Kite Day Friday April 7th

All visitors for all events must be scanned into our Raptor System. If you have already been scanned in at least once this year, you can reduce time standing in line to check-in for Kite Day. Look for the RSVP on the Burden Website to register for your Panther Pass. On the day of the event you can just pick up your pre-printed badge.

Traffic Safety Reminders

To ensure the safe arrival of your most precious cargo, we have procedures in place to reduce cross-traffic on Drystone, improve traffic flow, and decrease driver frustration so you and your child can have a positive start to your day.

As a reminder, cars are to enter the Burden campus, and only release students in our designated drop-off zones. By following these procedures we can ensure your student arrives safely under the supervision of Burden Staff.

4th Grade Field Trip

Our 4th grade field trip will be on April 19th and 20th. We will be going to the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin and the Spirit of Texas Theater to see the film "Shipwrecked".


Wednesday, April 19

Openshaw, Wood/Lively, Tucker/Bishop, Stippick/Haffelder,

Thursday, April 20

Lynn/Bahr, Barreras/Powell, Burks/Teter

***Please have your child to school on time the day of the field trip. We will board the buses at 8:45 a.m.

We plan to return to Burden at approximately 2:00.***

***Students must have an E or S for conduct for the 5th 6 weeks. Students on a Hero Card must be making sufficient progress. Students who do not meet this criteria will remain at the school.***

Chaperones: Due to limited space, we are only asking for 2 parents from each class to join us on the field trip to the museum. Chaperones will need provide their own transportation and pay for their own ticket(s), but all 4th graders must ride the bus. The museum is $12 per chaperone and $7 for the movie. Payment for chaperones will be taken at the museum. Please make arrangements for any younger children/siblings as we are not able to accommodate for them.

*Note: It is not necessary that chaperones join us for the movie, so a ticket may not be needed for that.

What: Students will be taking a tour of the first three floors of the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum and attending the Texas Spirit Theater featuring “Shipwrecked”.

Cost: The cost for students is $5 for the museum and the movie. Please send cash only. It is extremely difficult for us to make change, so we ask that you send in the correct amount.

*If you would like to send in any additional money to sponsor another student, it would be greatly appreciated.

What to wear: Tennis shoes and weather appropriate clothes. It would be nice if students are able to wear a Liberty Hill, or purple shirt if possible.

What to bring: Sack lunch & a drink (bottled water is preferred-no sodas please). If your child will need a sack lunch from the cafeteria, please fill out the attached form and return to school.

***Please have the permission slip and money turned in by Wednesday, April 12, 2017***

We are looking forward to a fun filled day exploring our great state’s past!

Become a Preferred Panther!

In order to better protect everyone at our campus, all visitors are required to show a valid, government-issued I.D. when visiting our campus. In order to expedite your entry into our campus during large crowd events, we recommend that you obtain a Panther Pass. You will be able to:

  • Pre-Register to attend select school events ahead of time
  • Pre-Register OTHER family members who wish to attend, as long as the family members have completed the 1-2-3 steps of obtaining a Panther Pass at our campus
  • Avoid the long visitor lines waiting to be scanned into Raptor and have your own badge waiting for you at the front office for large events


  1. Bring a valid photo I.D. into our campus
  2. Your information will be entered into our Raptor system
  3. Obtain your Visitor Badge and enjoy your visit with us!

Now you have Panther Pass status in our Raptor System at our campus.

Next time you visit our campus, you will no longer need to bring a photo I.D. with you!

We look forward to seeing you soon!
