December 15 is Polar Express Day at Barrow! This is a memorable tradition where Students wear their pajamas to school and go to the Media Center with their class to hear a reading of the Polar Express story, have hot cocoa and receive a bell (with the reminder to “Always Believe!”). We will need volunteers to make cocoa, serve it, and give bells to each student. The event runs from 8am to 2pm and no prior experience is needed! If you are interested in helping the day of, please contact — Janice Flory (firstname.lastname@example.org). To make sure all students have a pair of pajamas to wear, we are collecting donations starting now! If you are able, please consider donating a pair of new children’s pajamas (sizes 5-16) – you can send them in with your child or deliver them to the front office.
Last, please consider helping us decorate our Barrow Holiday Tree! During this holiday season, we are asking for donations to the E. A. Brown fund so that we can continue to do the good work that E. A. Brown started! Donations of any amount will be welcomed and in return, we will hang an ornament on the Barrow holiday tree with your family’s name. It will be a beautiful symbol of the Barrow Elementary Community that we all love so much! To donate and get your Family Ornament, please click here to be directed to our secure square page.
