Curriculum Night: Please join us next week for Curriculum Night to learn more about our academic goals and activities for the school year. See the Upcoming Events section above for dates and times. Childcare is available for ages 3 and up.

School Spirit Fridays: Celebrate your Burroughs Spirit every Friday! Encourage your children to wear our Burroughs colors (navy and yellow) or any Burroughs Spirit Wear they have. Need to stock up? Stop by the atrium before or after school on Fridays in September or purchase online. Online orders can be picked up in the school office two full school days after the order is placed. Youth and adult sizes are available. All sales go to the PTA. Gift certificates also available. Email Linda McConley with questions or to learn about co-chairing. 

Mindfulness: Thanks to support from our PTA, Jen Feriancek of Wise Owl Mindfulness will be working with our staff and students again this year. We are excited to have Jen back helping us to incorporate mindfulness--being aware of the present moment with kindness--into our 'way of being' as a community.

Arrival: For the safety of our students, unless they are enrolled in the Minneapolis Kids program, please do not drop them off at school until 8:55 am. Burroughs staff is typically in meetings from 8 to 8:55 am; therefore we do not have the capacity to supervise children during that time.

Traffic & Safety: Please help keep our students safe by following our Traffic & Safety procedures during pick-up and drop-off times. Click here for more info.
