Thank you to all of the students and parents who worked on our lovely Barton tree in the main hallway! It’s beautiful and really helps welcome guests into Barton. Special thank you to Gabriel Bodkin and Kate Guin for designing and organizing the installation!

Dear Barton families,

I am writing to make you aware of a staff change in your child’s classroom. Norah Antil has departed from Clara Barton School.  We thank her for her time at Barton Open School.

We are in the process of seeking a long-term substitute to fill this teacher’s position through the end of the school year. I want to assure you that we will continue to maintain a high standard of teaching and learning with as little disruption to routines as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call our school office at 612.668.3580.


Diane Bagley, Assistant Principal
