Welcome to H.C. Burgard Elementary School!
On behalf of the staff at H.C. Burgard Elementary School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2013-14 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
Please read and review the Student/Parent Handbook with your child. The handbook includes polices on attendance, transportation forms, discipline, and health information. If you have any questions about the rules and expectations, please feel free to contact me or to discuss them with your child’s teacher. It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding standards related to appropriate behavior for a safe and productive school year.
We have some changes to our staff roster. I would like you to help me welcome Miss Gemmill (Learning Support Teacher), Mrs. Reed (Pre- Kindergarten Teacher), Mr. Reginella (Music Teacher), Mrs. Snavely (Grade Three Teacher), Mr. Fair (Grade Four Teacher), and Mrs. Erin Brubaker (our afternoon Pre-Kindergarten instructional aide).
The wonderful H.C. Burgard staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you.
