A Message from Mr. Jankowski

The Ethel Burke staff and I wish to welcome you to an exciting new school year!

Ethel M. Burke Elementary School is a student-centered neighborhood school serving students from the Bellmawr School District in grades Kindergarten through Fourth grade. The success of our school continues to be driven by our vision: The Ethel Burke school environment is one in which all learners grow, succeed, and flourish. We value and accommodate diversity. We support our learners because they are capable, and we support them in every way possible.

Ethel M. Burke School staff has always strived to educate our students with the hope that they will lead satisfying and productive lives both now and in the future.  We continue our ongoing efforts to recognize our students as individuals and to help them develop a feeling of self-worth.  Our teachers inspire and encourage our students to develop a true love of learning!

At Ethel Burke School we view the learning process as a collaborative effort with our families. We embrace communication between staff and the community as we work to create the best learning opportunities for all children.  We believe that by working together as a team, we will continue to build upon a solid foundation to provide many opportunities for success for our children.

Please note: Arrival procedures have changed slightly for this year. Doors will open at 8:35 a.m. to accommodate student arrival.  Students must wear face coverings when entering the building while socially distancing 6 feet apart following posted signage and sidewalk decals.  Students will enter by grade level as follows:

  • Kindergarten will enter through Entrance #3
  • First & Second Grade will enter through Entrance #4
  • Third & Fourth Grade will enter through Entrance #2

Please note that all students will exit through the same door used during arrival.

Best wishes for a successful, and safe, school year! Please feel free to contact us in the Main Office with any questions or concerns that you may have throughout the year.
