If you are interested in learning how to make veggie sushi, sign up on the Burlingame library website. Pick up a flyer in the Crocker library or see  the poster in the library window if you need more information.

6th Graders at Lunch

6th Graders,


Please be respectful and WALK as you make your way to the MPR for lunch. Also, I have noticed many 6th Graders eating outside. While we have had 6th Grade eat lunch outside a couple of times this year, your designated eating spot is inside the MPR. This is so that everyone has enough space to eat their lunch. Once you are finished eating, and after you throw away all of your trash and clean up your table, you are welcome to go to the blacktop, courtyard, etc.
  

Thank you,
Mr. Miller
