THE COMPETITION IS HEATING UP…

THE COMPETITION IS HEATING UP…

If you haven’t sent in your PTA membership form and $6.00 dues, now is the time. The class that has the most memberships by September 30th is rewarded an ice cream party. The competition is heating up and some classes are neck and neck at this point! Tell your parents, neighbors, family and friends or anyone else who is interested in your child’s education!

Reasons to join: Your dues will help support various programs, presentations and awards, you will have the opportunity to vote on various topics at the PTA mtgs and most importantly, you are showing your child that you are involved in their education.

COMMON QUESTIONS: 

Q: Is a membership for each family?

A: No, a membership is for each person.

Q: What happens if I have 2 or more children in different classes?

A: As long as all teachers are listed on the membership form, those classes will receive credit.

Q: If I join, do I have to come to the PTA meetings?

A: No, there is no obligation if you join but we would certainly welcome you!

Q: I am not able to volunteer, why should I join?

A: We are FULLY funded by fundraisers and PTA memberships. Your membership dues would help out the Barron School tremendously!

Too Many Shoes? Not everyone has the same problem!

PLEASE CLEAN OUT YOUR CLOSETS AND DONATE TO OUR SHOE DRIVE! 

There are so many less fortunate people out there who could really benefit from this shoe drive. Not only are we helping others, but Barron School get $ for every pound we turn in. Tell your friends, neighbors and family. There are shoe bins set up in the lobby of the school. We also do pick ups!! Let’s work together and make this a huge success!!

We are doing a 90 day challenge to see if our school can get 300 bags of shoes! Each bag of shoes needs to have 25 pairs of shoes in it. We are collecting everything and anything that goes on your feet (slippers, sandals, shoes, boots, skates, roller blades and flip flops). Men’s, women’s and children’s shoes are accepted.

If you would like to schedule a pick up, please contact Rene Rheault at rene.rheault@gmail.com and a pick up time will be arranged!

Welcome Back!

Welcome Back! Despite extremely hot weather, our annual Barron School Ice Cream Social was a huge success! It was so great to see so many of you come out to meet the teachers, sign up for your PTA membership, stock up on items in the school store, sign up to volunteer at your favorite events, talk about how much fun the Barron Golf Tournament will be and cool off with some yummy ice cream! We urge everyone to get involved and most importantly HAVE FUN doing it! We have something for everyone. Communication is key!
