Teacher Appreciation Week 2019

Monday, May 6 - Friday, May 10

Sponsored by the PTO, Teacher Appreciation Week is an annual tradition at Barrie School during which parents express thanks and appreciation to faculty and staff for their support of our children. We will have activities and/or events each day across campus. We encourage Barrie families to participate in some or all of the activities/events. Please don't forget the specialists, Extended Day staff, administration team, the nurse, and maintenance staff.

Let’s make this a week to remember for Barrie Faculty and Staff!
