Kindness Campaign Shout Out!!!
We are so incredibly proud of our 6th Grade student, Jasen G!
Jasen took the idea of a "Day of Service" inspired by Martin Luther King Jr. and collected food and change to donate to the local food bank!
Jasen set the goal
"I would like to collect 50 cans for a shelter and money to buy more food for the pantry"
It is the Mission of Barnum School to create a healthy and safe environment where the total school community educates all students with the skills and knowledge needed to become literate, productive, and responsible adults and citizens.
We believe Barnum School will achieve this mission when all of our students are:
- cooperative, respectful and accepting of each other's differences
- independent, self-reliant learners who are capable of making effective decisions
- optimistic and believe in themselves and their own abilities
- challenged, engaged and having fun learning
We also believe Barnum School will achieve this mission when all staff:
- work cooperatively to establish a safe and healthy environment
- work with children and parents to foster the belief that lack of education is not an option
- have high expectations for all students
- have a shared vision and values
- are positive role models for the entire Barnum School community
- engage parents in understanding their important role in educating their children
