MUSD Timeline of Action Since 10/31/19

"In the days since the blackface incident on 10/31/19, we have been focused on high school students, staff, and parents while thinking about how to include our entire district community in healing and then strengthening cultural sustainability. The linked document MUSD Action Timeline Since 10.31.19 is both a running record of actions as well as plans for our work in the days and months ahead."

-Cheryl Jordan, Superintendent of MUSD

help get burnett 6th graders to science camp

We are raffling off a quilt to make money for Science Camp scholarships. The quilt was donated by Lynn Lafayette and Ardeen Mettee. Quilting was done by Dee Small.

Burnett Roses is made in colors of Burnett blue, ivory and red. It features roses on royal blue fabrics, and measures 75”x 75”. The quilt is on display in Burnett’s office. (See attached picture.)

The raffle will take place before Winter Break. You may purchase raffle tickets for $5.00 each or 7 tickets for $20. If you would like to purchase raffle tickets, please send a check to Burnett School (attention: Julie Wells). We will fill out the tickets for you and put them in the raffle jar.

The winner will be notified by phone by December 19th.
