ALL BARRY FAMILIES
Character Strong - Family Dares
I hope you all had a chance to participate in last week's family dare: No Tech Table Time.
Please consider joining us in this week's family dare: Walking Trash Pick Up. After spending the last few hours outside having a picnic and playing with the family, this family dare seemed like the perfect challenge for the upcoming week of beautiful weather. Take advantage of the opportunity to spend time together outdoors while helping make your surroundings cleaner and healthier!

This year we are using a digital source. Please ask your child to show you their ICAP, located in their Google sheets. Once you have reviewed your child's choices, please complete the form below to indicate that you have reviewed their ICAP.
