Get Involved

The Burch Creek Elementary School Community Council is a group of parents, teachers, and administrators who oversee the Utah Trust Land money that is given to schools each year.  (Utah laws require the establishment of a permanent school fund. All net proceeds of the trust lands are deposited in the fund. Like an endowment, the principal is never spent; only the interest and dividends are distributed to support public schools. The capital gains are reinvested to grow the fund and its impact on student.) 

This year the Burch Creek Community Council is:

     Richard Proffer- Principal

     Nicole McGarry- Council Chair

     Seth Robinson- Vice Chair

     Melanie Wilhelmsen-Council Secretary

     Amy Rich- Parent

     Jessica Volpe- Teacher

The Trust Land money should be spent on literacy (reading) and numeracy (math).  If you have ideas about how you would like to see the money spent, please feel free to talk to one of the above-named members. 

Also, our meetings are open to the public, please see the schedule for more information.  Thanks for your interest in the Community Council.
