BPS is teaming up with the American Heart Association October 19th - 23rd for Jump Rope for Heart.  Jump Rope For Heart is a community service learning program of the American Heart Association. It teaches kids:
1) the importance of developing heart-healthy habits;
2) that being physically active can be fun;
3) that raising funds to support cardiovascular research and education helps save lives in their community and across the country. BPS is looking forward to your support!

2015-2016 BPS Teacher of the Year

Barnwell Primary is pleased to announce our 2015-16 Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Farmer Brown. Mrs. Brown has been teaching at BPS over 20 years. She is a caring and compassionate teacher, who obviously enjoys her job. She uses interesting and innovative ideas in her classroom, and tries to give each student exactly what they need. She has a pleasant attitude and is encouraging to her students while expecting them to behave and achieve to their potential. She holds her students to high standards and has high expectations for them, but at the same time, earns their love and respect. Mrs. Brown is skillful at her job, and has successfully taught at several grade levels. Congratulations, Mrs. Brown! We love you!

Barnwell Primary is raising funds to purchase a bronze garden sculpture similar to the one pictured below in memory of our beloved guidance counselor, Ms. Anita Wiggins, who passed away earlier this year.  Please donate any amount that you can to help with this important project by clicking on the DONATE NOW button below the picture.  Thank you!

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:
