From the Principal's Pen

The final days of this school year are fast approaching and we have so many reasons to celebrate our students’ progress that go beyond the academics. We’ve seen them make mistakes and learn from them, and we’ve seen them grow taller while moving closer to reaching their goals toward becoming all that they were intended to be. Thank you for the roles that you have played in contributing to the partnerships that have made possible these successes.


Our students in grades 3-5 have completed the required state assessments in Reading, Math, Social Studies, and Science (TNReady/TCAP). While the results of these tests will not arrive in time to be factored into students’ final grades, these reports will provide vital information about where our teachers need to adjust instructional plans for next year as we seek to advance Tennessee’s very high academic standards.


We appreciate so much your support during this testing process. Whether you were able to provide class treats, serve as a proctor, or just make sure your child was at school on time each day during testing, we appreciate your efforts!


A special recognition must be given to Beth Petroka, our PTO President, and our PTO Board for their tremendous support and the many volunteers who have given of their time, talents, and ideas this year to provide wonderful learning tools and the special events that make Barfield Elementary School a special place to be for everyone!
