Dear Parents and Students,

We now have confirmation that our students’ first day of school will be Monday, September 22, 2014.  With the exception of school photos, we will be following our normal opening day routines as described on our website under General/September Startup. Photos will be taken throughout the day on Wednesday, September 24th.

Our first full day of instruction will be Tuesday, September 23 and it will be a Day 2 block order of EFGH.  The Wednesday, September 24th Collaboration Day and adjusted bell schedule have been cancelled.  For the remainder of the school year, the Day 1 through 4 block rotations and collaboration dates will stay as originally planned to maintain continuity between schools.

Darren Laur’s social media safety presentation for grades 8 to 10 has been rescheduled to the afternoon of Friday, September 26th.  The Grad Boat Cruise has been rescheduled to Thursday, October 16th.  Parent Teacher Conferences, report cards and our September PAC meeting will be rescheduled to later dates. You will be notified of the new dates when they have been decided upon.

We will endeavor to get students settled into an optimal learning environment as quickly as possible.  Thank you for your patience and support.

Mrs. C. Rizzardo, Principal

The Griffin symbolizes Burnsview.  It is believed to have originated from Indo-Iranian mythology, the "Gryphon".  It was absorbed into the Greek culture as a fabulous creature symbolic of strength and became the Griffin.  Griffins are portrayed with a lion's body, an eagle's head, long ears, and eagle's claws to indicate the need to combine intelligence and strength.  The mythical Griffin drew the chariot of the sun and guarded a golden treasure.
We believe that this representation depicts what we strive to accomplish at Burnsview where our students are challenged to become the best they can be physically and intellectually.
