    Dear Burns Park Families,

    Here’s a final note before summer break.

    Thank you Jen D’Souza, Kate Brummett, Jill Schloff, and Caitlin Klein for a lovely send off for our 5th grade students. I can’t wait for all of you to see the mural our students painted and bequeathed our school. It’s a beautiful gift that we will cherish for many years to come.

    We’re excited and privileged to be recognized by the Project Lead the Way national leadership as a 2020-2021 PLTW Distinguished School. Thank you Ms. Ziegler for making this program flourish at Burns Park Elementary School.

    Families, we want you to keep your Driveline Hang Tags! These are yours to keep for their entire time you have students in elementary school. We will, of course, issue new tags for lost tags but please try to keep the ones you have in your glove compartment over the summer and pull them out in the fall.

    If you’ve not been able to turn your device in to the school district, please send an email to arrange a drop off time with Mr. Hatt in the coming week or so.

    Have a wonderful summer and don’t forget to mark your calendars for our Popsicles in the Park event on Thursday, August 26th, at 3:00 PM.

    Your Principal,

    Chuck Hatt

    News from your PTO

    A huge thank-you to everyone who made celebrating the end of this year possible: for all our room parents who supported our teachers, to everyone who clapped-out our 5th graders, to Al Masias, Sarah Finnane, and Erika Boehnke for making our virtual movie and ice cream coupons happen; and especially to our 5th grade celebration team: Jill Schloff, Kate Brummett, Jen D’Souza, and Caitlin Klein.


    As part of the celebration, our fifth grade worked ona mural created in partnership with Treetown Murals commences. Painted on metal panels, the finished work will be 8'x8' and will celebrate Burns Park seasonal traditions and shared values. Fifth graders worked in small groups during the last two weeks of school, with the mural to be hung in the fall. This project permits traditional fifth grade graduation components of service and fun days to continue during times requiring social distancing, as well as serving as a class gift to the school community. 

    Your PTO is looking forward to the fall! Mark your calendars now for Popsicles in the Park on Thursday, August 26th at 3pm! This annual event is a time to greet teachers and other students and families. As we get closer to the start of school, there will be many opportunities to volunteer and support our school community - and members of the PTO will be available to talk about different ways to connect at Popsicles in the Park.

    Have a safe and healthy summer, and we’ll see you in August!
