Conferences: Fall parent/teacher conferences take place October 16 and 17. Please email your student's teacher if you have any questions about conferences.
 
MORE Volunteers Needed to Support GEMS (Girls in Engineering, Mathematics, and Science): Ms. Robin Weber and Ms. Spooner will be offering GEMS as an afterschool opportunity for our 2nd and 3rd graders this year. We have received a very positive response from students and families who have expressed interest in participating in this opportunity. In light of this, we are looking for one or two parents who would be interested in assisting Ms. Weber or Ms. Spooner on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:40-5:15 throughout the year. This would be a paid opportunity. If you are interested in more details, please contact Ana Bartl.

Vote YES twice for kids! With the election right around the corner, check out this website for more information about the Minneapolis Public Schools referendum and Vote Yes twice campaign.
 
Fall for Burroughs Auction - On Friday, November 9 the Burroughs PTA will be hosting its annual Auction Fundraiser. This is one of our biggest fundraisers and a fun opportunity for our adult community to connect.The funds raised from this event support so much of what we are able to do here at Burroughs. Tickets can be purchased online here
 
Coffee with the Principal: Beginning in October, Ms. Bartl will be hosting Coffee with the Principal on the second Friday of each month from 9:30 to 10:30 am. This will be an opportunity to connect with our principal and others in the community throughout the year. 
 
Dismissal: This is an extremely busy time of day.  Please communicate to the teacher or office in person or in writing well in advance of dismissal time if your child will be going home in an alternative way i.e. instead of taking the bus home they will be picked up or have permission to walk to their destination, etc.
