Have a fun and safe summer!

2, 4, 6, 8, First Grade is really great!



Dear Parents,

We had a great year together!

I have been blessed in having the wonderful experience of working with your children this school year. I dearly miss them already!

Thank you for all your kind words, cards and gifts.  I'm so thankful that I was able to see so many of you on our last day of school and/or on our Zoo field trip.  Below is something that I have been talking to you and your children about and it is worth repeating. 

Studies show that students may lose up to two months of learning during summer vacation. Your child has worked hard this year and I want her/him to be completely ready for next year. I sent a few things home, including their two Journals, with the hope that you will work with your child a little bit each day to retain their reading, writing, and math skills, in addition to encouraging them to go onto Lexia and Splash Math. Students should use their same log-ons that they used during the school year. Thank you in advance for helping your child to continue on their learning journey this summer.

I have scheduled two Monday mornings (June 24 & July 15, 9 – 10 am) for your children to meet me at the Burlington Public Library. We will read a story together, learn/review where things are and then have an opportunity to chat and check out a book or two, if they have a library card. Required paperwork will be available if your child doesn’t have a library card.

Please RSVP to my email address or to the email that I will be sending, just in case someone doesn't see My Page.

My heart smiles in appreciation of you sharing your children with me this year. They are all so precious! I will continue to keep them and all of you in my daily prayers. I hope that you have a summer full of adventure and relaxation.

In case you haven’t heard, I will be the Burlington Catholic School (BCS) Business Manager starting July 1st. I look forward to seeing all of you and your children at the library, Mass, Fun Festival, etc. this summer or at the St. Charles campus in the fall, if not before.

God bless,


Mrs. Ellen Stevens
