Dear families,

Please read for a number of parent/community events of interest that will take place over the last two weeks of January:

The Uppers will have their first semester Exhibition/Portfolio Sharing Night on Tuesday, January 21st from 5:30 – 7:30 PM. Families of 7th and eighth graders will receive additional information about Exhibition Night from Uppers teachers. Please plan to attend this important event. We hope that EVERY Uppers parent and guardian can attend.

Our “Coffee with the Principal” series has been well attended in previous months. On January 22nd, from 7:30 – 9:00, parents can drop in for an informal conversation and discuss topics that are percolating in the school community.

On Tuesday, January 28th, parents are invited to a Barton 101 session from 6:00 – 7:30 in the DeLapp Commons. Barton 101 is an opportunity for Barton parents to learn more about the educational philosophy and teaching practices that are central to an Open school program. There will be a combination of large group and small group learning experiences that evening.

The Minneapolis Public School Fair is on January 25th from 9:00 – 2:00 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. If you are a prospective Barton parent and want more information about our K-8 Open Magnet, please stop by our table!
