Burros Bits

As Burroughs is entering November, there is so much planned and so many activities that have already happened. On Oct. 1 Burrough allowed students to take the ASVAB, a test that assesses the skills of students in regard to the military.

The PSAT, also held last week, prepares students for the SAT and gives them a way to see where they are academically.

It was not all testing though. “A Night of a Thousand Stars” took place as well — a talent show that provides students a way to demonstrate their creative talents and abilities. Many students in clubs or extracurricular activities also participated in the annual Relay For Life as a way to help out those who have been affected by or are fighting cancer.

B Mountain painting, a senior tradition at Burroughs, happened over the weekend when the Class of 2018 painted a giant 18 on top of the mountain.

Students have also been working hard in preparation for Homecoming.

For the past couple of weeks, each class has been working on floats to represent the theme of this year’s Homecoming, “Hollywood Nights.” Our spirit days this week consisted of Scary vs. Fairy in which we held a dodgeball tournament; Class Colors, the day of the powderpuff game; Decades Day; and Blackout Day, which is the day of the Homecoming rally put on by the cheerleaders.

This Friday night we will have our CIF playoff game against the Rubidoux Falcons. The Burroughs school year has been going phenomenally, and I’m excited to continue sharing it with you.
