Congratulations to Mrs. Johnston, Ms. Lellos and Mrs. O'Sullivan's classes! They had their picture taken on Friday with Mr. Okie in honor of having the highest percentage of students that collected for the
2019 Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF.

Mary Lee Burbank students collected over $1,500, which will be provide vaccines, ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF) packets to treat children with severe acute malnutrition, safe water and sanitation to some of the most remote parts of the world, and so much more. Thank you to Breda and Jim Zimkus for supporting the event for Burbank!
Volunteer at Burbank Library Shelf Read
Date: 01/07/2020 (Tue.)
Time: 8:45am
Location: Burbank Library

Twice a year, library volunteers help Robin Hines, our librarian, go through all the books in the library to put them back in order so that our children (and Robin) can find them. This is called a shelf read.
While this is time-consuming work, the excellent company makes it all worthwhile. The more people who come, the faster it goes.

The upcoming shelf read will be Tuesday, January 7th, 2020 after drop off in the morning until we have finished.
We hope you can make it. Even if you cannot stay the whole time, Robin would appreciate your help.
The second shelf read will happen towards the end of the school year.

Thank you so very much for your help thus far with the library!
