Mid-October Already?

It's true what they say, time flies when you're having fun! There's been a lot of fun to go along with all the learning here at Burnside this month! A couple extra special events have included Family STEM Night, where we welcomed almost 200 people. Second graders went on a field trip to the MN Zoo and 3rd graders went to Oxbow and the planetarium. Never a dull day!

Please take a look at this #AwesomeBES News and see what else is in store for our students and families in the month ahead!
