Weekly Bulletin

School News:

The Burlington School System is privileged to incorporate the "Bridges: Growing Older, Growing Together" program into some of our 4th grade classes.  This wonderful program pairs volunteer senior citizens with small groups of children in the classroom for an hour a week, over a 6 week session.  During this time, the children have the opportunity to get to know a senior and to learn from their experiences.  It is a wonderful opportunity for kids to learn about a different generation and for seniors to have the opportunity to see how children learn today.  So much has changed in our schools and our approach to teaching.    For this program to be successful, we need seniors who are willing to volunteer an hour of their time once a week for a 6 weeks session.  Many enjoy it so much they ask to do more then one session!  Sessions take place at different times over the course of the second half of the school year. (Depending on the school).  If you know a senior, grandparent or neighbor, who would enjoy getting to know some fourth graders, please encourage them to fill in an application at the Senior Center.  An Orientation Meeting will take place January 6th.  Any questions may be emailed to Caroline Mallard at, list "Bridges" in the subject line.  For more information on this nationwide program:
