A MESSAGE FROM SUPERINTENDENT CRAIG MARSHALL
I have thoroughly enjoyed all things Burlington this first semester. The message from our students, staff and community is that BURLINGTON ROCKS!
I talked about pride in my first newsletter and how it is evident throughout the community. Energy, enthusiasm, excitement and creativity are traits that are evident as I visit BES, BMS and BHS.
It is fun to see the early elementary students at BES learn social skills and how to read and write. I have witnessed upper elementary students at BES having terrific discussions about literature and diving deeper into understanding not only the answers to questions but how they got the answers.
BMS students have amazed me with their work on science and social studies projects so far this year. I have been able to witness first-hand the great things they are capable of. I have enjoyed watching the staff incorporate public speaking and project based learning into their classrooms.
Our BHS building is always active. It seems like there are events going on all day and every day at the high school. I have observed students designing and creating in shop classes. I have read student papers and enjoyed their creativity in language arts classes. I have seen students utilizing technology to enhance learning. I have enjoyed watching our students succeed in all their activities.
The second semester is upon us!! Enjoy the ride!!!
