    On Wednesday, March 30th at 11 am, our second grade students along with the second graders from Carver Lyon Elementary school  participated in the third and final  Virtual Read Aloud with the Columbia Chapter of the Links incorporated, an organization whose motto is Linked in Friendship, Connected in Service.  The students were presented with a workbook designed to help younger readers become better readers during the first virtual read and  continued using these workbooks during the second and third virtual read.  We appreciate this initiative by the Columbia Links and their efforts to help our students continue to grow.

    Dr. Kimberly Johnson - Author  

    On April 20, 2022, Dr. Kimberly Johnson visited Burton Pack Elementary with an  engaging presentation for our kindergarten, first, and third graders.  Dr. Johnson is a nationally known children's author.  Her most recent work, No Fear For Freedom: The story of Friendship 9, is based on a sit-in by 9 African American men at a segregated lunch counter in Rock Hill, SC in 1961, and  the efforts to clear their names following their arrest.    https://www.simplycreativeworks.com/

    Principal's Message to the Burton Pack Families and Communities            

    Moving forward (Rejuvenation)

    One of  my favorite quotes from John F. Kennedy, "Change is the law of life.  And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future." Change is important in education, as in all areas.  This year Burton-Pack will have new leadership with new ideas and goals to start the 2022-2023 academic school year.  Please join the new team  of collaboration and goal setting for the coming year.

    I wanted to thank you for allowing me to have the "time of my life" with your beautiful, funny, and energetic students.  We have learned so much together and I will miss them dearly.  I wish only the best for them as they continue to grow into bright scholars.

    I have had the tremendous honor of working in Richland One for the past 34 years.  During this time, I have had the honor to serve as teacher, assistant principal, principal, mentor, and the greatest accomplishment that one can receive in education is being recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School principal.  I have worked with amazing educators and leaders within the district and Burton -Pack.  As I am changing careers, I will continue to be an advocate for students, teachers, and parents.  

    Thanks to everyone for the support, guidance, and encouragement you have provided Burton-Pack.  I will miss everyone and encourage you to push our students to be the best every day.


     I am Jacquitta H. Graham.  I was born and reared in the small town of Cordova, South Carolina.  I am the second child born to Monnie Jr. and Linda Graham. I  currently I reside in West Columbia, SC with my two children, Josiah(10) and Zoey (2). I have been in education for 8 years. This is my third year here at Burton Pack Elementary, and I have enjoyed each and every moment. My greatest accomplishment literally happens each and every day.  My students are enthusiastic about learning, and I'm even more enthusiastic to see them soaking up all the knowledge I have to give.  I am also humbled by the experience of being chosen for the 2021 - 2022 Teacher of the Year for Burton Pack Elementary, and I will continue to inspire, care for and most importantly educate the students that I serve.
