From the Burlington Food Pantry
We are requesting donations of toothpaste and toothbrushes.  Donation boxes will be dropped off at the elementary schools for the lobby.  

PLEASE HELP CONTINUE THE TRADITION: Will you be a chaperone at the BHS Post Graduation (all-night) Party?  Its tradition for the parents of underclassmen to chaperone the party for our graduating seniors.  We are looking for men to help with the sumo wrestling on all 3 shifts - shift 1 (10 pm - midnight on Sunday June 8), shift 2 (midnight - 3 am on Mon June 9), shift 3 (3am - 5am on Mon June 9) We also have a few spots avail for either men or women at other activities for shift 3.  You don't need to have a child in the high school, any adult that does not have a senior at the party is welcome.  This is a great way to "pay it forward."  Help us this year and when your child graduates, the parents of underclassmen will be there for you!  To volunteer, or if you have any questions, please contact Michele Shields at or 781-270-5142.

BPD radKids Week
Your kids will be in a fun and very active program that stresses safety awareness through role-play, self-defense and other activities. Burlington Police D.A.R.E. will incorporate risk awareness skills (strangers, public safety etc.) with radKIDS, a program that offers defense against abduction. RadKIDS teaches all kinds of cool things, like what you can do to be safe from fires, or how to be safe when you're out shopping, even what to do if a strange dog scares you. The radKids portion of the class (defense against abduction) is a 15-hour class to be integrated with the D.A.R.E. safety awareness teachings.  Due to a generous grant from Lahey Clinic, classes will be free for all attending residents. Donations to the Burlington D.A.R.E. Program are appreciated. As per the radKIDS organization, each child thereafter will be able to re-attend the class on an unlimited basis for free.   The program is intended for children ages 8-12. The course will be held at the Memorial Elementary School gymnasium Mon. – Fri. (9am-12noon) July
14-28, July 21-25 and July 28-August 1. All 5 classes must be attended. Full time Burlington Police officers will teach the class! Registration forms will be made available at the Burlington Police Web Site: and may be dropped off at the Police Station. Limited space available! For questions, call Officers Keith Sheppard or Steve Cross at (781) 505-4919 or 781-505-4965.
