Tiger Times, February 2022

Burt Elementary School

A Note from Ms. Mathis and Ms. Karch:

Happy February and happy belated New Year! We are so glad to finally be back in a routine with our students and staff. We are working towards major goals this semester, preparing for state testing, and getting ready for all of the fun spring events to come in the future. That being said, attendance is critical in the last four months of the school year. We are hopeful that all of the sickness will subside and everyone can be here at school, happy, healthy, and ready to learn and grow. Don't forget that students have access to so many great academic resources via their classlink--there are tools for reading and math that are intuitive to the needs of your student. We definitely suggest using these tools as a supplement in preparing for the end of the year. If you need assistance with how to access these resources ask your child's teacher. Another way to support them academically is to read with them for 20 minutes each night. Research shows they gain new vocabulary at a faster rate when this is done consistently. As always, if you ever need anything feel free to reach out to us here at the school. We look forward to continuing to work with your Tiger this school year.
