Burnside Elementary has been buzzing through the month of October and here we are coming up on November! It is starting to feel like fall outside. I have included highlights from October in the newsletter as well as reminders for November.


As always, please contact me at school with any questions! I hope to see everyone at Parent/Teacher conferences on November 11th or 16th.

October was National Bullying Prevention Month

National Bullying Prevention Month was held in October. Our activities for October were to show unity for kindness, acceptance and inclusion, AND to send a visible message that no child should ever experience bullying.


During the first week of October, we held a door decorating contest and Mrs. Sjoblom's class won the Grand Prize. During the Second week of October, we made a unity chain that described one way to make Burnside a safe place for all or what makes students unique and proud about yourself.


Unity Day was Wednesday, October 20th! We wore ORANGE to show unity for kindness, acceptance and inclusion, AND to send a visible message that no child should ever experience bullying.


For our last activity, we talked about how we are better together and as a community we need to support others, treat others with kindness, be accepting of people's differences, and help include those who are left out.
