Volunteer Celebration: We would like to take the opportunity to thank our wonderful volunteers for their generous gifts of time and talent, which make a difference in the lives of the children at Burroughs. Please join us for light snacks and refreshments on Wednesday, May 30, from 4 to 5 pm in our courtyard.
Site Council: Site Council Voting is open now through Friday, May 25. Please refer to the eblast sent to families on Monday, May 21, to review candidates and place your vote. Candidates will be notified of results by June 7.

Community Visioning Event: Over the next few weeks, we will be engaging in a visioning process to develop a three- to five-year strategic plan for Burroughs that aligns with our district's priorities. This process will involve input gathered from students, staff, and families. If you'd like to be a part of this process, please join us on the evening of Thursday, June 14. More details on this event will be coming soon.

Clustering and Advanced Differentiation: Due to the large number of students who are identified as Advanced Learners, we have decided as a staff to place a cluster of identified students in each of our first- through fifth-grade classrooms. This means that each classroom will have a group of 6-13 identified advanced learners. As a result of this decision we will be engaging throughout the 2018-19 school year in professional development that is focused on differentiation. This learning will help us in better supporting the entire range of learners in our classrooms. Please see more about differentiation in the Instructional Insights section.
