Burton Elementary School has taken the initiative and love for their school district to a new level with the continuation of The Badger Times, a student-created newspaper developed by 6th grade students. Overseen by Mrs. Tricia Lunardi and Mrs. Karena McCandless, the co-taught project has been diligently underway for the last few months. Included within the publication is a variety of student-interest stories and home-taken pictures and images. One particular front-page story entitled "Berkshire Badgers Have Grit" outlines how this edition came to fruition, and the COVID-19 and school closure’s impact on the total effort. Due to the determination of our student staff to persevere--even though it meant writing and layout and all the nuts-and-bolts of producing a publication of this magnitude, on top of their regular assignments during the first week of distance learning. Congratulations to these 6th Language Arts students and their advisors for persevering and developing a first-rate, student-led school newspaper, with some grit and District pride! Go Badgers!
