Please join us next Wednesday, May 11, for our Spring Open House. Meet Principal Hernandez in the auditorium at 5:00 pm. From 5:30 to 6:45 classes will be open so you can check out the wonderful things your students have been learning.
SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium) testing begins for all 3rd graders on May 16. Fourth and fifth graders will begin testing on May 23. Make sure your children are well rested for this important part of their school year. Please note: Non-school personnel are not allowed in classrooms during state testing.

Last Friday morning Barnard students celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday by dressing up as their favorite Dr. Seuss book characters. We had several Thing 1 and Thing 2's on campus as well as many others. Parents came for Family Friday and read with students in their classrooms. Principal Hernandez was even able to get into some of the classrooms to read to the kids.
This Friday, March 4, is Family Friday!! We will be celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday by having students come dressed in their favorite Dr. Seuss book character. Classrooms might even get a visit from the Cat in the Hat and a couple of his favorite things.
