Personalized Learning at Barnwell

The concept of personalized learning means utilizing various strategies and having flexible pacing of instruction to help each child learn. Students have ownership of their learning and are able to demonstrate mastery in multiple ways. Our focus this year is on creating independence in our students, utilizing technology and choice activities to allow teachers to meet with students in small groups, providing direct, personalized instruction for each child. We are focusing on the concepts of Varied Strategies, Co-Planning Learning, and Just-in-Time Instruction (click here for our Instructional Model).

Have questions? Please ask! Start with your child's teacher or reach out directly to our Personalized Learning Coach, Daniel Hodge at hodgedv@fultonschools.org. We are excited about this new direction and appreciate your input and support as we move from a traditional approach (where the teacher is the center of learning) to a student-centered approach (where the student is the center of learning). Visit here to see what our personalized learning path looks like!

Over the next few months, we will be inviting parents to come in and see what student-centered learning looks like in some of our classrooms. Look for more information about this exciting opportunity beginning in November.

Modified School Calendar - No School 3/9/17 for all JC Cluster Schools

We have a modified school calendar this year as we have 3 days of professional learning specific for our staff embedded throughout the school year. The Johns Creek Cluster (including Barnwell, Autrey and JC) do not have school on 10/7/16 and 3/9/17. Visit here for our complete 2016-2017 amended calendar.

Our YMCA Primetime program is available on these days if you need childcare. Visit here for details.

Digital Citizenship Certification

Barnwell is a Common Sense Certified School! This certification recognizes our efforts in teaching digital literacy and citizenship to our students from Common Sense Education, part of a national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in a world of media and technology.

We are one of the more than 100,000 schools across the country that use Common Sense Education's groundbreaking education resources. As a result, our students are better equipped to navigate the digital world and use devices for learning.

Lunch Visits/Birthday Celebrations

Any parent wanting to celebrate their child's birthday with the class is welcome to come to the cafeteria to purchase a frozen treat or cookies from our cafeteria and hand out to the class during lunch. 

Per Fulton County policy, no outside food of any kind is permitted for distribution to students in classrooms or the cafeteria (while you are welcome to provide your own child with any treat to celebrate a special occasion, no store-bought or homemade cupcakes, cookie cakes, etc. are allowed for class distribution). Parents wanting to celebrate with their child must order in advance (see flyer included in Open House papers for details or click on the Flyer/Order Form) and hand out during lunch.

Please note that teachers/school staff will not be handing out birthday treats in the cafeteria or classroom.
