The 22nd Annual Calamus Court Challenge Youth Basketball Tournament has been scheduled for March 22-23, 2014 in Burwell, Nebraska. The challenge features ten divisions including boys and girls divisions for 4th through 8th grades. The entry fee is $60 per team.
Each team will play a minimum of two games. Some games may be scheduled for Friday. Approval will be obtained from team coaches prior to scheduling Friday games.
All participants shall furnish their own liability insurance that will hold harmless the Burwell Schools, Burwell Youth Boosters, staff and volunteers from all claims of injury that may be sustained while involved in the tournament.
Please note a few changes to this year's tournament:
A. The entry deadline for this year’s tournament is March 1st. This deadline will allow brackets to be drawn and sent back to coaches.
B. Only athletes that are 3rd grade and older will be allowed to play in the tournament. This is to ensure the safety of our athletes.
C. Depending on the number of entries, grade level brackets may be combined. This will be determined as the entry forms are received.
D. Coaches, when filling out your entry form for Calamus Court 2014, please include your team’s roster with players and their #s if possible.
We like to make up the programs when we make the brackets, and having all of your team info helps us set everything up correctly.
We also must have your payment with your entry form.
Also, if you are no longer coaching a team, could you pass the entry form along to the new coach?
Thanks again, we’re looking forward to seeing you and your team at Calamus Court 2014, March 22nd–23rd

Pre-Registration for 2014-2015
Student pre-registration for classes next year will begin the week of February 17th.
The purpose of pre-registration is to collect information of what classes students need to take to meet graduation requirements, what classes students need to take for their future careers/college, and what students want to take, and then build a schedule that accommodates student’s needs.
The information provided in the pre-registration process will be valuable in building the upcoming class schedule, so it is important to take time when pre-registering and do not be afraid to ask questions.
Below are the scheduled times for pre-registration:
Monday, February 17 – Mrs. Helberg’s Room
Block 2 – Juniors (next year’s seniors)
Wednesday, February 19 – Mrs. Helberg’s Room
Block 1 – 8th graders (next year’s freshman)
Wednesday, February 19 – Ms. Cain’s Room
Block 2 – 9th graders (next year’s sophomores)
Thursday, February 20 – Mrs. Smith’s Room
Block 2 – 10th graders (next year’s juniors)
Signed Pre-Registration request sheets are due to Miss Tetschner by Friday, March 7th.
NOTE: If pre-registration request sheets are not turned in, a student’s schedule will be created for them.
All schools in the state of Nebraska are required to participate in a continuous school improvement process. In order for a school to remain accredited with the State of Nebraska, we are required to host an external team which will come into our school and look for things we do well and help us in areas where we can improve. We are planning our next external visit in the fall of 2014.
To help us get ready for the external visit next fall, we will be required to survey parents, students and teachers to get a pulse on their perception of how our school is functioning. This information will be helpful and it will provide us with things we can do to improve the school. The Parent Surveys are going to be administered in conjunction with parent-teacher conferences. The surveys will be online and the information will be compiled with the use of technology. If you have students at more than one school, we would like you to take the survey at both schools your children attend. The survey will take 5-10 minutes. Below is the schedule of the Parent Survey.
The survey link will also be available by accessing the District's website at www.burwellpublicschools.org
February 11, 2014-High School Gymnasium- 3:00 to 7:30 p.m.
February 19, 2014-Elementary Lower Lab & District 70 Laptops-3:30-7:30 p.m.
