As I mentioned at the Open House presentation, there are some changes to times and methods of reporting student progress at all the elementary schools in Burlington. In the past, three report cards and one parent/teacher conference occurred during the school year. This year, we are piloting two report cards and two parent teacher conferences.
The first parent/teacher conference will occur during the school day on November 13th.
The first report card will be sent home January 16, 2020
The second parent/teacher conference will occur on March 25th with an evening conference window from 5-8pm and optional phone/video conference happening within a two week period.
The second report card will be sent home on the last day of school in June.
As we proceed through this school year, please feel free to share your feedback on this pilot. It is our goal for all families to have regular and ongoing home-school communication through the use of apps, such as, SeeSaw, DoJo , Remind, and Instagram, in addition to the more traditional report card and parent/teacher conference meetings.

Ms. Ierardi has been supporting students in grades K-2-4 while Mrs. Jamie Alper is on maternity leave until January 2, 2020.

Here are ways PHP can help make a difference:
The Food Pantry provides eligible families with food all year round. Families are welcome to come in weekly to pick up fresh food, shelf-stable pantry items, and basic personal hygiene items. No appointment needed! Our pantry is set up as client-choice, where clients choose their own foods from the shelves. Please call the pantry at 781-270-6625 to schedule a time to register.
This is a fund intended to meet the temporary, emergency financial needs of individuals and families who are in crisis, including utility shut offs, lack of fuel, partial rent payments, fire victims and the like. This fund is administered by Burlington Youth and Family Services, whose staff screens applicants regarding their situation. Please call 781-270-1961 for more details or to schedule an appointment.
The Holiday Program helps eligible families during the holiday season. We distribute Thanksgiving dinners to families and elders. In December, we provide gifts of clothing and toys to children, and gift cards to elders. Please call 781-270-6625 for more details.. Financial aid is available for eligible families to help off-set the cost of summer camp. This program is administered by Burlington Youth and Family Services.
