From the Principal
Dear Friends and Families of Barr Middle School,
As we enter into the new year, it is always nice to take time and reflect on some of the highlights from the present school year to date.
I would like to share some of the recent contributions and activities within our community that have been made by our Barr Middle School students and staff.
The eighth grade recently collected supplies to support the Meals on Wheels Outreach Program to promote good oral health. With these supplies, they assembled 120 bags that included toothpaste, mouthwash, floss and a toothbrush. The students then crafted a note and colored a picture that were also packed in each bag to bring a smile.
The Nanuet community along with our Barr staff, students and their families donated over $5,400 to the People to People Holiday Project this holiday season. These monies allowed us give clothing and toys to the needy children whose letters were “adopted” by Nancy Logan’s class. This year 36 letters were adopted from children in Rockland County who needed our help! Each of the 19 families received a basket packed with laundry detergent and toiletry items to last for close to a year! Every child that asked for a coat received one and every child or parent who wrote that they needed sheets, blankets and/or towels will be happy with their new ones!
This year our staff came up with a new way to support our local families. A Barr staff member donated a “Giving Tree” which was decorated and displayed in the main lobby and was used to collect hats, mittens and socks. The Giving Tree items were then distributed by The Family Resource Center to friends and families in our Nanuet community.
During the month of January, the Barr Student Council will be holding various activities to make a donation to the A-T Children’s Project. Monies will be raised through activities such as pizza and bake sales, a movie day and possibly an ice cream social.
This season is about giving and about being concerned about those less fortunate than ourselves. We can be proud of the various ways our Nanuet School Community is helping others and continuing to spread kindness.
Once again, thank you for your support and cooperation. May you all have a happy and healthy 2019!
