Dec 21, 2021 PTA News and Updates

| Return|

Dear Families,

We hope you are all able to have a peaceful school break and return in January ready to learn!  We will be entering a new year with our new Principal, and we look forward to helping her feel welcome and learn about our wonderful Burbank community and students.

January and February will be quiet times for the PTA in regards to community-wide events.  We are working with the district and following all health and safety protocols as they evolve, which for us means we will be pushing back dates for events like STEM Night (which normally would have happened in February).  We are excited to bring you adapted programming outdoors in the spring for both STEM Night and Multicultural Fair!  We will, however, be able to finally host our 25th Annual Geography Challenge on a grade-by-grade basis.  Watch for news and sign ups in January! (A full revised calendar of events will be coming soon.)

Currently we have raised about 52% of our Annual Appeal target and would love to invite you to donate while there is still time in 2021 (and count it toward your 2021 taxes)!  You can give online or send a check into school addressed to the Burbank PTA.  We also have two upcoming "shopping days" where Wilson Farms and Belmont Books are partnering with us to donate a share of their proceeds during certain hours.  (Wilson Farms will be on 1/24, Belmont Books on 2/2.)

As we look back at 2021, we are glad we have been able to do so many amazing activities with and for our students.  In addition to the amazing Fall Social, we have given out three grants to teachers, ran garden enrichment for every class in every grade, hosted a teacher appreciation breakfast, and provided enrichment programs like the Concord Museum's "Exploring Native History Through Archeology" which was for our third graders.  The rest of the year will see science programs, author visits and more for our students.  Your gift today will help make these programs happen!

Finally, we are looking for anyone who may be interested in a PTA Board position next year If you think you might be interested in any of the PTA Board roles (Treasurer, Secretary, President, VP of Events, VP of Grants, VP of Enrichments) next year or in the future, please feel free to reach out to us at maryleeburbankpta@gmail.com for more information.
