In an effort to stay “green” Burke-Memorial School will continue paperless communication with families. Please read about the different ways you can connect with our school community:
Website - Visit http://www.medwayschools.org/burke-memorial-school to review updates and reminders about our school (under News and Notes), find teacher websites, locate the lunch menu, find our Student-Parent Handbook and review the school and district calendar (see more below). From this site you can also navigate to our district site as well as to our Parent Teacher Organization site. If you would like to receive electronic updates about posts added to the News and Notes section of this website you need to visit the site and click on the STAY CONNECTED link in the Action Center on the bottom left hand side of the page
Teacher Websites- Visit http://www.medwayschools.org/node/2349/teacher-pages to connect to our teacher web pages. Each of our teachers will maintain web pages this year in an effort to enhance home-school communication. Expect to see information about your child’s teacher, classroom routines, schedules, assignments and curriculum updates posted throughout the school year. Your child’s teacher will direct you to his/her webpage during our Curriculum Nights in early September.
Calendar- Visit our website http://www.medwayschools.org/burke-memorial-school and scroll on the right hand side to view our school calendar. We’ve done our best this year to include as many dates and events as possible so that parents can begin some long-term school year planning. You can also view and or download the district calendar by clicking on the following link: http://www.medwayschools.org/sites/medwayps/files/file/file/2015_2016_school_year.pdf
Blackboard Connect- We use Blackboard to automatically communicate with parents when students have not been called in as absent. When this occurs, parents will receive an automated call from the school with specific follow up directions.
Twitter- For quick, under 140 character updates & reminders about school events, follow us on Twitter @Burke-Memorial. We also post photos of school happenings and publicize snow days and delayed openings on this page. Please consider following us to receive quick updates and reminders from Burke-Memorial.
Principal Teas- Several times a year the principals of the elementary schools host evening “Teas”. These informal gatherings provide parents with the opportunity for face to face communication with the administration at each school. During these meetings, principals share updates about the school and provide parents with the ch ance to ask questions about programs and curriculum. Look for information about these meetings in email blasts, Twitter reminders, and on our school website.
