What a great week to be a Burton Panther!!!
Hello Burton Panther community and HAPPY THANKSGIVING week! Hope you are all enjoying some festive celebrations with family and friends, gonna eat some turkey, dressing, and pie, and most of all get some much needed time off to rest and relax! Safe travels, if you happen to be going on the road to visit folks or shop.
It is definitely a time to reflect on all that we have to be thankful for and all that there is to be continually counting our blessings for. Our faith, our health, our families and the support of our loved ones, the time we spend with others and those friendships we have formed over the years, having a good job that pays the bills, an education, a roof over our heads, food on the table, and clothes on our back, freedom, liberty, community, happiness, and anything else that fills our lives with personal contentment. Remember during this time to be truly thankful!!!
The Latin spiritus, means “breathe life into” It means caring for ourselves, for others and for the universe. In the true sense, it can also mean building faith, hope, trust and love in the school community. Burton ISD really exemplifies this by getting to know our students, their strengths, and their needs. Students learn best when learning with other students and teachers thrive in collaborative cultures. The science of collaboration, the process of working together to achieve fundamental learning and well-being is the foundation for working in our schools.
We cannot succeed in a complex society without partnering with others. A deeper form of human interaction is experienced whereby people learn from and support each other. Burton ISD is committed to the human values of care and conviction with respect to all our students, and we recognize that focused collaboration is necessary in relation to the daily lives of students and their progression of learning.
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!
