Message from the Principal
I hope you all enjoy the beautiful weather ahead and show some extra love to the special women in our lives! I will spend the weekend with my son, husband and mother in law! I haven't seen my mother in law in person since February of 2020. I hear Mr. Quincy has a special brunch planned for us :-).

Message from your Barbieri Art Teachers!!! (Grade 5 families)
To celebrate the 5th Grade graduating class and their time here at Barbieri, each student in-person and remote will create a self-portrait tile to be displayed in our lobby. All students will draw a self-portrait on a 6x6" sheet of white drawing paper to be collaged onto a painted tile. Remote artists will be provided with a Self-Portrait Art Kit to complete the first part of this project. Remote students will artistically direct in-person students in the painting of their tile using a buddy system. It has been a challenging year and we are excited to see the looks of pride on your childrens' faces upon completion of their masterpiece!
