The Burbank Parent Teacher Association

The Burbank PTA is comprised of parents, teachers, and Burbank’s school principal, all working together to enhance our children’s educational, social, and emotional development at Burbank.

The PTA hosts a wide range of activities throughout the school year including the Book Fair, the Fall Social, Reading Night, Field Day, STEM Week, Skating Night, the Multicultural Fair, the Geography Challenge, as well as many classroom enrichment programs in the school.

We invite new and returning Burbank families to attend our bi-monthly PTA meetings to learn more about the good works of the PTA and the educational and fun events that the PTA proudly sponsors. We encourage all families to contribute and get involved as together we foster a strong Burbank school community.

Travel Safely To and From School


As a community we have a shared responsibility to keep students safe. Recent evaluation of Burbank’s routes to school shows the greatest danger to children is traffic congestion around the entrances to school. To help alleviate trouble spots, new parking and traffic regulations on Sharpe Rd have been put in place, effective September 2017. Please follow the procedures outlined here to help all students get to and from school safely, and please share this important information with all caregivers.

Burbank Safe Routes to School Committee


Make a big impact, with a time commitment that works for you…
Be a PTA Committee or Event Co-Chair!

Share your time and talents to enhance the Burbank community. The PTA is building the slate of committee and event chairs for the 2017-2018 school year. Please look over the attached list or view the online form and consider how you might like to get involved. Expressing interest now does not commit you - if you let us know you are interested, we will give you more information. You can decide whether to take it on once you know what the commitment entails.
The PTA is a completely volunteer run organization, and the positive impact felt by students, teachers, and our community is immeasurable. Thank you for giving of your time and talents!
