The second half of our school year brings a lot of activity to Burnside! March through May are definitely our "busy" months when it comes to putting our learning into action. In the coming months, we have several trips planned and other activities such as field days and concerts.
We are working on dates for our spring concerts and will get that information to you soon!
Our spring Book Fair will take place March 9 - 14 to coincide with our conferences. The Book Fair will be open in the IMC during conferences.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

Sunnyside Kindergarten Registration Information
Third Quarter Progress Reports
Burnside teachers will complete the informal progress reports to discuss with families at conferences next week. Official report cards are only completed at the end of Semester 1 and Semester 2, so a less formal progress report will be provided this quarter. Specials (Art, Music, PE, & STEM) are only graded at the semesters, since they only meet with students one out of every four days.
Yearbook Order Form
Paper order forms will also be sent home with students this week.
