    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,

    It's been great to see Burns Park Elementary classrooms and halls filled with students wearing their new "School Built on Kindness" shirts! Thanks again to the PTO for gifting these shirts to our students and staff. Many of our families have been asking about getting some of the shirts, too. Sarah LaTarte has adapted and added to artwork that our students and Brian Bennett created, so we now have shirts, crewneck sweatshirts, zip hoodies, and even hats available at the online store -- but only for a week! BPE gear is available at the popup from Friday, November 16, until Monday, November 26. Once the popup closes, orders will be processed and shipped. Details are online here:  https://bpfall.itemorder.com/sale . Questions? Contact Alisse Portnoy at chocovanch@yahoo.com. Go Penguins!

    Many thanks to our PTO and family partners for a wonderful assembly this past week with Kevin Kammeraad. We were inspired and entertained as were several parents who were able to attend. What a great teacher and artist!

    We also offer a big thanks to Guardian Trees for continuing to provide free mulch for our school garden.  We also say a big thank-you to Emily Hastie and Tonya Fox who have continued to oversee our Weed and Seed program and help in the planning process for our garden and garden program..  We are looking for volunteers who are able to support Burns Park Elementary in this capacity starting this spring. If you have a passion for growing green things, teaching students about where our food comes from, or want to help continue our school garden tradition, please explore this opportunity with us.

    As we reflect on the passing of the seasons, and an end to the fall, we remember all the many, many, things and people we hold precious. As principals, we are thankful for a teaching staff that is committed each and every day to our student’s academic success and social and emotional growth. We are thankful for generous families who support all Burns Park students and families in every way that opportunity provides. We wish you all a restful break and a special time of togetherness and gratitude for all of our gifts blessings.

    Your Principals,

    Chuck Hatt and Laura Wolf

    A huge thank you to our community for all the support of our Annual Fund, we are SO very close to hitting our goal! Our Annual Fund drive is our most direct way of raising funds to support all of the enrichment programs in our school. Every single dollar that you give will go directly to impactful programs at Burns Park through the PTO.  Our annual fund goal for this year is to raise $25,000. We are reaching out to our community and asking for your financial support. When we can reach this goal together, our dollars are put to work immediately in your students’ classrooms and in important enrichment experiences through the school year.  We are very close, let's make it across the finish line!!



    As always, please feel free to email us if you have any questions.  Have a wonderful two days of school!

    Thank you!
