Happy New Year! We hope you had festive and restful break!

Thank you to the volunteers who signed up for the Burbank Library Shelf Read today. Thank you to Robin Hines for running the event and bringing treats, and Amitha Knight for coordinating volunteers! 
Note: In December, 2018, room parents distributed a pdf. document of the proposed PTA by-laws, which we are required to update every few years. If you did not receive a copy, please contact Liane Brecknock at On January 16, 2019, we will be holding a membership vote to adopt this updated document. 



Presentation for parents on Wednesday, 1/16/19 @ 8:45 a.m.
Coffee and breakfast treats will be provided by the PTA

Please mark your calendars...

BPS Science Curriculum Director, Jessica DeFrances, will present about the science curriculum at the Belmont elementary schools, on Wednesday, January 16, at 8:45 a.m. in Burbank cafeteria. Coffee and breakfast treats will be provided by the PTA. The science curriculum has changed in recent years, so please plan to attend and learn what our young scientists at Burbank have been up to!

Annual Appeal a Resounding Success!

The numbers are in and this year's Annual Appeal Drive was an overwhelming success! Over 50% of Burbank families and many Burbank staff and teachers participated. Thanks to your generous contributions, we have raised $30,835 at last tally, putting us at slightly over our goal. Great job Burbank! 

If you haven't given to the PTA yet this year, any additional contributions can help expand our funding options. Donate via the link below or by sending in a check made out to Burbank PTA.
