 The Giving Tree is Coming! This year's focus will be on providing  Barnwell families in need with support this holiday season. Barnwell  families in need are encouraged to sign up through a confidential sign  up which can only be accessed by school counselor, Ms. McGrath.  Please  use the following link to sign up:    http://bit.ly/barnwellgivingtree 

 Contact with families will only be made through Ms. McGrath and the  identity of families and the donations received by families will be  confidential. Another alternative for families in need is to sign up for  assistance directly with North Fulton Community Charities:     http://nfcchelp.org>how-we-help>apply-for-help

Barnwell's PTA is proud to announce this year’s musical, "Happily Ever After".  The world of fairy-tales is turned upside down when a gang of renegade  fairy-tale characters set out to “improve” the Brothers Grimm’s original  stories. Starring Evil Queen, Handsome Prince, Little Red, The Lost  Boys, and MANY more, It’s an irresistible mix of comedy, adventure, and  music! This event is 100% produced by the Barnwell PTA & cast  parents. All who audition will get a part in the show. To learn more and  sign up, please visit barnwelltheater.com!

Does  your child love Six Flags? Do they also love to read? It’s easy to earn  a free ticket just by doing what you enjoy, reading!

Six  Flags Read to Succeed is a program designed to encourage reading for  pleasure in kids grades K-6. Barnwell PTA has partnered with Six Flags  to bring this program to you this year. 

Look for a reading log from your teacher to be sent home soon. Registering your student is easy.

  1. Create an account at sixflags.com/books. Use the teacher specific code provided on your yellow reading log.
  2. Record the number of minutes your student reads between now and February.  6 hours (360 minutes) earns you a free pass to Six Flags!
  3. Record your student’s Reading on the website. Paper forms will not be needed this year.
  4. Receive a free Six Flags Over Georgia ticket from your teacher in May to be used between June-December 2020.
