Holiday Message 2014
Dear Burlingame School Community,
Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones. In the spirit of the season we would like to thank you for all you do to make Burlingame a great place to be! We cherish our students, staff, and parents and in return we receive the wonderful support of our community! Learning is high on our list as we focus on collaboration, communication, real-life application, creativity and critical thinking. Our students are reading more, writing more and learning how to navigate through the rigor and demands of Common Core. Our teachers are learning the value of shared knowledge as they grapple with new standards, concepts and how to translate this information into learning for their students.
Everyone deserves this time off to be with family and friends. My wish is for you to have a quiet moment with your children to read a favorite story and discuss the characters, or the “why” of the message in the writing, or even the humorous parts of the story. As we approach the end of the 2014 year, perhaps you and your family can share “your story” over the last year as you reminisce about the good times, the sad times and the times you learned about the true meaning of being a family member or friend.
Our sincere best wishes for the days ahead and may you and your loved ones share great times together!
Peace and Happiness,
Hour of Code
As part of Computer Science Education Week (December 8-14), students may participate in the "Hour of Code", a self-guided activity allowing them to try out the basics of computer science. Code.org has launched the Hour of Code to encourage interest in the computer science field and to show all students that anyone can learn the basics of coding.
We are encouraging all Burlingame students to join in the "Hour of Code".
