Sensory Garden

Our Barnwell Foundation Sensory Garden is taking shape! After being "home" to several portable classrooms for the last 28 years 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 we will be selling those beginning December 8th. Phase II of our side rennovation project , next year, will be to replace the adjacent playground!

Kindness Matters

We received this "Thank You" from our friends at Kate Bell Elementary after receiving our donations to help them get back on their feet after Hurricane Harvey. We're proud to be able to help make a difference for our fellow students.

Fulton's TOTY is Barnwell's Ms. Kerley!IMG_1601.JPG

Barnwell's own Allison Kerley is Fulton County's 2017 Teacher of the Year! We have 8,000 teachers in Fulton County working in 105 schools – for our own Ms. Kerley to win this recognition is incredible! This is an amazing accomplishment for her and our Barnwell family – her success is our success and I'm proud she's part of our school family!

William Yeat's famously said, "Education is not the filling of a bucket, but the lighting of a fire". That's what Ms. Kerley does each day for her students – she ignites their curiosity and passion, helping them find their purpose and own their learning. Dr. Rose, our Superintendent, asked one of her students during the surprise announcement what one thing she likes best about Ms. Kerley, and the student responded "There's not one thing, it's everything, that makes her great!".

Thank you Allison for leading the way for us and all of Fulton County – we're proud of you! Want to hear more? Click here for Allison's amazing Legacy of Excellence presentation.


Volunteer Requirements

Do you want to be a mystery reader? Would you like to help out in your child's classroom? We welcome all parents to come volunteer and be a part of your child's school experience at Barnwell. Per Fulton County policy, ALL parents that want to volunteer MUST complete the mandatory training or they will not be allowed to volunteer in classrooms! 

Lately, we have had to turn many parents away as they haven't completed this training this year - which is heartbreaking for everyone! Please don't let this happen to you - visit the FCS site directly to complete the required informational training at least 72 hours prior to volunteering:
