    Dear Burns Park Families,

    Happy Earth Day. It was nice to see so many of you cleaning up our park and nice to know as well that there wasn’t a tremendous amount of work to do since we strive to be good neighbors and friends as we keep our park and school grounds tidy.

    We were happy to see our Science Olympiad team putting in another Sunday afternoon of hard work that we’re sure will pay off in learning and accomplishment during the upcoming Washtenaw Elementary Science Olympiad on May 12th, at Pioneer High School.

    Highlights of this past week included our Disability Awareness Workshop in which 4th grade students experienced the obstacles that many of us face due to physical, developmental, and learning disabilities. Students were surprised to see how challenged they were by the scheduled activities and also expressed the empathy we are hoping to grow in all of us during this event. It took lots and lots of you to make this happen. We’re grateful.

    Thank you to those who hosted and participated in the first annual Burns Park Family Sing on Saturday evening.  Whether on the stage or in the audience, fun was had by all! It was a special moment when we sang our Burns Park school song to honor our friend Mr. Thompson as we remembered that music was such an important part of his life. It was good to be with each other for the simple and consoling experience of song.

    The Burns Park Run is coming up in less than two weeks! It's on Sunday, May 6, and it's an event that kids can run or walk, with family or friends -- and often, kids do a combination! Adults sometimes run, sometimes walk, sometimes cheer from the side of the road or at the start and finish lines, and sometimes volunteer. Wherever you and your kids fit, everyone is welcome to join in this family-friendly event. Scholarships to cover registration and running shirts are available, and if that interests you please contact Mr. Hatt by email or phone.

    We thought to keep our message short this week. Please keep staff in your thoughts as we share news of Mr. Thompson’s passing with our students in grades three through five during the school day tomorrow and we grieve the loss, with you, of our friend and colleague.

    As mentioned in previous emails, we will have many folks at school tomorrow to lend a listening ear and provide counsel. If you are feeling sad about our loss and would like to speak with someone, please let us know. Folks are here to help.
