There’s lots more on the Barton Website about all-school stuff, and I probably forgot something, but whew!  It’s all good, but it’s a busy time!

Core-Sampling Cupcakes

Thanks to Kristi Smith Knutson who stayed up late to make rainbow-layered, allergy free cupcakes so that we could find out how geologists find out what is UNDER the earth without tearing up too much land!  Plus- hello!  Cupcakes! They were yummy.

City Tour

Thanks to Jerri Clark Wagner who arranged a quick city hall tour, to Mark Wagner, who arranged our lunch venue, and to Steve Katkov, who arranged our “top of the skyscraper” view of the city.  Please have your kids pack a lunch and water bottle, or let me know if you will need a school lunch that day.  Wear your BARTON SHIRT!  It’s going to be a wonderful day.

If you volunteered to chaperone, you are hired!  There is no limit to the number of adults we can take on the trip, but if we get more than 12 for both classes, some adults will need to drive along behind the bus!

Camp Volunteers

We especially need shoppers- especially people with Costco memberships.  If this is you, please let us know asap!  We will give detailed lists and directions. 

Thanks- Kristin
