Barton Hills Bulletin

November 16-20

From Kati

Thank you to our LA/SS Cadre and our 6th grade No Place For Hate Leadership Committee (along with Sarah P. and Collins) for the lovely Veteran's Day Assembly. I love that we have some Veteran's we've celebrated for 11 years and they are touched by the recognition. I told them they are ALWAYS welcome to come and we will celebrate them at our assembly.


It's Turkey Lunch Day on Thursday! This is always a great day for parents to come eat and we know it gets a little nutty. I will thank you in advance for some flexibility and patience. I've adjusted the lunch schedule and hopefully it will provide enough buffer so the line doesn't back up. However, if it does, we'll just go with the flow!



Have a great week.

Additional Information/Updates/ Reminders


  • As parents return the "RSVP" (such that it is) for the Turkey Day lunch, please send them to the cafeteria.

  • Austin Trail of Lights invites elementary students to participate in a Holiday Writing Contest. In order to participate, students write a story about someone who has done something kind for them or for their family. Drawings are encouraged! Please see attached flyer for additional competition details.

    Principals should submit the top three essays from their schools to info@austintrailoflights.org by Friday, November 20.
