In April of 2022, Barton hosted an Earth Day Event in which students were able to hear from Councilmembers Katherine Gilmore Richardson and Quetcy Lozada on the importance of climate change, as well as how they can help to combat against it. Students were able to learn about how pinwheels work, sort items between recycling and trash, place how they will help fight climate change into a time capsule, learn about insects with the help of Insectopia and the Free Library of Philadelphia – Wyoming Branch, and participate in a food tasting provided by Eat.
