise.

    My years at Burns Park Elementary School have been a tremendous gift to me. I leave an amazing team of teachers and support staff who are deeply committed to their work and to our children. I am blessed to know that Leslee Bullock will lead you as we move forward. Leslee is a gifted, and loving, educator with a passion for play and learning, and the spark of joy that is essential from those who would lead teachers, children, and families.

    Thank you for partnering with me during my time at Burns Park.  As I have grandchildren who attend and will continue for years, and a fondness and affection for all of you and your children, you will continue to see me in the coming days. I look forward to reading, singing with kids, and volunteering in any way I can and to staying connected to you for the sake of our community and our most precious gift and important responsibility, our brilliant and beautiful children.

    With Affection and Gratitude,

    Chuck Hatt
