Dear Incoming 6th Grade Parents and Students of John Burroughs Middle School,

Parent orientation will take place at 8:30 AM in the auditorium.
If you plan on attending the JB Bear Boot Camp on Thursday, August 4, 2016, please RSVP as soon as possible. Spaces are limited. Transportation must be provided by the parent. Please be sure to check our social media sites for more details.
Dear JB Parents:
As another school year comes to a close, we want to thank you for having worked so diligently with us to make 2015-2016 an exciting and memorable school year.
We want to take a moment to reflect upon the year's successes. We launched a 1-to-1 iPad initiative, Implemented Schoology (our online learning management system), our 8th grade team won first place at the Orange County Pentathlon Tournament, we held our very first blood drive in partnership with Children's Hospital Los Angeles, and our SRLA team participated in the Los Angeles Marathon. We invite you to read more about our school community accomplishments in the JB newsletter.
Plans are already underway to make sure that the 2016-2017 school year builds upon this year's accomplishments. We are carefully reviewing performance data on all our JB Bears to continue providing our students with the appropriate interventions at the start of the Fall semester. It is our belief that through our joint efforts, all JB students can be successful and can be career ready and college bound.
We hope that you and your families have a fun and relaxing summer break. Go Bears!
Check out these summer programs to keep the learning going.

Also, the line to enter will form in front of the Auditorium. A ticket is needed for entrance and once the parking lot is full, we will close the gates and parking will be on surface streets.
