Summer Reading Challenge
All Fulton County students are challenged to read every day this summer, for at least 15 to 30 minutes. Parents and students are encouraged to visit the Find a Book, Georgia website and make a Summer Reading Pledge. You can also use the website to find book recommendations throughout the summer, all tailored to a student’s interests and Lexile score. (If your child’s Lexile score is not known, the site can estimate reading level based on answers to a few simple questions.)
Suggested summer reading goals for students based on grade levels are:

Personalized Learning Devices
At our recent 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 next fall! This is very exciting for Barnwell and we are looking forward to utilizing these new tools to challenge and engage our students.
The City of Johns Creek recently hosted several community meetings to engage the public on solutions for addressing road improvements along Barnwell Road. Click here for more information from Johns Creek on the proposed projects that will affect our community.
