Meet the Teacher

Please join us Tuesday, Sept. 24th, from 6 PM - 7:30 PM for Burleson High School's Meet the Teacher Night. Classrooms visits (in no particular order), brief 9th & 10th grade Parent Meeting (see Academic Growth @ BHS for details), and a Sr. Parent Meeting are just a few things we will have going. The front doors and bus doors (on the student parking lot side of building) will be open. We look forward to visiting with each of you!

Academic Growth at BHS

Burleson High School is currently administering the MAP test for Reading, Language Arts and Math for 9th and 10th graders. We give MAP tests to determine students' instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year.

At Tuesday night's Meet the Teacher there will be a brief presentation for 9th and 10th grade students' parents to review why we administer the test, how it is being used to address your student's needs and how parents can interpret the results.
Please join us, in between classroom visits, in the cafeteria from 6:30 PM - 6:45 PM.

Can't Attend? An email with the information from the presentation will be sent out to all 9th & 10th grade parents following the meeting.

Senior Parents (c/o 2020) Meeting

After visiting your student's classrooms at BHS Meet the Teacher Night, Tuesday please join us in the BHS Auditorium @ 7:00 PM for a Sr. parent meeting. We look forward to seeing your there!

Can't Attend? An email with the information from the presentation will be sent out to all 12th grade parents following the meeting.
