Dear Parents,

Burlington Elementary School will hold a Bike Rodeo for students in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade on Thursday, September 27th.  Please have your child bring or ride their bike to school that day.  We will not have any organized bike routes to school this year as we have done in the past.  During the Bike Rodeo, your child will learn about how to bike safely and will navigate courses to help them practice biking skills. 

All bikes will be labeled with your child’s name as they arrive that morning.  Please have your child bring their bike to the playground bike rack area where they will be stored for the day. 

If your child does not have a bike, we will have a bike that they can borrow that day.  We look forward to this event and appreciate being partnering with our local hospital and police department to host it.         

Sincerely,

Kandy Davis



Dear Student and Parents,

On behalf of Burlington Elementary School, the staff and I welcome you and your family to Burlington Elementary School for the 2018-19 school year!  We want you to know it is a pleasure to have you as a part of the BES family, where we value the educational commitment we have to students and the partnerships we build with families and the community.  We hope this will be a successful year for you, filled with a great deal of learning for your child.

It is our hope that this handbook will be helpful to you and your family throughout the year. Please read through it as it will answer many questions you may have about your child’s school, including policies, general expectations, instructional programs and parental involvement opportunities.

Our classroom teachers are highly trained to teach a variety of skills to children while recognizing the value of including parents in the process. We encourage you to visit our school, volunteer in the classroom, attend family events, and attend scheduled parent-teacher conferences.  You will be receiving a monthly newsletter that will keep you informed of upcoming events and provide suggestions for how you can support your child’s learning at home.  We know that parents are vital partners in the important job of educating the children of our community!

The BES staff and I will do our very best to support your child’s learning this year.  We fully anticipate your involvement and support as we embark on a new year of academic growth with your child and embrace the educational opportunities that we develop.  If I can be of assistance to you this coming year, please do not hesitate to contact me in person or by phone.    

Sincerely,

Kandy Davis

BES Principal




Next PTO meeting will be Thursday, October 11 at 6:00 p.m. in the BES cafeteria.

On October 10-11, BES students will attend a field trip to the fire department to learn about fire safety.  This is an annual trip where each class will get to participate in fire safety activities and see all of the fire trucks and equipment they use to put out fires.  Each year we look forward to this visit for our students and hope that it is a great learning experience for them. 

More information will be sent home about when your child is scheduled to visit the fire station.




Imagine Learning


Our Imagine Learning online program is also available for home use.  Your students can use the program with the same access code they use during computer class.  This would be a great way for them to keep up with and practice skills that they are currently working on.
