Join us at Denny’s

Join us for our LAST restaurant fundraiser of the school year. On THIS Thursday, May 31st, you can feed your family, meet-up with other Burcham families and support the PTA – all at the same time! This is an all-day event, from 7am-midnight so you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner at Denny’s on Bellflower, south of Spring. Tell your friends & neighbors!

Open House Tonight!

Hey Burcham Families!

We’ve got LOTS going on tonight! Drop by your child’s room between 6:00-7:30pm to see the great work they and their classmate’s have been working on. We know the students and teachers are eager to welcome you and show you around!

And don’t worry about dinner…. the PTA has arranged a couple food vendors to make sure you have the convenience of eating at Burcham tonight. Food will be served outside the cafeteria from 5:30-8:00pm… but some items are limited, so eat early, if you can. We will have Mustache Mike’s on campus so you can also get a sweet Italian Ice treat! Food prices range from 50 cents to $5. Please bring cash!

We will also have opportunities to buy Burcham Spirit Wear (T-shirts & Sweatshirts) outside the library. Show your support and get the shirts now so you’ll have them in the right sizes for the Fall! We will also have a vendor selling small trinkets and gifts for less than $5.

Last but NOT least… drop by our Book Fair between 6:00-8:00pm in the library. This is always a fun opportunity to pick out some new books to read at home…. and maybe over the summer!

See you all tonight!!
