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

Teacher Appreciation – More Important Now than Ever 

It is always essential to show our appreciation to teachers as they have undoubtedly chosen one of the hardest professions currently. This year, more than ever before we need to be more intentional about showing appreciation and going deeper in building relationships in our districts.

“To be clear is to be Kind”. This is the motto we should be living this year. Clear in our expectations, realistic in the execution of those expectations and it needs to be clear that working with teachers to help our students is a priority for Burton ISD.

Teacher appreciation does not always mean a special lunch or gift card. Teacher appreciation is making sure that we have built relationships with teachers to check on their families, to make sure they are taking breathers and are doing well. A phone call, text, email or simple conversation is important this year- more than ever, to show our teachers that we see them as individuals too. Take some time to show our staff that you really care this semester. Thank you!

Our staffs’ work @ Burton ISD contributes to advancing educational goals and helps us concentrate on reaching group achievements. Each individual staff member adds value to the entity at large to maintain a commitment to students and the district. 

Happy School Librarian Appreciation Day to Mrs. Karen Douglas who always is there to promote and encourage the love of reading for our students.  

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 @, 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!
