From the Headmaster

Dear Families:

At yesterday’s assembly, I shared thoughts regarding teenage decision making. I share these with you with the hope that they can generate further dialogue in your homes.

Assembly comments – February 29, 2016

Over the past few months I have had to deal with a variety of avoidable situations. Every single one of them involved decision-making by BBA students. Therefore, I would like to share some thoughts that I hope can help you in your decision-making processes.

How many of you have heard of The Marshmallow Test? This was a psychological test given to four-year-olds back in the 1960s. A little kid was put in a room, given a marshmallow, and told that if he could refrain from eating it for 15 minutes, he would get two marshmallows. Not surprisingly, many kids gobbled up the marshmallow long before 15 minutes had passed, but some didn’t. Some were able to show self-restraint and reap the reward.

The researchers tracked the kids as they went through high school and college and into life. What they found was sort of amazing: those who had been able to resist temptation for greater reward – in other words, those who did not eat the marshmallow right away – did better in school, had higher SATs, had higher college graduation rates, and found greater professional success. Those who were able to delay gratification at four years old were able to make better decisions and find greater success throughout life.

So what’s the lesson? In life, you get tested. You will have impulses – to drink, to steal, to cheat, to lie, to drive too fast. You will have the opportunity to make excruciatingly poor decisions, decisions that can have major, even catastrophic consequences.

One of the problems is that bad decisions can have a drastic impact on your life very, very quickly, whereas it takes time for the good decisions to bear fruit.  Another problem is that risk is often misperceived: it looks like fun until it is too late. It looks tasty. It looks like a marshmallow.

We need to keep practicing how to pause for a moment to keep from really, really bad decisions.

  • When you go to someone’s house for a party, and you are going because there are no adults there so everyone can really cut loose, you are setting yourself up for catastrophic decision-making. Practice going to the movies instead of the big unsupervised party.
  • When you get in your car, or anyone else’s, for that matter, and the driver is under the influence, you are setting yourself up. Practice getting home another way.
  • How many of you buckle your seatbelt every time you are in a car? Practice buckling up!
  • Keep alcohol and drugs out of this school. Practice sobriety, and respect this learning environment.

Life-changing decisions can happen in the blink of an eye: It is easier to cut down a tree than it is for a tree to grow.

I hope these thoughts are helpful in some way. Mainly, I want to see you all grow and flourish so you can enjoy the many, many joys in your future.

Four years go by very fast at BBA. In the short time that we have your sons and daughters in our care, we want them to become better decision-makers as well as better students, athletes, artists, and citizens.

Sincerely,

  Mark only Signature

From the Assistant Head of School

Meg-Bullhorn

Dear BBA Families,

Effective teacher-parent-student communication is fundamental to student success. Over the next two weeks, through interim progress reports and parent-teacher-student conferences students and parents will receive meaningful feedback and essential information to help students improve their learning.

Interim Progress Reports

By March 4 Interim Progress Reports will be released in BBA’s OnCampus parent and student portal.  Interim reports are designed to give a snapshot of each student’s academic performance. All students will receive a grade for each semester course and a comment if they currently have a C or below in the course. Please note that classes that run every other day (all year) do not report interim grades until the end of the third marking period, however, teachers have the option to report a grade and comment at this time.

Parent-Teacher-Student Conferences

Parent-teacher-student conferences are scheduled for Wednesday, March 9th from 1-5 pm and Thursday, March 10th from 1-8 pm with a faculty dinner break from 5-5:45 pm. Students are welcome and encouraged to attend conferences. This is an important opportunity to meet with teachers to discuss progress. If your son or daughter cannot attend, please discuss the following with your child prior to your scheduled appointments — What do they like best? Least? What progress are they making? Where are they most successful? What challenges do they face? How are they using Flex Block? During your conferences, share your personal insights regarding your child. It is often this personal knowledge and perspective that teachers act on and leads to enhanced student learning.

