Ability Awareness Week; October 5-9, 2015

Ability Awareness Week; October 5 – 9, 2015

The Ability Awareness Program (AAP) aims to promote understanding, acceptance and appreciation of individual learning and ability differences through fun, experiential activities.  Parent volunteers involve students in activities designed to simulate different disabilities to teach empathy for individuals with these day-to-day challenges.  Guided discussions address issues of acceptance, inclusion, making friends and celebrating differences.

Here are three videos we are sharing with our students and community to “Start the Conversation.”

CAASPP Results

BSD's New Logo, Vision and Mission Statements



Dear Burlingame School District Community,

The 2015-2016 School Year is off to a great start!   In the spring of 2015, with the help of community members, the Board of Trustees requested staff embark on a journey to “refresh BSD’s identity.”  The purpose of the refresh was to clearly represent BSD’s mission and character and to foster community pride in our schools.  Throughout the process teachers, parents and administrators were surveyed and interviewed to capture the essence of who we are as a community.  Three very important descriptions resulted from the communications:

  1. We are a strong community; warm, friendly, caring and we share concern about and for each other.  We are connected and we have pride in our traditions.  We all want what is best for everyone in the district.
  2. We are student centric- kids are at the center of what we do.
  3. We are forward thinking – momentum and progress are key.

Our new Vision and Mission Statements are:


"Challenging the leaders, thinkers, and creators of tomorrow"


"Engage our community to build resilient, curious, compassionate, problem-solvers who are prepared for their future"


The identity refresh included a new logo.  The survey results from the community set the tone and personality for the new logo design.  We set out to find a warm, welcoming, sophisticated yet youthful image.  The Board of Trustees wanted the logo to represent the down to earth nature of the Burlingame Community yet symbolize our high achieving school district.  The result is a logo that is optimistic, student and community centered and is easily recognizable.  Please celebrate our new Vision, Mission and logo as we welcome in the 2015-2016 school year!


Maggie MacIsaac, Superintendent
