    Monthly Character Read Aloud

    Burton Valley will continue to focus on Monthly Read Alouds in the 2022-2023 school year. We will continue our focus on character, but will also center the focus around Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. We will be sharing a complete list of books at Back To School Night.  

    We're Choosing Kindness!

    At Burton Valley, we believe that kindness is the roof supported by our pillars of character. To be Kind, one must be Trustworthy, Respectful, Responsible, Fair, Caring and a good Citizen. Every few weeks, we learn about a different character trait and show how it relates to our school's focus on kindness.  This year, we are focusing on each pillar even closer and will be using new words to recognize our students.  They are: Courage, Hard Work/ Perseverance, Optimism, Integrity, Cooperation and Empathy.  Together, these words represent the word CHOICE....which, together, we will continue to guide our students to choose kind and make the right choice.
