John Burroughs Elementary

Hello Burroughs Families.  Please note the following announcements:


1.  Welcome Principal Jenkins

We are excited to have Principal Jenkins join the Burroughs Family.  Join us next week for a Meet and Greet:  Thursday, October 20th at 5:30pm, then join us for the PTO meeting at 6pm.



The Read-a-Thon is a fundraising project where students get donations for reading.  It will start October 24th and run for 10 days.

Each student will create their own web page that will be used to track the minutes read and track donations.  Tomorrow, students will have a paper sent home in their folders with instructions on how to set up their page.  To get a preview, check out

When students raise money, they will earn Rat Bucks that can be spent on prizes.

Stay tuned for more info!


3.  PTO needs more volunteers.

We need your help on committees and helping with Martha's Market.  Check the right side of your Konstella dashboard (main page) and get connected with a committee.  We understand busy schedules but even 30 minutes of your time is helpful.  


4.  PTO meeting

Next meeting, Thursday, October 20th at 6pm after the Principal Meet and Greet.  Child care will be available for $5 per family.
