Thanks for Your Donations to the 5th-Grade Service Project
Tuesday, June 06, 2017 8:35 AM

A BIG, BIG thanks to those of you who have donated items for the fifth-grade class service project, Cheerful Givers! We have received many wonderful gifts, and the fifth-graders are looking forward to assembling the birthday gift bags at their graduation party. The gift bags will be distributed to local food shelves and homeless shelters.

If you still would like to contribute, you may drop off items in the plastic bins in the atrium through the end of this week.

Please email Dianne McConville or Wendy Brown with questions. Thank you all for opening your hearts to those in need by supporting Cheerful Givers!

Help Keep the Courtyard Blooming All Summer
Tuesday, June 06, 2017 8:30 AM

The Burroughs courtyard needs your help this summer! Please volunteer to water (and do some minor weeding) for a week this summer. Students and parents love this chance to take care of their school. The commitment is small, and it's a nice chance to spend time at the school during the quiet summer months! We also plan to hold 2 or 3 evening weeding events this summer, so keep an eye on the Burroughs Parent Group on Facebook for announcements of those dates!

Click here to sign up for a week-long shift this summer. Thanks for your help! Questions? Email Cassie Neu.

Calling all volunteers! So much of what we do could not be done without your support. Please join us on Tuesday, June 6 from 4 to 5 pm in the courtyard to celebrate all you do to support our students and staff.

Send In "Cheerful Giver" Donations By June 2
Tuesday, May 30, 2017 8:10 AM

Hooray! Our Burroughs Community is making it happen! If you haven't heard, during their Graduation Party, Wednesday, June 14, the fifth grade class will be assembling birthday gift bags as a service project for a non-profit organization called Cheerful Givers. These birthday bags will be distributed to local food shelves and homeless shelters.

We have been busy collecting donations the past two weeks, but are still in need of more items. From now through June 2, the fifth graders are asking all Burroughs Students to donate small, unwrapped gifts. Click the headline for more information.

To drop off your items, look for the plastic bins with the Smiley Face balloons in the atrium. No wrapping necessary! You can learn more about Cheerful Givers at www.cheerfulgivers.org.

Please contact Dianne McConville or Wendy Brown with questions. Thank you for your support!

Are you a web-savvy parent looking for an easy way to help out at Burroughs, on your own time? We're looking for someone willing to post news articles on the Burroughs website (usually on Tuesdays to coincide with the Bulletin), and occasional other updates (PTA minutes, Read-a-Thon information, etc.). All of this can be done from the comfort of your home, at any hour. If you think you might be interested in this important role, please contact Kelly Taschler.
