What a great time to be a Burton Panther!!!
HAPPY SPRING BREAK 2022!!! Enjoy some rest and relaxation during the week! Have fun. Rejuvenate and fill your own bucket. Connect with those who make life become a bit easier.
We are a little over halfway through the school year, but there is so much still left to do. For our educators-don’t get overwhelmed or try to capture the moon, but simply try to remind yourself why you are in this profession. Create an excitement for the day that cannot be duplicated. Provide an engagement and a link for students to remember content more specifically compared to an average school day. Education is one of those things that you get what you put into it and we need to be reminded of this on a regular basis. When we are all in, we can see the benefits and results easily.
The students and teachers in Burton ISD and across the nation have had so many struggles this year. Building relationships with students has been more important than ever. A simple arrangement where we can have meaningful conversation with each student can change a student’s life. Our students have been coming to school with much more trauma than we have ever seen. Many of their lives at home are more stressful than ever with either financial or social concerns. The Burton ISD students know that we care and that we make time for them-that is when we see change. Definitely, not an overnight fix. In many cases teachers won’t know the impact of these chats till years later- but the value is indisputable.
Take every moment and make it count. Not everything has to be done big like a transformation. A simple note of encouragement or a smile can have a lasting effect. Being a difference-maker is not always visible each day- but we know that Burton ISD has a lasting effect on students and teachers.
We welcome you to visit Burton Independent School District and thank you in advance for taking time to find out more about our schools, our professional staff, our exemplary students, and our excellent academic programs. Burton Schools are a perfect place to get an education that will prepare your child for a bright future.
There is a tremendous amount of community support that goes into the success of our programs in Burton ISD. We appreciate everyone who helps make a positive impact on our schools. All of us working cooperatively make Burton ISD better together. So very proud to be a BURTON PANTHER!
Lots of great things going on this semester. Follow all of our activities on the Burton ISD website @ www.burtonisd.net, check out the Burton ISD app, and keep up with the latest happenings on the Burton ISD Facebook page and other social media venues.
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 2022!!! Have a blessed week and GO BIG RED!
