Instructional Insights
Morning Meeting- Morning Meeting is one of our morning routines here at Burroughs that takes place in classrooms between 9:10 am and 9:45 am. Morning Meeting is one component of the Responsive Classroom Approach which aligns with our district's priority of Social Emotional Learning.  Each morning students engage with their teacher and classmates in a morning meeting which includes 4 distinct structures - a greeting, sharing, a quick activity, and a morning message. The purposes of the meeting are to:
  • set the tone for learning and establish a climate of trust.
  • motivate children by addressing the needs to feel a sense of significance and belonging, and to have fun.
  • merge social, emotional, and intellectual learning.
  • teach and practice important social and academic skills
  • School Start Time - A reminder that school starts at 9:10 a.m.  Students who are dropped off, walk, or bike to school can arrive as early at 8:55 and will be allowed to go to breakfast and their classrooms at that time.  Students who arrive after 9:10 a.m. will need to sign in at the office and will be considered tardy. 
  • 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.  
  • 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.
