Burt Elementary School

A Note from Ms. Mathis and Ms. Karch:

May is here! It is hard to believe we are beginning our last month of this one-of-a-kind school year. We cannot express our appreciation enough to all of our students, parents, teachers, and staff for all of your effort in making it a success, despite all the odds. We put out a challenge to all to do #whateverittakes to make this school year a strong one and there is no doubt in ours minds that mission was accomplished. We have several fun things planned for students this month and look forward to a happy and healthy last month of the 2020-2021 school year. As always, please contact us if you need anything. We are happy to help all of our Burt families!

If your student is a walker, please do not drop them off in our parking lot as this can create a dangerous situation. Walkers are to walk around our playground gates on the sidewalk and enter into the back door of the school. There will be staff members there to greet them until 8:35. Anytime after 8:35, the student will need to come to the front doors and check in as tardy.

The last day of school is May 26th and will be a half-day for students with a 12:05 dismissal.

Congratulations on Your Retirement!!

Coach Clarence Kendrick and Mrs. Shari Donovan are both retiring after decades of service to our school and even more years in education as a whole. We are sad to lose their expertise and warm personalities. They are both engrained into the culture here at Burt. Our students have a deep love and respect for both of them. We are so excited for them and their well-deserved retirement. They are both looking forward to spending more time with family.

Students earned bracelets each day for their effort on TN Ready testing and these three students were chosen as the winners of Fire Tablets.

Thank you to Lisa Knight at Keller Williams Realty for sponsoring this for our students.
