From the Principal
Dear Friends and Families of Barr Middle School,
As we enter the holiday season, it is always nice to take time and reflect on some of the highlights from the present school year to date.
We are excited about the launch of our Grade 8 Buddy program in conjunction with our 5th grade. Our 5th graders wrote a letter to their assigned grade 8 “buddy” and the 8th grader responded in a letter. The buddies from both grades were able to meet up and chat during an 8th grade Halloween activity. The 8th Grade enjoyed a full day of Halloween festivities.
Grade 8 hosted a Team Building Day, working collaboratively on different Project Adventure based challenges, rotating through various stations.
Grade 7 also held a Team Building Day on a beautiful, sunny day at the Outdoor Education Center where the students engaged in social-emotional activities that fostered comradery and empathy for others. Our Grade 7 students also saw the return of our popular Halloween Knight event.
As always, thank you for your support. It is my hope that you have a happy and healthy holiday season!
