Dear Families,
 
I hope everyone had a safe and warm surprise long weekend! The weather the last couple of weeks has been crazy. Despite the frigid temps, we had a great turnout on Saturday for our community reading event. I was also pleased to see so many families at Burroughs yesterday for National African American Parent Involvement Day and the Read-a-Thon opening ceremony. Thank you to all who helped to coordinate these events and to all who joined us to spend a day in the life of your children.
 
In honor of Black History Month, grade-level teams and specialist classrooms engage students in a variety of activities during February and throughout the school year to teach our students about important people, events, accomplishments, and contributions of African Americans to our history and culture. Check out classroom newsletters or contact your child's teacher to learn more about how our students are engaged in learning about African American history.
 
This week and next are short yet busy weeks. For students, the long weekends coming up are a great opportunity to read, read, read so they can earn lots of minutes for the Read-a-Thon. For teachers and parents, Thursday evening and Friday are another opportunity to check in on the progress of our children. We look forward to seeing many of you at conferences.
 
Please make sure to check out the announcements below and the important dates above. As always, feel free to reach out to me with any questions that may arise. 
 
Sincerely,
Ana Bartl
Principal
