The Burruss Blast
A Message from the Principal
Just like that, it's almost April! It's hard to believe that it is already time for Spring Break. I hope you and your family have a wonderful week--fingers crossed for beautiful weather!
This week, a form will come home in Burruss Express called the Parent Input Form for 2019-2020. This form is a new process that gives families a voice as we build class lists for next year, with the understanding that the final decision is made by the teachers and the administrative team. Emails to administration requesting teachers or classmates will not be entertained. Submitting the form is completely optional, and families may choose to fill out some, all, or none of it. Forms must be submitted to the front office by April 12 as we will begin drafting class lists after that date. The form is also attached to this newsletter.
When we return from Spring Break, we will have seven traditional school days before Georgia Milestones testing begins. The schedule is outlined in this newsletter. On April 22, the MAP testing window opens and will remain open for three weeks. The MAP schedule will be shared after Spring Break. We will delay MAP testing for grades 3-5 as late as we can so that they can focus on Milestones without having too many days of testing back-to-back.
Did you know that Marietta City has moved to online registration? If you have a rising kindergarten student, we hope to see you at Kindergarten Roundup on Thursday from 12:30-2:00pm! You can register for kindergarten here: https://cas.marietta-city.org/cas_MariettaGA/login
Please reach out to me or to my assistant principal, Mrs. Hartley-Lewis, if we can ever be of assistance!
