Good evening, Burruss families!
October is off to such a great start! We are working so hard every day. Teachers are conscientious of monitoring student progress and mastery of standards as they plan instruction. Our focus is on engaging everyday instruction that is based on the state standards, which build on each other from year to year. Our staff is doing a beautiful job of having vertical conversations with other grade levels to best prepare students for the next year. I am so proud of the work we are doing!
This Friday night, October 18, is the Elementary Spirit Night at the Marietta High School football game. Burruss students get in free if they are wearing a Burruss shirt! Before the game starts, all schools will recognize their Teachers of the Year, and as I'm sure you know, our TOTY won the overall Teacher of the Year for the entire district! We are having a blast celebrating her this year. Thank you, Mrs. Esquijarosa, for serving our students, staff, and families so well!
We have so many exciting things ahead of us this year. I can't wait to watch your students grow and bloom! Thank you for your support and for believing in Burruss. We are better because you are here!
Please reach out to me anytime with questions or concerns!
