Hey Barton Families,
We are a Box Tops School! The kids in Room 209 count the Box Tops that earn money for Barton School. In the last 3 years, we have earned over $3000! Clip them and send them to school. Collection areas are by door #2, outside the Media Center, or just bring them right up to Room 209. Our fall submission date is November 3. Thank you for your support.
Please fill out a form so we can connect you where you'd like to get involved at Barton. http://barton.mpls.k12.mn.us/volunteer_form_2
You are needed! You are appreciated!

High School Request Timeline:
The Leadership Council allocated additional funds last week to help address the large class sizes in our kindergarten and 5-6 grade levels. The Barton Foundation funds are supplementing some additional funding that the school has received from the District for staffing. These funds will help add staff to classrooms, provide bilingual support and recess coverage.
