GRIT at Barclay

All Barclay students are working on having grit and saying yes to challenges. Here, they wrote the word grit on a piece of wood and then used sandpaper to try to sand the word out. They then discussed the effort needed to put in to sanding, and how that could translate to the classroom.

Math Curriculum Night

EVERY PARENT is invited to attend our special Parent Night at Barclay: “Get to the Nitty GRITTY of CB Math”. I am looking to see EVERY PARENT come out to dig into an official parent math lesson taught by YOUR CHILD’S teacher, just for you. The goal is to give you a better grasp on concepts your child will encounter throughout the school year as well as point you toward resources for continued support. This way, you can feel confident that you really ARE smarter than your fifth grader (or sixth grader, first grader, etc.)! Please know, this is a PARENT ONLY event. While we love the kids, they need to stay home so there will be no distraction as you learn with the teachers.


“Get to the Nitty GRITTY of CB Math” will be held on Thursday evening, October 16th. Be sure to RSVP to the invitations. Another invitation is coming home THIS Thursday in the Thursday envelope. RSVP so we know you are coming. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Drop-off and pick-up line at Barclay

Drop-off and pick-up line at Barclay: Please be sure to practice the SAFEST drop-off and pick-up procedures at all times. Be certain to:

  • Have your child get in and out on the RIGHT SIDE of the vehicle only
  • Do not need to get out of you vehicles, we will help small children with car doors if needed
  • Give that good-bye kiss or hug to your child before you pull up to the school, as some parents really lengthen the goodbye time which is inconsiderate to those behind you

Race for Education

Reminder: Barclay's 3rd Race For Education will be Friday, October 25th! Pay close attention to all deadlines and papers coming home.....
