This is regarding a field trip to City Hall yesterday. If the trip was to educate students on citizenship responsibility...next time take them on a 2.5 mile walk instead....

my daughtrs went there 2 years and only had 1 field trip. The morning anouncements I felt were always negetive, the thing that I did like was the full day kinder and the great after school program staff.

I will just say that the school is O.K.There are some real good teachers at the school.Some just let the kids who get into trouble all the time get away with it.They are trying to implament some new programs that most of the students and parents do not like.I myself have had problems with some of the staff not keeping their word.They have a few sports that the school does but not that many.As far as parent involement there is not very much.The only ones that do get involed are the ones in the parenting classes.Those are the parents that do not seak English.

Burroughs is a school where the teachers really want the best for their students. I worked at Burroughs from 1998 until 2005 and I can tell you honestly that it was a great experience. Many of the children really want to learn and work hard to reach their goals. What s missing at Burroughs is more involvement by Latino and Hmong parents. There are small groups of parents, but most don t get involved. They should get more involved. The school wants them there. They offer workshops and even English and citizenship classes. Have faith in Burroughs, it has faith in you. Thank you.

I see the reviews for tests stats.I do believe those test scores can rise if parents just help discipline thier child(ern).They have a friendly staff. Teachers here are great. And If parents would help the school, test scores wouldn't be so low.Parents need to care in order for kids to care.
