    Dear Burns Park Families,

    What a wonderful warm and sunny Sunday! It was fun to see so many of you participating in this year’s Burns Park Run as I was out and about in the school neighborhood this morning. You can see results posted below in our PTO announcements. Thanks so much to Kate Flewelling, Elizabeth Villiard, Rachel Ufer, and everyone else who helped organize and find sponsorship for this year’s event.

    Several of our staff families are celebrating graduations this weekend as I know that many of you must be as well, for family members near and far. Congratulations and good cheer to you all who are celebrating accomplishment and commencement, particularly in this challenging time.

    We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome our 4th and 5th grade students, who are ready to participate in the hybrid model, this week! Welcome upper classmates. We can’t wait to see you at school.

    May 4th was initially posted as no school due to Election Day. However, with no Ann Arbor election that day, AAPS will be in session on May 4th. This year’s full calendar is available here

    Mr. Leonard wants to give your students a heads up for P.E. class this week. He’s asking students to gather the following to be ready for upcoming lessons.

    Y5-5th Grade Supplies: Overhand Throw

    -  One ball or pair of socks that you can throw.

    -  Six items to use as targets to knock over and that you can stack on top of one another.  You could use plastic cups, toys, paper towel rolls, etc.

    Please join the Burns Park Players for a Company Sing-Along! A chance for families and kids to sing with one another, distanced, in the park.  

    The Sing-Along will be held outdoors at Burns Park on Friday, June 4th at 6PM. In case of rain, it will be held on June 6th at 6PM, same place.

    No pressure to be perfect!  This is just for casual fun.  The words to songs will be up on a screen.  Audience members just join with singing when they feel up to it.  We will have a special section of the event devoted to a 5th grade number, and an all-other grades number as well.

    If you have a fifth-grader who is interested in participating, please sign them up at the following form: BPP Fifth Grade Participation Sheet. There will be outdoor, distanced rehearsals in May with masks required, run by two fully vaccinated parent volunteers. 

    If you have a non-5th-grade elementary-aged child interested in participating, please sign them up at this form: BPP Elementary Number Sign-Up Sheet. They will receive a video with the selected song and are encouraged to practice as much as possible!

    Lastly, if you have a beloved show tune that you would like to see included in the event’s program, please add the song here: 2021 Sing-Along Show Tune Requests. If you have any questions, please contact Carly Groves: carlygroves1@gmail.com

    Thank you, Burns Park Elementary School family. We will see you soon, either online or in person. Have a wonderful week.

    Your Principal,

    Chuck Hatt
