Barton Book Bazaar

Dear Barton Community,

The Barton Book Bazaar 2016 was a huge success!!! The numbers (and the smiles) tell the story. . .

  • 3, 641 books were donated
  • 735 students received a coupon for a free book (every student at Barton!)
  • 142 students volunteered to sort books, cut coupons, box books, carry books, run the till, organize the tables, count money, take coupons, re-organize the tables, run errands, make signs. . .
  • 28 parent volunteers gave of their time to organize books, carry books, move boxes, work the till, sort books, re-organize books, help students select a book, break down boxes, move more boxes. . .
  • $816.50 was raised and will go directly into purchasing more books for 735 students to enjoy in the Barton Media Center!  A wonderful circle supporting the love of reading for our Barton children!
  • Uncountable smiles. 

This event could not have happened without all of the volunteers.  Deep appreciation to each and every one of the 170 parent and student volunteers that rallied behind this community effort.  And special thanks to these specific people who were deeply involved:  Sheila Eldred, Sara Stenzel, Alexandra Richardson, Katrina Belding, the students of rooms 8, 202, 206, 209 and 218, Tom Hockenberry, Rick Sandin, Luis Angel Perez, Carnell Day, Barb Stoopes and our supportive administration, Jonas and Holly.  

Happy reading, Barton community!
