Burns Park Elementary

  • Dear Burns Park Families, 

    Penguins continue to enjoy our March is Reading Month activities. Lots of green was in evidence this past Friday and Kermit the Frog stopped by to make a special announcement thanking us for our support. (As you know, it’s not easy being green.)

    We’re at the halfway point in our two-week online Book Fair. It’s always a great time to open up imagination through great books. It’s easy to participate!

    Thanks to several folks who volunteered to help with this year’s Disability Awareness Workshop. We are still short by about 10 helpers.

    If you are able to help, please consider signing up before spring break as our Disability Awareness Workshop occurs on the Tuesday after we return, which is April 11th.

    Thanks for considering for this very important Burns Park Penguin learning experience.


    This Thursday, at 7:00 PM, we will have an Equity and Inclusion meeting in the Media Center. Please email me if you would like to attend and need child care to be provided.

    We are in the midst of the AAPS District-wide Rotary Food Drive, which lasts through March 24.

    The AAPS, in partnership with the Ann Arbor Rotary and the Food Gathers, is holding a district-wide food drive benefiting our students, families and neighbors. The food bank is in particular need of high-protein products such as peanut butter, tuna, canned meats, beans, chili, hearty soups and stews, plus canned fruit, baby food/formula and Ensure or other nutritional supplement drinks. Items may be dropped off at our school in large boxes in front of the auditorium.

    We look forward to another great week at Burns Park.

    Your Principal,

    Chuck Hatt
