This week, I hope you plan to take part in the Barton Family Roller Skating event, which is Thursday, February 7 from 6 to 8 PM at the Roller Garden in St. Louis Park. Come have fun with your family, meet new friends and visit with old friend at this community-building event.

Next week, I encourage parents to come to our first of three scheduled "Coffee with the Principal" events at Barton. On Monday, February 11 from 7:45 - 8:45 AM, parents can come to this informal gathering to ask questions and have dialogue about items of interest regarding Barton and open education. This open dialogue coincides with National African American Family Involvement Day, a day honored by Minneapolis Public Schools and many organizations around the country.

We encourage all families to come that morning to engage in our event, where we will welcome discussion about ways in which we can be intentional and effective in involving our community in the development of each our children as socially conscious, life–long learners. I look forward to seeing many of you, and sharing our work and vision for the future together.
