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

Welcome to the Burton Independent School District weekly update. Bond Project information will be shared as it pertains to the planning and construction of our new facilities.

It’s hard to believe that we are well into November. Soon it will be time for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Let the holiday spirit begin! Hope everyone remembered to set your clocks back this weekend. Today is a professional development day for Burton Staff and a student holiday. An extra day to get adjusted to the time change before we start up the last 6 weeks of the 1st semester.  

Thursday, November 3rd was a very successful opportunity for Requests for Proposals for the bond project to be accepted. Future board meeting date will be scheduled to approve the proposals. Please contact the Project Manager Stad Tomlinson with DSA Inc. Construction Management @ (817) 645-8864 if further information is needed related to this process or email with questions about the bond. 

Help us celebrate our Veterans on Friday, November 11th @ 9:00 a.m. in the Burton High School Gym with a very special program. It’s always a great honor to get to recognize our Veterans for their commitment of serving our country!

Congratulations to Burton Lady Panther volleyball, our state cross country qualifier-Peyton Sigsbee and her cross country Burton Panther teammates for a great season. Good luck to Burton Panther Basketball as we start up the basketball season. Join us on Friday, November 11th as Burton Panther Football plays Milano in Caldwell @ 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students-pay at the gate. Burton will be the visiting team. Looking for a win to move us on into the next level of football playoffs. GO PANTHERS!!!

Please feel free to come 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 school year. 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 for the 2022-2023 school year where Learning is Our Superpower as we are Building Our Future!!! Have a blessed day! GO BIG RED!
