Boohoo/Woohoo Breakfast (8/8)
All new Pre-K and Kindergarten parents are invited on the first day of school to connect with other parents, meet some of the Administration Staff, and PTA at the Boohoo/ Woohoo Breakfast (7:40 AM in the cafeteria). Whether you are having a hard time letting your little one go, or whether you are jumping for joy that school has started, the breakfast will be a great place to connect with other parents of kids the same age.
Our PTA is providing all families with the option of electronically OPTING-OUT of the school directory and yearbook. You ONLY need to take action if you want to opt-out. If you would like your child to be included in the yearbook and the directory, then no action is required.
If you DO NOT want your family's information to be included in the PTA Directory and/or you DO NOT want your child/children's image and name to appear in the yearbook, please click on this OPT-OUT link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KBHQ9GG.
Personalized Learning Devices
At our last School Governance Council meeting, our SGC approved our recommendation for the Dell Lattitude 11 laptop. Our Personalized Learning team, comprised of teachers from each grade level and support staff, compared each of the four available devices (click here for Device Q&A) to see which best supported our instructional model (click here to see Barnwell's Instructional Model) and recommended the laptop as the best available option.
As part of our current SPLOST and Fulton County's Personalized Learning initiative, we will be receiving 10 of these devices for every 30 students enrolled. We expect to receive about 250 devices to arrive before the end of September! This is very exciting for Barnwell and we are looking forward to utilizing these new tools to challenge and engage our students.
