About Barnard
Barnard Elementary is one of 12 elementary schools in the Troy School District. Located on Forge Drive, between the boundaries of Big Beaver and Wattles, and John R and Dequindre, Barnard serves 500+ students. Our Barnard students, once promoted from 5th grade, attend Baker Middle School and then move on to Athens High School.
 
Whether you are a returning family, or you are new to Barnard, we are excited to meet the needs of your child and work with them to realize their potential. The Barnard staff sets high expectations for all of our students. We look at each child as a unique individual and
differentiate our instruction where necessary. Barnard elementary teachers are masterful and dedicated to their craft. Their devotion and caring atmosphere here in each classroom fosters a warm environment for children to be enriched with the wonders of learning. We celebrate our students’ backgrounds, achievements and interests.
 
Your partnership with the school is vital to the continued growth and success of your child.
We strongly encourage frequent communication and working closely with our staff.
 
We communicate via our monthly Barnard Broadcaster Newsletter,
our progress reports and report cards, teacher weekly classroom letters and by email and phone calls. We host Parent Teacher Conferences in November, but welcome meeting with you whenever the need arises.
 
Please know we are accessible to you, from our principal, Melanie Morey, to our secretaries, Mrs. Matthes and Mrs. Patru, to all of our teachers and staff. Do not hesitate to contact us.
 
We are proud of our North Central Accreditation, our Evergreen
School Status (we think “green”), the direction and skills of our Professional Learning Community, our state MEAP scores, our ongoing technology for students and the many and varied programs we offer
students.
 
We all look forward to working with your family and, in particular, your child!
 
Our Mission Statement: Each person, each day, learning and caring in every way.
