Dear Barnard Families,
It is my honor and pleasure to welcome you back to another exciting school year at Barnard Elementary School! I look forward to acquainting our new families or re-acquainting our current families to school. Barnard is a great place to learn and to work for several reasons: student focus and support, school organization and culture, challenging standards and curriculum, active teaching and learning, integration of technology, strong leadership, and partnerships with families and the community. As an educational team, we are dedicated to academic excellence and holding high expectations to ensure that each and every student will be successful learners. We are committed to creating a safe and positive learning environment where staff and students promote and model responsible, respectful behavior in order to provide each student the most optimal learning opportunities.
Barnard Elementary has a supportive Parent Teacher Organization. This organization supports our school through providing enrichment opportunities for students such as assemblies, educational materials, and field trips; hosting family and community events; as well as other volunteer opportunities. There are many events planned for this school year. If you are looking for ways to meet other parents and serve our community, I encourage you to get involved with this dynamic team!
I am truly excited to begin another year with the Barnard families and students. Please remember, I honor our time together and thank you for sharing your precious children with us each and every day!
