    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,

    While, as we rule, we prefer snow for this time of year, the weather today was glorious. We hope you were able to be outside with your family and we’re looking forward to sunny and warmer weather for most of this week. With a bit of luck, the playground should dry out a bit giving us some relief from our new winter outdoor feature; mud.

    If your child is missing anything, please check the Lost and Found collection Monday or Tuesday by noon.  Items will be bagged up and gathered for donations on Tuesday by our Service Squad. The Lost and Found is located in the hallway outside the Media center.  

    Family-to-Family Giving which Nicole Webb has facilitated for several years, will have an extended window through the end of the day, Monday, the 17th. Last year our Family-to-Family giving program helped 98 families celebrate the holidays with a little less stress.

    We hope you will join us for this week’s PTO meeting on the 20th, in the Media Center, beginning at 7:00 PM. Childcare is provided.

    It’s going to be a lively and exciting week at Burns Park. The air will be full of vacation and holiday buzz and our students will be in high spirits.

    On Friday, beginning at 9:30 AM, we will welcome the Tappan musicians and singers for their annual holiday concert. This is always a special event as we welcome older Penguins who play and sing. They always impress us with their ability, exceptional at their middle school age, and we want you to know that you are welcome to join us if you can. 

    Your Principals,

    Chuck Hatt and Laura Wolf

    Hello Kids and Parents - It’s time for the Special Interest Fair! All Burns Park students are encouraged to make a project on just about any subject that sparks their interest. Last year, we had some wonderful projects from such creative imaginations. The purpose of the fair is to encourage students to be as creative as possible on a subject that interests them. It is meant to be fun and it is not a competition. We want everyone to feel a sense of achievement.

    1.   Pick a topic: Think about something you enjoy doing or maybe you want to learn more about a subject. You may do the project with a friend or sibling.
    2.    REGISTER: This will be available on the school sign up hub! Fill out the registration form by Jan 19. A parent or guardian must be present to supervise, so we get all the information we need. Online registration is highly encouraged due to the number of participants.If doing the project with a friend then only one of you needs to register. There is an option on the registration to add their name. If you are unable to register online. Paper registrations will be available in the school office and if you can drop them back in by end of school on Jan 19.
    3.   Investigate: Gather up as much info as you can about your subject. Visit the media center, read books, ask your parents to help you search online.
    4.   Create: Please use either a freestanding tri-fold cardboard project board or you may create a free-standing display of your own. All we ask is that it fits with a 3 foot by 2 foot table area. The tri-fold project boards are available at Michael’s or Jo-Ann’s. Other local supplies stores will have them.  Be as CREATIVE as possible!

    There are a few no-no’s. Sorry!!

    Absolutely NO LIVE ANIMALS, NO VALUABLES, NOTHING OF SENTIMENTAL VALUE, NO CANDY OR TREATS. The fair will be on display all day without supervision

    Things to Remember: Registration is due on Jan 19. https://goo.gl/forms/s92NsxamRfpcX4yC2

    •        Project drop off before school: 8:15am-8:50am (I will send out info, so everyone knows how the drop off will work and so it goes as smoothly as possible).
    •        Class viewing will be from 9am until 3:30pm (Parents are welcome).
    •        Family and Friends viewing: 6pm-7:15pm.
    •        Projects to be taken home that evening or will be left in the auditorium for pick up.

    If you have any questions feel free to e-mail James Boardman: themutster@me.com
