    BP Penguins

    Dear Burns Park Families,

    Thank you Mr. Leonard and thank you parents and family volunteers for another wonderful Field Day at Burns Park. We know that our students will always remember the fun they have on these special days. Mr. Leonard, you are an amazing teacher and creator of community.

    Many thanks also to Brad Whitridge and Sue McCready for organizing our Friday morning Chopped Assembly which was a very fun way for us to celebrate healthy eating by choosing to be brave (try new foods), be bright (go for the color in fruits and vegetables) and to be beautifully balanced.

    We are also grateful to Chef Brandon Johns who founded the Grange Restaurant, Chef Bryant Stuckey (Chloe’s dad) who is the Executive Pastry Chef at the Gandy Dancer, and Chef Nicholas Bruzzano, Burns Park and Tappan alumni and Food Network Chopped Junior Champion, for teaching and coaching our cooking teams.

    We have had so many joyful events this spring and look forward to our last week with class parties, 5th grade graduation, and our School’s Out Campout this coming Friday. More information about the School’s Out Campout will be coming soon.

    As we begin summer break, please consider signing up for a week to care for the school garden. Two families each sign up to share a week of watering and weeding duties. No experience is necessary, and in addition to written instructions, we can meet you at the garden for an orientation. Questions? Sue Anne sueannebell@gmail.com or Tonja texastonja@yahoo.com

    Sign up here:


    If your child has medication at school, please stop in the office on or before the last day of school, Friday, June 15.  Medications cannot be sent home with your child unless there is a self-carry order. Any medications left behind will be disposed of at this time. We are unable to safely store medications over the summer due to the warm temperatures. Thank you so much for your cooperation in collecting your child's meds in a timely fashion.

    It’s hard to believe we’ve already come to the end of the school year and our last weekly update.  Thank you for sharing your children with us and for all you do to enrich our school community.  We’re already planning for all our returning Penguins and the 2018-19 school year and we hope to see you around Burns Park in the next few days for summer goodbyes.

    Your Principals,

    Chuck Hatt and Laura Wolf
