John Burroughs Elementary School

In January 2022, a group of Burroughs students will begin their journey as they unearth the rich history of their school and the surrounding community.

Current Burroughs teacher and alum, Mr. Boyd, will guide the students in their research quest as they search local archives and museums, interview long-time area residents, explore their neighborhood, handle historical photographs and documents, and much more!

By the end of the school year, the students will have gathered enough information to produce a museum-quality exhibit that will remain permanently installed on school grounds that celebrates the school’s centennial anniversary as well as the generations of Burroughs families that have attended over time.
