2018-19 School Year

Our Open House is on Friday, August 3rd from 8:30 - 11:30 where students and parents can meet their teacher, visit their new classroom, join our amazing PTA, sign-up for our various after school activities and get bus/car rider information. Parking is limited, please carpool when possible and come whenever best meets your schedule (earlier is not always better for parking). 

Students wanting to drop off school supplies are welcome to do so (click 2018-2019 Supply List.pdf for our suggested supply list). Our Parent-Teacher Nights are on 8/22 (PK - 2nd grade) and 8/23 (3rd - 5th grade) from 6:30 - 7:30 each night. 

In late July bus times/locations should be available on our district transportation website (FCS Transportation).  Some of these times have been adjusted to accomodate a later pick-up each morning. Our morning car pool times have likewise been adjusted to ensure our staff is in classrooms for our morning meetings. 

Beginning the 2nd week of school, our morning car pool will end at 7:35 each morning - please plan accordingly to ensure your child arrives and is in his/her classroom before 7:40 each morning. ​​

Barnwell ES, Autrey Mill MS and Johns Creek HS all have a modified calendar next year with two additional days for students to be off (teachers will be working) - October 4th and February 19th. Visit 2018-2019 Barnwell Calendar.pdf for our complete 2018-2019 calendar. 

All parents that want to volunteer at Barnwell will need to complete the Fulton County 2018-19 Volunteer Registration, available here: 2018 Volunteer Registration​. ​It takes 5-10 minutes to complete this process and 24-48 hours for your registration to be active in our system.

SHE DID IT! Georgia's Teacher of the Year! 

As a proud principal I share with you some historic news. On Saturday, May 19th, the Georgia Department of Education announced the 20​19 Georgia Teacher of the Year, and for the first time ever it was awarded to a Fulton County teacher, Barnwell's very own Allison Kerley Townsend!

With 159 counties in Georgia, employing over 114,000 teachers, for Allison to be named the Georgia Teacher of the Year is an incredible accomplishment! She is without a doubt an amazing teacher and colleague, as she inspires, challenges, and loves her children and teammates, helping bring out the best in each and every one of us. However, Mrs. Townsend will also be the first to tell you that she didn't win this award alone – that her success is only possible because of the help, encouragement and inspiration of her school family.

We had a school-wide celebration during the last week of school with our Superintendent, Dr. Rose, Area Superintendent, Cliff Jones, School Board Members, our students and staff.

​​Sensory Garden

Our Barnwell Foundation Sensory Garden is taking shape! After being "home" to several portable classrooms from 1988 through 2017 the front left side of our school is now starting to take shape. Each "wing" of the Sensory Garden will provide different plants and structures to help students experience the different senses.

If you'd like to purchase a brick to help us finish our Sensory Garden (outdoor musical instruments, container pots and perennials) download the engraved brick form here:  www.barnwellfoundation.org/goals/sensory-garden/buy-an-engraved-brick/.

Phase II of our side rennovation project  (next year) will be to replace the adjacent playground!
