Volunteers Needed
Volunteers Needed!

Parent volunteers are needed on Wednesday, November 29 to help with vision screening.  Screening will take place from approximately 8:00 to 1:30. Volunteers will be assisting screeners to keep the process running smoothly and efficiently.  This may include escorting students to and from classrooms, distributing forms to each student, and helping to supervise students while they wait to be screened.  If you are able to help, please leave a message for Karen Ward, School Nurse, at 612-668-3588, or

Vision Screening
Vision Screening Scheduled

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Your child will have their vision screened at school in the upcoming weeks.  While this screening is designed to identify issues with your child’s vision, it is not considered a full eye exam.  Parents/guardians will be notified if a child does not pass the screening test – at that time, your child should be seen by an eye care professional to further evaluate their vision.

There will be more details on the Barton Fall Fund Drive sent home with your student this week.


Memorial Celebration for Jaci Sullivan
Reminder: Memorial celebration for Jaci Sullivan set for Tue., Nov. 28

The extended Barton community is invited to come together in the DeLapp Commons on Tuesday, November 28, 6-8 p.m., to remember and celebrate our beloved Jaci Sullivan. She would love to know that we are supporting and caring for each other, while telling stories and sharing food. So please come with a dessert to share, and your favorite Jaci story. There will be a microphone for those who are ready to share their story out loud, and we will also have a basket if you prefer to leave your story written on paper — these stories will make their way into a scrapbook, which will eventually be given to Jaci’s family. We will also share with the community more about the plans for a beautiful, large-scale Calder-esque mobile that will be created and installed in the school in Jaci’s name. The evening will start at 6 pm, the memorial program will begin at 6:30, and we will linger and clean up 7:30-8 pm. Please share this with any students and families of Jaci’s who have moved on from Barton — this evening is for all of us.  Read more...
