Playoff Game -- 10/14
Tuesday, October 07, 2014 6:50 PM

After a slow start we had a nice little comeback during today's game, but still ultimately lost 32-16.  This was our last regular season game, and we will be playing a playoff game next week. 

The game will be at 3:30 on Tuesday the 14th at Lincoln Field in North Minneapolis.  We will also have a practice that Monday from 2-4 at Lyndale Farmstead.  The rest of this week both please encourage your child to get outside and practice their skills. 

This Week -- 10/6/14
Monday, October 06, 2014 6:00 AM

Hi everybody, sorry for the late notice, but here is the schedule for this upcoming week.  We are going to have a practice tomorrow at Lyndale-Farmstead from 2-4. On Tuesday we have our last regular season game, it's at Franklin Field at 3:30.  As always we'll have a bus take us to the field and back to Barton for the game.  

We will be having at least one playoff game, but I don't know when that will be.  I'm guessing next week, but it's possible it will be at the end of this week.  I will keep you posted when I get the info.  

That's all for now, please call/text/email if you have any questions.

Practice cancelled -- 10/1/14
Wednesday, October 01, 2014 12:20 PM

Hello Barton families.  With all the rain we got last night and this morning we are going to cancel today's practice.  The field conditions would be a little unsafe, and yesterday's game was hard enough on the kids without exposing them to the slick and cold conditions today.  The teachers are letting the kids know there is no practice and they should get home as they normally would.

I heard from some of the kids and parents that the other team engaged in aggressive taunting yesterday, and I informed Holly who then informed the middle school athletic director Dave Wicker.  I personally didn't hear some of the things that were reported, but hurtful and hateful language cannot be tolerated, so if your child was exposed to anything please encourage them to tell me so I can inform the proper parties.  Anyway, overall I think yesterday's game was a tremendous success, and we're starting to understand what we can do together as a team.  I hope to see some of you for our game tomorrow against at Franklin Field. 

Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks again for adapting to sudden changes in the schedule.

Game today!

Hello everybody!  Just wanted to remind you all that we have a game today against Folwell at Franklin Field in north minneapolis at 3:30.  We will have a bus take us to the game after school, and return us to Barton around 5.  If you cannot pick up your child at Barton contact me or the school ASAP so we can arrange a ride home.  If we have not gotten an updated physical for your child he will not be allowed to play, or ride the bus.  

Call/text/email me with any questions, or talk to Holly or Brittany at Barton.  

Hope to see some of you at the field today!
