Passion and extensive knowledge of classical music make students a "dream team," says choral director.
Choral director Martha Schmidt thought she saw a dream team of three Burnsville High School students to enter into the Minnesota Listening Contest. She was right. The team of Kristina Butler, Savannah Lim and Chris Neiner recently won first place for the region and will now head to state competition Feb. 1. "We were thrilled," Schmidt said in a District 191 news release. "There are nine regions throughout the state and most of them brought nine to 15 teams (of three each). Our particular region had 24 teams and we won handily by earning 87 out of 100 points while the 2nd place winner got 72."

While reviewing Burnsville High's newest course offerings, Principal Dave Helke outlined a plan to consolidate registration and transcripts for grades 9 through 12.
In deference to the vast majority of colleges and universities, Burnsville High's distinctive 10 through 12 registration and transcript system will undergo a gradual overhaul, Principal Dave Helke told the board. Ninth graders will continue to attend the district's junior highs, rather than the main high school campus, but their registration guide will be included in the high school's. Eventually, Helke hopes to develop a 9 through 12 GPA and transcript system as well. It is thought that the change will help simplify the college application process (most post-secondary institutions ask for a 9 through 12 transcript), and ideally, get students to plan for their post-secondary career earlier. "We're doing this to allow students and families …
