Open House Information

This is a copy of an e-mail that I sent out today if you were unable to open it:

Hello Fifth Grade Families,

We are looking forward to seeing you this Thursday night. We will be spending the
majority of the half hour meeting as a grade level team in the Art room. After
we give our presentation, we will walk down to the fifth grade classrooms where
you can casually look around at your child’s classroom and their work.  The homeroom classrooms will be displaying your child's Hopes & Dreams as well as some of their artwork.
While you are in your child’s homeroom, you will have the chance to sign up for conferences which will take place on Monday, December 8th. We will be doing conferences differently this year. Because your child has different teachers for the various subjects, you can make a choice with which teacher you would like to conference. For example, if your priority is to discuss your child’s math
progress and he/she has Mr. Rabazzi for math, you might want to set up a conference with Mr. Rabazzi. If you’d like to meet with more than one teacher, you can set up an additional meeting at another time. We are also offering phone conferences this year. 
We  wanted to give you this information so that you can think about with which teacher you’d like to meet. Please contact your child’s homeroom teacher if you need more information about which teachers your child has for which subjects.

Camp Bournedale Update!

  It is with disappointment that I write this to inform you that Camp Bournedale has been postponed due the the "high" risk/threat level of EEE in Plymouth and the surrounding communities.  Based on this newly announced "high-risk" and for the safety of all Burilngton students, the Burlington Public School administration has decided to reschedule the trip.  I am not positive about the new dates but it will most likely be in November, if not, sometime in mid-late October.  I realize that this may cause many inconveniences as many of you have volunteered your time and taken days off work to chaperone for this trip. I am sincerely sorry for any problems this has caused.   Kids will not need to re-sign up, nor will chaperones.  We should have more information on Friday.
Camp Bournedale is still on!  More to come....Mrs. Burns

First Day A Success!

Welcome Back!

Room 232 had a great first day!  Students had a whole school meeting, their first gym class, organized their supplies, and played many games/activites to get to know their classmates better.

Tomorrow, they will have gym again and start working on thier Hopes & Dreams for this upcoming year.  Each student went home with a Backpack Folder full of forms to be completed by parent and/or guardians.   Thanks!
