BPS Students Receive Early Christmas Presents
Barnwell Primary School is fortunate to have had over 1,000 pairs of shoes donated by a shoe company called TOMS and by our Save the Children program. The shoes are to help our students play and be active and healthy at home, at school, and in gym class. Shoes are being distributed to our students this week! They're great for running, playing, basketball, football, etc.! Thank you, TOMS and Save the Children!
