We look forward to seeing you at the Fall Festival this Thursday from 5:30-7pm! Bring a blanket, dinner for your family, and a nut-free dessert to share. Buy a drink and support the 5th graders in fundraising efforts for graduation. We're looking for a few helping hands to assist in clean up. Questions?

During the 2013-14 school year the city of Ann Arbor put traffic calming measures (speed bumps etc.) on Wells St. at several of the intersections. However, this has not made it more safe for the children at Burns Park Elementary with cars speeding up in front of the school and ignoring the stop signs (perhaps trying to make up for "lost time" at the speed bumps). Here are a couple of videos (30 sec & 13 sec) taken a few days ago that highlight this issue.
Welcome!!! If you have a student who is attending Burns Park for the first time, and if you have any questions at all about our school or processes, please use the contact form and we’ll get an answer for you!
Look for the New Family Packet in the office if you did not attend the New Family Orientation.
On behalf of the students, staff, teachers and parents, we are so pleased that your family is joining the Burns Park community. You will find Burns Park to be a friendly school, where families work and play together to create a safe and comfortable environment for our children.
Missed the meeting? Look here first!
In an effort to include more parents and teachers in the workings of the PTO, minutes of all PTO meetings are posted here.
