Our school community has been, and will be, a buzz throughout April and May. From our Music Festival and playing events at Bayfield house and for the town, to our volunteer luncheon and spring concert, book, math and art fair, parents, staff and students have been actively engaged in school related events.
This year, Burkevale is once again hosting the Y’s Men’s Music Festival on May 2nd and 3rd where we are anticipating stellar performances by all Burkevale student entries. The students have been working very hard over the past couple of weeks to refine their musical pieces. A huge thank you needs to be given to Mrs. Gilchrist and Mr. Smith for their dedication to music.
Another exciting upcoming event is our 2nd Annual “Art is All Around” evening. This year, the school council and teachers have partnered together to add a math component to the evening. There will be engaging math activities set up in each class for families to participate in and enjoy together. Every student in the school will also receive a math bag of their own filled with activities and math tools for at home fun. Our evening would not be complete without our spring music concert and book fair. We look forward to seeing all of you on May 18th from 6:00-8:00 pm.
Our school community is also blessed with wonderful volunteers. In May, we take some time to thank these individuals for their selfless commitment supporting our students and school. Thank you for all you do!
A group of students also deserve special kudos for volunteering to play at a former Burkevale student’s celebration of life. My understanding is that they conducted themselves with the utmost respect and that the music they played touched many who were present. Great job students!
