• Principal's Message

    Dear Barnwell Community,

    As we gear up for the new school year, I am thrilled to extend the warmest welcome to both returning and new members of our community.  I am honored to serve as the principal of Barnwell Elementary and appreciate the trust you place in us each day to lead your precious treasures.  My commitment to ensuring high level instruction happens in every classroom, for every student, every day guides my daily work.  It is my goal to foster an environment where student’s potentials are nurtured and where educators and parents collaborate to create a rich and fulfilling educational experience for our students. 

    My priority is to provide a safe and supportive learning space where students can experience academic success, personal growth, become critical thinkers, and explore their creativity.   Inclusivity and diversity are values that lie at the heart of our school’s beliefs.  We are committed to creating an inclusive environment where every student feels valued, respected, and empowered to embrace their unique qualities.

    At Barnwell, we are dedicated to enhancing student achievement through innovative teaching, encouraging active participation, and creating opportunities for collaborative learning.  Barnwell stands on the mantra Barnwell Bears are Kind, Respectful, and Positive.   It will always be my mission to enhance these innate qualities in our students, to help them grow to be resilient, innovative, and empathetic members of our community.

    Please feel free to contact me at Benning@fultonschools.org should you have any concerns.  I am confident that together, we can achieve remarkable progress and create a school year filled with achievements and meaningful experiences.

    Here’s to a successful and fulfilling year ahead!

    Warm Regards,

    Takisha Benning
