incredible, PTO-funded program

Creative Arts & Sciences—a series of in-school programs fully funded by the PTO—brings fun, educational and inspirational programs to Burr School. These curriculum-enhancing, interactive programs include scientists, authors, engineers, artists, dancers and even live animals, and provide a real-life extension of what kids are learning in the classroom.

Check out this year’s schedule below and mark your calendars. Don’t forget to ask your child questions about what they learned. You’ll be surprised with their wealth of information about owls, life in Ghana, the writing process, or metamorphosis!  Better yet, take a field trip to your child's class and witness the magic yourself.  Parents are always welcome.

For more info, contact Brenna Fisk or Patty Devaney.

Photos pictured above feature many of the amazing Creative Arts & Sciences programs that have taken place at Burr over the last few years.
