The annual Burley Book Bash is coming soon! Your child will have the opportunity to interact with, learn from, and be inspired by a professional author. Order books TODAY by 9:00 p.m. This is an extended deadline due to technical difficulties! Books will be signed by the author. Visit burleypta.org/book-bash for information and links to order!
This event means so much to the kids -- and YOU can help make it happen! There are 3 easy steps to sign up and get CPS volunteer approval:
There's fun planned for ALL ages - so mark your calendars, get your costume ready (no masks or toy weapons please!) and join us for a "spook-tacular" time at Burley's biggest family party of the year!
Stay tuned for more detail on tickets, activities, and more.
Contact your room parent if you'd like to help plan your classroom activity. Or join a Fun Fair committee -- admissions, raffle, decorations, food, bingo, or haunted house (7-8)! We need lots of people to make this event a success. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. More volunteer information is coming soon.
Donate Raffle Prizes!
Check your closets! Donate new or barely used toys, games, and books to be Bingo prizes. The collection begins Monday, October 15th.
Specials Teachers, Diverse Learners, Explore the Building
Feel free to explore the building or visit our Specials classrooms (STEAM, Art, Physical Education and Technology) and the Diverse Learners classrooms. These classrooms will be open and the teachers will be available to talk with you about their curriculum and goals for the year. Say hello to Ms. Plocher, Ms. Nash and Mr. Urbina who will be around the building throughout the evening. Diverse Learners and Specials classrooms will remain open for all three sessions.
Pre-K through 8th Grade Homeroom Presentations
Pre-K through 8th grade homerooms will open starting at 6:00pm. Visit your child's classroom, meet their teachers and attend a presentation on what your child will be learning this school year and how you can support your students at home. There will be a limited time at the end of the half hour session for a short question and answer session.
Repeated Pre-K through 8th Grade Homeroom Presentations
Teachers will be repeating their previous presentation for parents who have more than one child at Burley. If you wish, consider visiting another Specials or Diverse Learner teacher.
Please remember - children are encouraged not to attend Curriculum Night. This event is designed for parents only.
We are offering two alternate times for completing school forms and paying fees:

- Saturday, September 8 from 10:00-2:00 p.m. in the lunchroom
All families must submit:
- Family & Emergency Contact Form (online)
- The CPS Media Release form (print and sign, or sign at Early Bird)
- The CPS Family Income form (print and sign, or sign at Early Bird. CPS requires all families to complete this form, including those not applying for assistance.)
Please visit the school calendar for other important dates, and keep an eye on your email for ongoing parent updates as we prepare for another wonderful year of learning and friendship. As always, we are grateful for the support, flexibility, and understanding of our families.
We know many families are already thinking ahead to the coming school year and the supplies needed to get off to a great start. Please use the following lists to complete your school supply shopping before school begins.
You can drop off school supplies on Early Bird Day, which is a convenient opportunity to complete back-to-school forms and pay fees (details coming soon). If you are unable to come to Early Bird Day, your child may bring supplies on the first day of school.
