Dear Burchfield Family,
I would like to formally introduce myself as the Interim Principal at Burchfield Primary School. I am excited to be given the opportunity to support the great teachers, staff, and families at BPS. Everyone here has been working hard to create an engaging, positive, and fun learning environment for all students through distance learning. Even though this year looked different, our teachers and office staff are here to assist you in any way.
As we navigate through the school year we would like to focus on extending Grace. As a school, we would like to extend grace to our students during distant learning, because it is something new for our young students. We would also like to extend grace to parents as they continue to support their students’ learning as they balance their work and family life. We would also ask for grace towards our teachers as they work around the clock to make distance learning a fun, positive, and engaging learning environment for all our students.
The Burchfield staff is extremely proud of our parents, students and families that have adapted to this different learning environment. We have had great daily student engagement through Zoom where students are interacting with teachers and their peers. Parents and family members have done a great job facilitating and accessing the tools students need to learn.
We are grateful for all the encouragement and support we have received from our community and parents. During these difficult times we will find ways to support each other and celebrate our successes big or small. We look forward to a great year with our students and families.
