• Principal's Message


    Dear Parents,

    Barnwell is a special community, filled with wonderful students, supportive parents and amazing teachers! I appreciate the trust you place in us each day as we strive to make this our best year ever – a year filled with learning, love and laughter! I take great pride in serving as principal and am fortunate to be working with an extraordinary staff and parent community as we strive to be a “joyful community of collaborative, engaged and empowered learners.”

    Open, two-way communication is vital to ensure a successful home-school partnership throughout the year. Our teachers depend on you to let them know about your child’s needs – please make every effort throughout the year to be involved and stay in touch with us.  

    Each Friday we publish our school newsletter with the latest news, events and updates about our school. Please take time to read this newsletter – it is the best way for you to stay informed and get involved!

    As principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our front doors – all of our students, staff and parents – feel valued and know that they are an important part of our school family! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, nurturing and fun environment.

    We can only be successful with the support and involvement of our parents and community. I am grateful for the incredible support Barnwell parents provide on a daily basis to our staff and our Parent Organization. For years we’ve had a successful PTA and a successful Foundation, and are now combining both groups into a new Barnwell Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). Your PTO sponsorship provides the financial resources necessary for a successful year, funding many academic necessities as well as many fun activities and events!

    Thank you for your partnership and support. Together, we are #BarnwellSTRONG!

    If I can ever be of assistance, please call or email me!
