The BEST of Burkland!
A weekly newsletter of HBB news and happenings
Welcome Back! It has been a great 1st week here at HBB and we are excited for the year ahead! The kids have gotten back into the groove and our first graders have learned their way around the building pretty quickly! Thank you to everyone who has come out over this past week to help with arrival and dismissal!
We have a busy year ahead of us so as we get the year started we like to remind all parents to stay up to date with all our events by following our Google calendar, follow us on Facebook or Twitter and be sure to read our weekly email!
We are blessed with an AMAZING PTA and we would like to encourage anyone who is interested in getting involved at HBB to consider joining the PTA. Our PTA organizes all of our fundraisers and fun events and all the money raised goes right back to the kids. Money raised goes to funding everything from field trips and enrichment assemblies to afterschool clubs. Our first PTA meeting is this Tuesday (9/10) at 6:30 pm and we would really like to encourage you to come out and see what being involved in PTA is all about!
Do you have an interest in helping HBB develop the School Improvement Plan? If so please consider joing the School Council. The School Council is a committee of teachers and parents that work collaboratively with Administration to develop the School Improvement Plan. To join you must commit to meeting once per month after school hours.
If you are interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If we have more than 4 parents express an interest there will be an election held during Open House on September 18th.
Open House is almost here and we hope you will be able to make it. Open House is planned for this Thursday September 18th from 6:30 – 8. Open House is a great opportunity to learn about the curriculum, see your child’s classroom and meet the teachers and staff. Please remember that Open House is not a time to discuss individual concerns about your child with the teacher. Should you have specific concerns as it relates to your child we ask that you please reach out via email or phone. We will also have sign up sheets available for Parent Teacher Conferences, which are coming in November. Parent Teacher Conferences is the time to discuss individual concerns and to find out how your child is doing.

5th Grade Leaders
If you are a parent of a child in grade 5 please take a moment to talk to your child about what it means to be a leader, to be responsible and about the power they have to make a difference!
