May 1, Fri: Charles Barrett Earth Day Celebration


May 4–8, Mon – Fri: Teacher Appreciation Week

Support needed both in and out of school leading up to and through the events!

The PTA will organize activities throughout the week as a small sign of our gratitude to CBES teachers and staff. We will celebrate all who make CBES a safe, clean, nurturing, and supportive environment for our children throughout the year. You will receive separate communication from room parents on activities in your child(ren)’s class specifically.

How can you contribute?

You can donate your time, talents, and supplies/equipment.  We need a team of people to reach out to the local business community for gift certificates and prizes to raffle off to our hard-working teachers and staff.  If you have a relationship with a local business owner (coffee shop, restaurant, spa, other), or have a knack for this sort of thing, we need your help! Please contact Tammy (t_n_adams@comcast.net) and Dubis (dubiscorreal@yahoo.com). More info and Sign Up Genius sheet to follow.

May 9, Sat, 3 – 6 pm: Barrett Bazaar, playing fields outside the Rec Center. Save the date for the spring carnival!

Please sign up for a shift: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040c4eaea82fa13-barrett or
