Jan 2017 Update

Happy New Year!

We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and was able to enjoy time with family and friends. We are excited for 2017 and have many activities planned for the rest of the school year. Here are some upcoming dates/activities for January.

Tuesday, January 10th we have the 8th grade open house at Burke. This event is an opportunity for current 8th grade students to visit Burke High School and learn about all the wonderful programs and educational opportunities Burke has to offer as they prepare for high school. The event is from 6:00 – 8:00 PM and we will have a table for the instrumental music program.

Thursday, January 19th will be our next Booster meeting at 7:00 PM in the Burke library. We hope to have you join us and continue the momentum from last year. We have several events on the horizon with HWAA, Jazz Benefit, and Honors Night plus many many other things to discuss.

Thursday, January 19th we will also be staffing Varsity Basketball Concessions. There are two sessions, the first starting at 5:30 PM and the second at 7:00 PM. We need 4 more volunteers, realizing the second session conflicts with our Booster meeting. Please see the SignUp Genius link below and signup for one of the available sessions:
