Hello Barka Community,
Welcome to our PTA website. I hope you find it easy to navigate and informative throughout the school year. My name is Michelle McKinnon and I am the current PTA President. This will be my fifth year as a board member and I am proud to say I have enjoyed every single bit of it so far!! In the past during December we would have a Holiday Vendor Fair/Kids Go Shopping. This event was much more work than what it was worth, and kids and parents alike did not like it very much!! This year we have decided to go with a Frost Fest Week during the last week prior to Holiday Break. We will hold raffles everyday, have a theme every day, and have a big raffle prize the last day!! Every student will receive a raffle ticket and have a chance to win. There will be more details to follow regarding how this will run and what the daily themes will be!! It will be a lot of fun!!
During the book fair, (for those that attended family night), you may have noticed a couple of holiday wish trees in the foyer!! We gave each teacher in the school some snowflakes to write down things they may need for their classroom. This helps out parents like you and I who rack their brain on what to get them that is affordable and useful and obviously needed. These trees will be out again during parent teacher conferences, so please be sure to check it out and pluck a snowflake from the tree. DO NOT FORGET OUR SPECIALS TEACHERS (Computer, library, gym, music, and art). They count too!!
The holiday parade was a huge success for Barka!! Our float received THIRD PLACE out of 30!! Thank you to all of the volunteers that helped put it together!! It was great fun!! If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com
