Dear Families,

We are happy to announce that our 'Vote YES Twice' for Minneapolis Public Schools campaign passed in last week's election.  We are so grateful for the support of our voters.  Thank you for believing in Minneapolis Public Schools and Burroughs Community School!  
There was a wonderful turnout at the Minneapolis Event Centers on Friday evening! Thank you to all who attended the auction!  Also, thank you to our PTA Auction Committee who put so much time and effort into making this a fun and successful event.  Again and again I am in awe of the support our families and community provide for our students and staff.  Without you, so many of the experiences we provide for our students simply would not be possible. 
As we launch into the 2nd quarter of the school, I find myself reflecting on our Burroughs Community School Mission:
Our mission is a commitment to inspire all students to be College, Career,
and Life Ready, well-educated with a sense of determination, bravery, and the capacity to fulfill their aspirations.  Burroughs students will be Global Citizens who give back to society and continue to be lifelong learners.
How are we working towards and upholding this mission in all we do with our students? is a question I ask myself on a daily basis. Our staff works every day to create safe, nurturing, engaging, and non-judgmental learning environments where our students can share their feelings and, as a community, we can come together to support one another in this journey of school and life.  We expect that each child is treated with kindness and respect and sees themselves a valued member of our community.
