Chet Burchett Elementary, Spring ISD's 17th elementary school, is located 1.8 miles north of the Treaschwig and Cypresswood intersection on the east side of the road. It is named after Chet Burchett, a former member of the Spring ISD Board of Trustees for nine years beginning in 1993. In addition to his years as a board member, Chet Burchett has contributed to the District by volunteering time and leadership to the first Project Prom program at Westfield High School and establishing a Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter at Westfield. He may be best known as the "Voice of the Mustangs" for the commentary he provided while serving for seven years as the announcer for Westfield football games. The Chet Burchett Elementary School opened in August 2005.  Mr. Burchett passed away in the spring of 2010 and is dearly missed by all of his bobcat family.

Home of the Bobcats!

Students and Staff of Burchett Elementary selected, in the Spring of 2005, the Bobcat as the mascot for their school. The students overwhelmingly voted for the BOBCAT!

Mr. Terry Bell, former SISD Director of Planning and Construction, donated this bobcat to our school. It is displayed proudly in our front office! Thank you, Mr. Bell.

Generally, bobcats measure 2 feet tall and weigh about 20 pounds. Larger than house cats, bobcats are light brown to reddish brown in color with spotted fur as a baby. Bobcats have very short tails. Their footprint shows no claws. Bobcats are curious and very shy. Their favorite place to live is in woods or grassy areas. They are a nocturnal animal (night animal). Bobcats have a keen sense of sight and hearing which aids in their hunting. They can sneak up on their prey easily because of the soft pads on their feet. It has been known that bobcats can run up to 30 miles per hour. Bobcats live to be ten or twelve years old.
