John Burroughs Elementary School

In January 2022, a group of Burroughs students began their journey as they unearthed the rich history of their school and the surrounding community. With additional members in their club, they are continuing their work during the 2022-2023 school year!

Current Burroughs teacher and alum, Mr. Boyd, is guiding 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!

At the end of the program, 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.
