We're excited to announce the formation of a brand new Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) which will alleviate some of the duties from the Site Council as well as expand the parent involvement in all things Barton. It's best we all stay as informed as possible, especially now, and we want to help you do that!

If you'd like to learn more about either the new PTO and/or the existing Site Council, please sign up at this link. We look forward to connecting with all of you!

Please share this with anyone in the Barton community!
