Dear Barton community,

I wanted to remind you about some of the important events that we have coming up in the next few weeks.

We will have a number of opportunities for our students to demonstrate their hard work and creativity through portfolios, exhibits, and concerts.  On our school calendar, you will see that following our Memorial Day break, our middles and uppers choirs will be performing concerts from 6:00-7:00 PM and 7:30-8:30 PM, respectively.  Our kindergarten classes will also host portfolio sharing next Wednesday and Thursday from 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM. See our calendar for more details.  Our Uppers students are also busy this week finalizing their work for their exhibition on June 3rd.

Also, with spring finally here and the Barton Plant Sale having come to a successful conclusion, we will be honoring one of our most influential organizers and champions of our Barton gardens.  This upcoming Tuesday, May 2/26, we will be hosting a memorial for Felicity in the DeLapp Commons. On behalf of the Barton community, I would like to invite you to attend this Native Garden Dedication. For more information, please see this article.

We are also quickly approaching our Lake Day celebration!  Students should have brought their permission slips home last Wednesday, and we have a link to the permission at the bottom of this email.  For all activities to go smoothly, we are requesting parent involvement in games and activities.  If you are interested in working with us to make this a success and you haven't heard from your child's homeroom teacher, please reach out to him or her to express your interest.  You can also use this google doc link to sign up to work specific locations from 11 AM-12:45 PM.
