WELCOME TO THE 2014-2015 SCHOOL YEAR
To prepare all scholars for college, Barrick Elementary educates PK-5 students through rigorous academics, data-driven instruction, and a culture of excellence.
Responsibility ♦ Purpose ♦ Achievement ♦ Urgency
Barrick Elementary exists to provide a learning environment that transforms students into contenders who will be able to compete for a seat in the school, college, and career of their choice.
This is one our safety practices. Every parent must have a car tag to pick up their child after school. You may come by the school at the dates and times below to get your car tag.
Barrick Elementary is a uniform school. Our colors are navy blue and gold.
Students may wear navy blue or khaki pants/skirts and navy blue or gold polo shirts.
Our school hours will remain the same as last year.
Instruction begins at 7:45 a.m. each morning.
Students who are late are missing instruction.
Attendance Bell: 9:30 a.m.
Dismissal 3:15 p.m.
Every Wednesday Dismissal 12:45 p.m.
Students may NOT be picked up after 2:15 p.m. (12:00 on Wednesdays)
Please plan doctor appointments on Wednesday afternoons so that students do not miss instruction.
Every student was asked to read 5 books this summer. I know Barrick students love reading because we sold about $15,000 worth of books at our book fairs!
Students who turn in their list of books they read by September 5, will enter to win one of four Kindles!
Every teacher and administrator also read 5 books!
Barrick Elementary is known for having great attendance!
However, last year, absences were very high.
We had 17 students who accounted for 419 absences!
Students who have perfect attendance will earn a trophy at the end of the school year. Students who miss 3 days or less will receive a good attendance pin.
Every minute counts!
SCHOOL ATTENDANCE= SCHOOL SUCCESS
