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.

Meet the Principal
All parents are invited to come and meet with Ms. Garrido. Whether you are a new parent to our school or have been a part of our school for many years, Ms. Garrido would like to share with the community our new mission and vision for our students. Information regarding the District's Literacy Plan will be presented and how YOU can support the school in helping your child be successful! Other members of the leadership team will be present. Please make arrangements to come!
Door prizes will be given PLUS if you come, your child will receive a pass to wear blue jeans on that Friday!
Thursday, September 11, 2014
Parents are to report directly to their child's classroom.
Your child will receive an ice cream treat on Friday if you come to Open House!
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
