Barnett Elementary celebrates with Ice Cream Social May 24

Barnett Elementary teachers, staff, students, and families will celebrate the school’s recent honor as a California Distinguished School with an Ice Cream Social.

Funded by Barnett’s Parent Teacher Association, the social will be at the school, 23925 Couna Way, from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 24.

“An achievement of this magnitude can only be accomplished through the efforts of many,” said Principal Kim Reed. “I’m proud of our students for the incredible gains they have made and proud of the adults of the Barnett community who came together to make that learning possible.”

At a recent school board meeting, Ramona Unified School District Superintendent Robert Graeff presented Reed with a plaque “in recognition of the school’s high academic expectations for all students, powerful learning, dedicated school leadership, and competent caring teachers.” After accepting the plaque, Reed thanked Barnett teachers and parents and the school board “for your unending support.”

Also to commemorate the award, the PTA plans a wall of 200 tiles at the entrance to the school’s main office.

The tiles are blank, and students, parents, staff, community members, and businesses may purchase them to paint and decorate. Tiles range from $25 to

$100 each, with proceeds going to a new Peaceful Playground program for the school.

Tiles will be available during the Ice Cream Social. Checks must be payable to Barnett Elementary School. Contributions are tax-deductible.

To purchase tiles or for more information, contact PTA volunteer Denise Drum at 619-518-3122.
