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.
