Dear Burns Park Families,
We hope you are having a chance to enjoy the snow that came our way last night. We’re happy to see winter weather that our Penguins can be outside and play in!
It was wonderful to see so many of you last week at our NAAPID (parent involvement day) activities. Thank you for coming. We also continue to be amazed at our 4th grade musicians and the way that Ms. Noble is able to prepare them as instrumentalists and performers, especially with our challenging schedule as of late. What a wonderful recorder concert and parent and family celebration.
We will have our rescheduled Wild Swan Performances of Under African Sky, tomorrow, the 19th. The production for 3-5 students is at 9:30 and for Y5 students at 10:45. As always, you are welcome to join us for these assemblies and siblings are also invited.
Also, our Y5 and Kindergarten Roundup is rescheduled for this Wednesday, February 20th, from 600-700. Incoming Y5 and K students are encouraged to attend. Please help us spread the word if you know of any Burns Park families with children who are ready for school this fall.
Registration for Girls on the Run, at Burns Park Elementary School, ends this Friday, February 22nd. GOTR, for girls in grades 3-5, provides lessons and experience to help develop healthy life skills, confidence, and joy! The 10-week GOTR season begins March 4th, just a few weeks away. To register, or get more information, please go to this link.https://www.

We want you to know about a community discussion and learning opportunity regarding the experiences of LGBTQ young people in our district, which will be held on February 24, 2019, 2:30pm, at the Ann Arbor District Library, 343 S 5th Ave, Ann Arbor. This event is free and open to the public.
Participants will learn to:
● Understand the concepts of sexual orientation and gender identity
● Look at the numbers and hear the experiences of LGBTQ youth in Washtenaw County, and how those experiences impact their mental, social, emotional, and physical health
● Identify at least one thing we can do to support LGBTQ youth in our community
The intended audience for this workshop are any and all community members (students, parents, teachers, business owners, and others) who would like to know more about LGBTQ youth, sexual orientation, and gender identity/expression.
This workshop is part of the Washtenaw County Community Conversations (WC3) project, brought to you by the Michigan Organization on Adolescent Sexual Health (MOASH), the Neutral Zone, the University of Michigan Spectrum Center, and Springmatter with grant funding from Michigan Medicine Community Health Services.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you tomorrow. We miss all of our Penguins friendships and learning activities and we’re ready for a return to routine.
It’s going to be a great week at Burns Park Elementary School. Please join us when you can.
Chuck Hatt and Laura Wolf

Hope all are enjoying (some more days off). Looking outside, it appears to be finally some good snow for making snowpeople. Enjoy!
