    Dear Burr Families,

    It's hard to believe in less than 2 weeks school begins! On behalf of the entire Burr Staff, I am beyond excited to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! We look forward to working together with you to make a positive difference in the lives of each and every child.

    The Burr Elementary Staff has been busy preparing for the arrival of the many new faces we will welcome to our family this year. We can't wait to see everyone on the first day of school on Tuesday, August 30th! In addition, please mark your calendar for our annual Bulldog Day on Monday, August 29th, 5:00-7:00 PM. This is a wonderful, informal event where parents and students can walk through the school, meet their teachers (please note: some may be unable to attend as this is a voluntary event for all), peek inside your child's classroom, and visit our PTO in the gym where they will be selling ice cream and spirit wear. Your children may even get their picture taken with Buddy the Bulldog:)

    As you begin to prepare for the school year ahead, I would like to provide some information that will help you in that process. Our Bulldog Bulletin newsletter contains some of the basic "getting ready for the school year" information and is sent to you via email. As the first day of school gets closer, I will be sending out more information in regards to arrival/dismissal procedures, bus stop information, first day news, and more! Please watch your email for these informational Bulldog Bulletins.

    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call our office at 586-797-4100.

    Enjoy the rest of these beautiful summer days:)

    Mrs. Poleski
