Barnwell Primary School Gives Five!
Take a look at what fun the students, teachers, staff, and administration at Barnwell Primary are having staying in shape!  We accepted First Lady Michelle Obama's and Ellen's challenge to learn the #GimmeFive dance!  We hope it motivates you to get moving!  Thank you Kia Valentine for teaching the dance to everyone.  Also, a special thanks goes to Dr. Craig Wix for volunteering his time and talent to create a great video for us to share.

BPS would love to earn free equipment and supplies!! Our Bi-Lo savings code is 55938!

The BI-LO Hometown Educational Rewards program allows parents and supporters to link their personal BI-LO BONUSCARD® to local schools (up to 3 schools). Then, each time they shop with their personal BONUSCARD®, the school automatically earns points towards free equipment and supplies! Throughout the year, the points that schools accumulate can be redeemed for free educational items from the BI-LO catalog.
We need our BPS parents, along with our community, to link their BI-LO card with our BPS code!  Click on the BI-LO logo above or go to:
BI-LO Education Rewards
Thank you for your support!

Ms. Sherry Woods was recently named the
 BPS Teacher of the Year for 2014-15!
