Happy Monday!

Happy Monday - and what feels like FALL finally! :)

Thank you to the entire community for a wonderful Curriculum Night on Wednesday, September the 11th.  I was amazed at the turnout, even with the high temperatures! Pictures will come soon and I will post the presentation from myself and Liz Whitelam (our PTO president) on the Barrows Homepage as a reference or for any family that was unable to make it.

Also, Thank you to Ms. Cashins for hosting a coffee meet & greet and inviting her neighbors over to meet and talk with me about our school.  If you are able and interested please contact me to set up a time!

Finally... a little mystery for you.  The table pictured below will help me measure how many of the Barrows students I've met.  Wondering how?  Check back in a few weeks to see!

Have a wonderful week!

Back-to-school picnic and Jail & Bail

The PTO hosted back-to-school picnic on Friday night was a great way to cap off the start to our school year.  Many Barrows families pulled out the blankets and chairs, packed picnic dinners (or bought pizza to enjoy!)  I had fun sharing the experience with my own family and watching the relaxed interactions between families and children playing on the playground.

Today at the Reading Fall Street Faire I was locked up in the Jail & Bail to support the Understanding Disabilities program.  Thank you to everybody in the Barrows community for their support in bailing me out - even Dr. Doherty pitched in to bail me out.  What a fun day and a great cause.
