BARBIERI BULLETIN: FAMILY EDITION
May 8, 2023
Good morning Barbieri Families,
Ms. Burke (Grade 5 Bilingual Teacher at Barbieri for 19 years) and I had a wonderful experience in Puerto Rico this weekend representing the district, specifically our school, in recruiting and hiring teachers. It is exciting to be part of Pa'Lante pilot program that we hope FPS continues to build, to foster relationships in Puerto Rico to continue hiring qualified bilingual educators for our schools. We were able to interview several educators as a team to begin hiring for the 23-24 school year.
NO STRIKE!!! We are incredibly thankful to our bus drivers. They are our unsung heros that do the important work of bringing our hawks to and from school everyday! THANK YOU FPS DRIVERS!!!!
Que tengan una linda semana,
MCAS Year 2023
MCAS Message for families in Grades 3-5
During MCAS testing season please ensure that your child has a good night's sleep and full breakfast! Please remember that breakfast is available at school for all students! ALL STUDENTS SHOULD ARRIVE TO SCHOOL ON TIME!
STE- Science Technology and Engineering
ELA- English Language Arts
During testing ALL ELECTRONIC DEVICES ARE PROHIBTED. This includes cell phones and apple watches, etc. Please be sure that you discuss with your child that if they chose to still bring these devices to school they will need to give these devices to their classroom teacher/testing proctor BEFORE testing begins and they will receive them AFTER the testing session has ended. This is a non-negotiable. If any device is set off (rings, vibrates, etc.) during testing we risk having to invalidate tests.
Thank you for all of your support at home and for understanding!
