Message From Our Principal

August 30, 2022

Dear Burns Avenue Students and Families,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of the Burns Avenue Elementary School.  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such persevering students, an extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community.  I feel very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to be part of the Burns Avenue Family and I am excited and eager to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by the Burns Avenue Elementary School by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners.  We will focus on the whole child by strengthening character education initiatives, collecting informal and formal data to strengthen academics, focus on high high learning targets, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase all of our students' achievement.

All of us at the Burns Avenue Elementary School are eager and excited to begin what promises to be a fantastic school year!  This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections.  As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors is excited to be here!  This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.  Most importantly, I bring a belief that students are at the center of all school-related decisions.  I am excited to unite my experience, my openness to learn, and my child-centered approach to supporting our students.  Because the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, I encourage you to become involved in every way possible.  I look forward to meeting you soon!


Jason Chin
Principal of Burns Avenue Elementary School
