What a great week to be a Burton Panther!!!

Hello Burton Panther community and happy “passed” 2021 BOND! I am absolutely honored to be a part of such an amazing community that supports what is best for kids and truly believes in the future of Burton ISD. Many heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to making the 2021 Bond Election a success and especially those who exercised their right to vote, to let their voice be heard! I am proud to lead the Burton Panthers to continued academic excellence and on to extracurricular accolades. It is definitely a time to DREAM BIG, SPARKLE MORE, and SHINE BRIGHT as the FUTURE IS NOW for the Burton Panthers. We are blessed beyond imaginable in Burton ISD. Follow all of our activities on the Burton ISD website @, our new app, and social media. 

We are so excited that the Burton ISD Bond proposal will provide expansions for Burton High School and Burton Junior High School, allow for Elementary growth, address safety and security, increase kitchen and cafeteria capacity, and upgrade band, fine arts, and athletic facilities. 

It’s pretty awesome to look back at where we have been and look forward to where we are going. One of our greatest accomplishments has been to “build” relationships which has helped us to be able to “build” and strengthen our district and the community. Love that word “build”. Whether we are virtual, in-person, or something in-between, we strive to communicate our vision for the great things to come for Burton ISD. The effort that goes into making Burton ISD one of the best school districts in Texas cannot be understated. Building new opportunities, programs, and facilities for our students might be challenging, but will surely end with positive results. Of course, there is always room to improve and we appreciate it when folks share their ideas about how to make us better. Education-focused thinking is ultimately what keeps us growing and thriving in so many ways.  

TEAMWORK continues to be a key factor in helping Burton ISD embrace what is yet to come. We will surely embrace our history, implement small changes to make a big impact, and with a strong and innovative team who is passionate about their work accomplish so much more together. Get ready for a transformation!

A quote by Helen Keller – “Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.” 

The pride of the Burton Panthers is embedded in all of us whether we are a student, an alumni, a community member, a staff member and employee, a parent, board member and/or a proud supporter and in many cases all of the above. We love our Panthers and like to think that the culture we are providing in educating our students is a reason why parents want their children to attend Burton ISD. We value our school district and always put students first. We are prepared to Dream Big, Sparkle More, and Shine Bright as the Future is Now for the Burton Panthers in 2021!!! Have a blessed week and GO BIG RED!
