From the Principal

  • Welcome to Ida Burns Elementary School.  I am honored to be the principal of such an amazing school with outstanding staff, students, and parents who all have one goal in mind, and that is to educate our students to the best of our abilities. We are here to create legacies that will last a lifetime. 

    You will find our staff is dedicated, hardworking, and child-focused.  We care about every student and are committed to our District's Mission:  “Every child, every day, whatever it takes.”  Our staff provide many learning opportunities to reach our students however they need it. They support your child in all areas of life.  

    Our students are ready and eager to learn each and every day.  They are diligent in their studies and thrive in an environment of safety, respect, and high expectations.  Students are kind and respectful to each other. At Ida Burns, we believe in building each other up. We are committed to being a family and helping each other. 

    An important component in the legacy of success at Ida Burns is the community.  I believe in a partnership and shared dedication and responsibility by students, family, school, and community.  Together we overcome challenges and celebrate accomplishments.

    We are so glad you are a part of the Ida Burns family.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments or concerns: 501-450-4825;
