  • As a student of Burns Jr. High in 1987, the first year it opened, I have nothing but fond memories. Not only were the teachers wonderful, (School Newspaper- which I illustrated!!) but the school was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! I sincerely hope that my three children will have the opportunity to go to Burns also. I would like to ask everyone who reads this, if you know where I can obtain copies of those school papers that I illustrated please contact me. Thank you.
