06 May 2015 ~ 0 Comments


May is a very busy month! It’s the end of the school year and we are pushing to raise money for our kids!                                                                                                                                     


  • The art fundraiser is in and will be going home today (thank you to everyone who purchased)
  • Fudruckers in Methuen is donating 20% of everyone’s order on Friday May 8th from 5-8 pm. Be sure to bring in the voucher that went home with your child so that Barron can receive credit. Feel free to make copies and pass them out to your friends and family!
  • Orange Leaf (390 Main St in Salem) is also donating 20% of each order on Thursday May 21st from 5-9 pm. Be sure to mention it’s for Barron School to receive credit. Tell your friends and family!

WHAT: 5th graders and staff dodgeball tournament against other Salem schools, music and dancing for the whole family, face painting, food and fun!

WHERE: Salem High School

WHEN: Wednesday March 4th

TIME: 5:30 pm


WHY: We NEED all of our Barron families to come out and show that Barron pride! Let’s cheer on our 5th graders and staff! Wear your Barron attire or red to show your support! LET’S GO BOBCATS!!!!

Pizza slices, Kona Ice, popcorn and waters will be available for sale. Please note: you may pre-purchase a large cheese pizza for $8 but all slips and payments need to be sent into Barron by Friday February 20th. **Any profits from the food sales will be divided between the participating schools and go toward the Dental Program.

**Please consider bringing food donations that will go toward the 68 Hours Of Hunger program. A program designed to address the approximate 68 hours between a student’s school lunch Friday afternoon til the Monday morning school breakfast. THIS IS A NEED THAT OFTEN GOES UNNOTICED IN OUR COMMUNITY. Several Salem families are homeless or face financial circumstances that result in children having very little to eat outside of school. 

FOOD SUGGESTIONS: Peanut butter, jelly, canned pasta (Spaghettios), canned soup, macaroni and cheese, Ramen noodles, canned fruits or fruit cups, granola bars, cereal, pop tarts, canned tuna or chicken, crackers, pudding cups, instant oatmeal and Parmalot whole milk.
