Adventures at Barr
In certain classes throughout the school, students work on puzzles to celebrate National Puzzle Day.

By utilizing puzzles, people can stimulate the brain to improve a number of skills.

During a faculty meeting, teachers create and divide pie charts into minute chunks, representing what a 42 or 55 minute period portrays in their classroom. Teachers then share helpful strategies and best practices with their colleagues pertaining to their respective classrooms.

If you wonder about making a decision which is "right" or "kind", always go with "kind", because kindness is always right.
Be kind. Everyday. To Everyone.
