We are all so excited about the new school year. Through high expectations, motivation, a challenging curriculum, and a positive and safe school environment, we know our students will achieve success. This school year, you will see changes in the staff, curriculum, schedule and our school as a whole and we anticipate great achievement gains/growth with the implementation of these changes. Burns is now a school that prides itself on providing world-class instruction; creating strong teacher, student, parent, and community relationships; and instilling in children the ability to think, to learn, to achieve, and to care. Our entire staff is dedicated to continuous learning through professional development and use of school achievement data to discover the most effective ways to teach our students. We have high expectations for our students, our colleagues, and ourselves through trust, hard work, and positive reinforcement of our collective strengths.
