A Message from the Principal

Dear Barton Families,

The faculty and staff of Clara Barton School are committed to your child’s education. This year our goal is to have every child reading on grade level. We need your help to succeed. In order to meet this challenge, your child needs to read for 20 minutes every night. The more reading practice they have the better they will be at reading.

As Principal, I believe that our parents are our partners. My door is always open and I am willing to listen to your concerns, suggestions or any other issues. Together we can make this a great school year for your child.
