Testing THIS WEEK Minimum Days: April 23, 24, 25
*District buses will be in service

Attention all 7th grade students interested in attending Washington DC/NYC trip next year.  We will be having an informational meeting at Hoover Middle School on Wednesday, April 30th at 5:30pm in the library


Beginning with the 2013-2014 school year, California is moving to the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). These computer-based tests replace the STAR program. CAASPP is aligned to the Common Core State Standards for English and math, which California adopted in 2010 to describe what knowledge and skills students need to be well prepared for college and careers, no matter where they come from or where they live.

This year, CAASPP is being field tested to determine how well individual questions allow students to demonstrate what they know and still need to learn.

Who will take the test?
All students in grades 3-8 and in grade 11.

Burnett will be testing on April 23, 24, and 25, 2014.  Which will be minimum Days.

Will parents receive test results?
No. Because this is a field test to determine how effective CAASPP is, schools, districts, and students/families will not receive scores.
Visit for complete testing information and dates.

The 2014 Parent Survey was sent home with students. Please take 5-10 minutes to complete this survey for your youngest student.

You can take the survey on paper and return it by mail using the attached postage-paid envelope.

You can also take the survey online by entering the numeric code found in the bottom right corner of the survey. Go to and enter the code to sign in.

Thank you for your help!




Dear Burnett Community,

We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit The Burnett Middle School website. On behalf of the staff, I would like to welcome you to the home of the mighty bears.  As an International Baccalaureate Middle Year Program School, we are committed to producing students who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
Students at Burnett are expected to take pride in their academics, be ready to problem solve, be able to communicate their ideas and ultimately, do their best each and every day. Due to our smaller school size, Burnett students have an excellent opportunity to take advantage of our technology and arts (including our award winning speech and debate) programs as well as become involved in school activities and have a meaningful middle school experience.
I encourage you to become involved with your child’s studies and contact the school if you have any questions throughout the year. Only with a strong parent partnership can we assist your student in obtaining a high quality education and ensure your student has the best educational experience possible.

Go Bears!!!


Lisa Aguerria Lewis, Principal
