Dear Families,

The Mabelle M. Burrell School is one of three neighborhood schools in Foxborough. Burrell serves over 300 children from pre-kindergarten through fourth grade. The building provides a safe, clean, attractive environment which includes a full cafeteria, library, auditorium, gymnasium and playgrounds. Each student has access to computers and the internet directly in the classroom and in the mini-lab. We offer on- site care before and after school to our K-4 children of working parents.

Burrell has a strong curricular program with high standards for academic as well as social performance. In addition to language arts, social studies, math and science, children regularly have classes in Spanish, wellness, music and visual arts. Much of the instruction is interdisciplinary to help children integrate learning.

Our talented, experienced teaching staff is committed to providing Foxborough's children with an excellent education. They create a stimulating and nurturing learning environment that respects and accommodates each child’s individual learning style. In keeping with our district-wide objectives, we strive to keep classes at a reasonable size and heterogeneously grouped. Teaching Assistants, Reading & Math Specialists, Special Educators, Counselors, Occupational Therapists and Speech Therapists work directly with classroom teachers to help meet the range of learning needs for all students.

Parents play a vital role in the life of the school. Thanks to the tremendous ongoing support of our PTO, we have been able to upgrade playgrounds, provide field trips and fund cultural programs to enhance the curriculum. In addition, the PTO organizes family events such as the End-of-Year Picnic and the Family Dance.

We proudly participate in a variety of community interactions including the Council on Aging Volunteer Program and musical visits from the Serenading Seniors. Local police officers and firefighters teach special lessons on health and safety issues. In addition, the children contribute to the town of Foxborough through events that support the Discretionary Fund and other charitable organizations.

We pride ourselves with providing rich educational opportunities that begin the district's mission to educate motivated, self-sufficient learners who will be creative problem solvers, able to understand and contribute to a complex society. We take pride in the work and learning of Burrell School and thank all who continue to support our goals and efforts on behalf of the wonderful young children whom we serve. We hope that the details and procedures contained in this handbook are clear and helpful to everyone.
