The staff and parents at Barron Park want to welcome you to our school community. We encourage you to connect with teachers and parents to help answer questions and become familiar with the school.
Each fall, Barron Park PTA purchases all school supplies for each classroom according to the teacher's needs--so parents are not asked to purchase these individually. This saves parents time and assures that each teacher get exactly what they need. The PTA requests that families make a per-student donation towards the cost of the school supplies via the Annual Giving One-Check Form.
There are plenty of ways to find out about what's going on at school:

There are plenty of ways to get involved at Barron Park. Teachers need classroom volunteers, the libary needs parents to work with their child's classroom, and PTA needs help planning acitivities and events at the school.
