What is PTA?

The Barnwell Elementary PTA is a group of parents who want to see our school succeed and our students be the best they can be. PTA membership is a great way to make yourself heard and to watch our school improve!


There's Still Time to Donate!

PTA Memberships are available year-round! Our goal is 100% family participation in our Fund-a-Bear Campaign. We are at 50% - will you help us reach our goal?