We encourage all parents/students to schedule appointments by following the instructions/link in the resource section of the parent OnCampus portal.  

Please note that if you are a two household family, and another parent has already made appointments, you need to contact Sue Towslee at stowslee@burrburton.org so that she can set up an additional account for your student.

BBA teachers welcome parent-initiated conversation at anytime.  If these days and times are not convenient for you, please email or call your child’s teachers directly to arrange an alternative time.  

As a reminder, school is not in session on Friday, March 11th due to a faculty in-service program.

Best,

Meg

 

 

 

Meg Kenny
Assistant Head of School

Do You Believe in Magic?
Annual Parent Association fundraising gala May 27, 2016

Planning is ramping up for our annual fundraising event, the Do You Believe in Magic? gala, which includes an Online Auction starting March 28 and ending on April 15. The main event will be Friday night, May 27 at Taconic, the new luxury hotel in Manchester.  “Save the Date” cards went out in early February so we hope you have put this date on your calendar. The gala committee has been working diligently to pull together all of the details for this important fundraiser which supports the many student programs offered at our school. We like to thank our co-chairs, Robin Apps and Pauline de Laszlo for their leadership and extend our sincere thanks to all gala committee members for their help over the past few months. It’s going to be a great evening – one you won’t want to miss!

Layout 1There is still an opportunity to support the gala – Corporate Sponsorships are available at the following levels: $250, $500, $1,000, $1,500 and $2,500. We are still accepting items for the Online Auction. And either form of support counts towards the Parent Fund challenge.

Starting March 1, we’ll start posting a few of the great Online Auction items we’ve secured on our BBA Facebook page and we’ll be sending out more information about the Online Auction during the month of March. Stay tuned because we have some fun, interesting things to bid on and we hope you will share the link to the auction with your family and friends.

If you need additional information about the Do You Believe in Magic? gala, wish to reserve a table or tickets, please feel free to call me, Cynthia Gubb, at 802-549-8201 or send me a quick email at cgubb@burrburton.org.

Parent Challenge Update

Our “Top Dog” parent list continues to grow as the year moves on. At the end of February we are roughly a little over 20% and while we still have a way to go to get to the goal, we are making good progress. Here’s a little reminder of our incentives to encourage you to support the Parent Challenge:

Layout 1 1$5 – Bright yellow insulated “Top Dog” grocery tote
$250 – “Top Dog” BBA baseball cap
$500 – BBA umbrella (great for watching spring sports events, or winter ones this year!)
*Along with any dollar amount, a donation of an item or service to the online auction, a donation to Friends of Hockey, or a Corporate Sponsorship will also get you in the Top Dog loop

If you recruit a friend to join you in support of BBA, you BOTH receive an awesome travel mug with the BBA logo on one side and NEW “Top Dog” on the other.

Thank you for all that you do to support the school, financially and through volunteering (Gala Committee, Parent Association, Booster Club, Friends of Hockey, etc.) We’re all in this together with only one goal in mind – to provide an exceptional educational experience for YOUR student.

Sincerely,

Spotlight on the GALE database

The GALE collection is one of the many online resources available to Burr and Burton students. The collection of over 50 databases can be accessed any time from the homepage of the Lisa B. Tuttle Library catalog. A shortcut for the catalog can also be found in the resources page in OnCampus and on students’ ipads. When students are on Burr and Burton’s campus their login to the databases is automatic. From home, they will need a password, which the library staff can provide.

Some of the GALE databases include Environmental Studies, World History, Religion and Philosophy, Fine Arts and Music. Full-text newspapers, a online language course and a car repair library are also available. Some of the features of the GALE collection include translation, text-to-speech technology and citation tools. By utilizing the new Google login with their Burr and Burton email, students can save articles, notes, highlights and citations.

We encourage students to develop their research skills. Faculty members schedule time for classes to come to the library for research support and education but individual students are always welcome to approach library staff for research assistance.
