Letter from Mr. Cadotte
Tuesday, May 28, 2013 9:10 AM

Dear Families,
 
As the 2012-2013 school year comes to a close, I write this, amazed that time has passed so quickly. The time between the Book Fair and Field Day just flew by.
 
I want to thank the parents for their overwhelming help and support. We have had amazing events: Book Fairs, the Read-a-Thon, tutoring, PTA, Site Council, Artists in Residence, Penny Pals and the Burroughs Fund. Our choirs, band, orchestra, art shows, classroom performances, and Track & Field Day have been spectacular events. Our students took great leadership opportunities with the Yearbook and School Patrol. There is no way I can recall all of the special occasions at Burroughs. I apologize for any event I have overlooked.
 
Retiring…It is with much sadness that we all say good-bye to Asssitant Principal Frank Catchings Jr. Frank has been my ‘right AND left arm.’ I will miss him terribly. Also, congratulations and farewell to 2nd-Grade teachers Sam Larsen, Carol Butchert and Nancy Grein; Librarian/Media Specialist Nancy Hennen; and Art Teacher Slats Fairbanks. These professionals represent a total of 195 years of education to children. We are very grateful to all of these educators for their dedication to Burroughs families and wish them well.
 
Parents, Grandparents & Friends…Thank you for the tremendous support you give to Burroughs every day both financially and with the incredible number of hours you volunteer in our school. We simply could not do this if it wasn’t for all of you.
 
Staff…I am so grateful for the hard work you do each and every day. As the year winds down, I am in awe of the learning you provide for our students. I have witnessed many great performances and research projects. The outside activities and field trips are full of educational experiences and fun. Thank you for your hard work.
 
A reminder that Welcome Back Letters with Room Assignments will be mailed around August 15.
 
Please mark your Calendars for ‘Meet the Teacher’ on Thursday, August 22 from 4 to 5 pm.

Mr. Cadotte
