• Dear Parents,

     

                Welcome to Burnet Elementary and a start to a new school year.  We ask that you take the time to look through our webpages as they are a guide for all of us in assuring your child’s success. We believe that it takes a commitment from all the stakeholders (Parents, Teachers, Staff, Community Members and especially the student) for a child to be successful. Together, we will create a year of excellence for our students as we focus on improving student and family engagement. We firmly believe that you are our partner and your participation will enhance the learning for all our students.

                 As you read these webpages, you will notice that the Burnet Faculty is committed to our mission of developing each child academically, physically and emotionally so that they become a productive, contributing, caring adult ready to compete in an increasingly global society.  We will strive to meet each learner’s needs with an exemplary education that will improve their levels of learning. Using academics, fine art, technology programs, dual language and the project approach, we will encourage and promote readers, rigorous problem solvers, technologically proficient and ecologically responsible citizens, who are lifelong learners.

                 Within the webpages you will notice that our core values of proactivity, respect, integrity, development and enrichment are what guide all of us. We expect for our students and staff to be proactive and ready for what lies before them, to respect themselves and everyone around them, to have integrity by doing what is right even when no one is watching, to develop themselves and grow in all areas and of course learn to love life by finding ways to be enriched.  These core values are what make leaders in all of us. We thank you for joining in the journey where every student that enters our doors will one day create a better world for all to live in.

      

    With gratitude,
