September Update 

Welcome back to a new school year, Barton family!

  • Remember to read every night. This is very important to become a lifetime learner.

  • Important Dates
    • Schools are closed for students on Friday, September 30th for teacher professional development. Enjoy your three-day weekend!
  • To volunteer in the classroom or as a field trip chaperone, please attain all of the required clearances. Ask your child's teacher or call the main office for help.

A Message from the Principal


Dear Barton Families,


The faculty and staff of Clara Barton School are committed to your child’s education. This year our goal is to have every child reading on grade level. We need your help to succeed. In order to meet this challenge, your child needs to read for 20 minutes every night. The more reading practice they have the better they will be at reading.


As Principal, I believe that our parents are our partners. My door is always open and I am willing to listen to your concerns, suggestions or any other issues. Together we can make this a great school year for your child.
