“Tis the Season!” November through January is a time that holds many holiday celebrations that our families anticipate and hold dear. Regardless of the special days that your family commemorates, our wish for you and your family is that special memories are created and that joy and peace fill your homes.
Thank you for your strong support of our Boosterthon fundraiser! Through your support, our students raised over $20,000 and had an awesome time at the Funrun. Proceeds will be combined with last year’s PTO fundraiser monies to make needed improvements to our playgrounds.
Students and staff recently viewed an anti-discrimination PowerPoint presentation entitled, “The Voices of Barfield,” in which students are encouraged to be empowered not only to report when they or another student is being mistreated, but to recognize the importance of showing respect to ALL STUDENTS, no matter their circumstances. The results of a follow-up survey will be used to define any areas that need improvement in our school.
As 2018 approaches, I challenge each of us to be UNITED in our desire to contribute in positive ways to make our world be a better place in which to live, grow, and learn. KINDNESS in both word and action toward others is how we show our intention to accomplish this mission. The Staff of Barfield Elementary School joins me in wishing you the happiest of holiday seasons and a bright and joyful New Year!
