Home/School Communication

  • School Newsletter

    The school newsletter, The Barrett Buzz, is sent home every other Friday, with students. The newsletter reports on school and community events of interest, and highlights student and staff achievement. PTA news is included, also. Please check the “Buzz” for dates of upcoming school events.

    Weekly Assignment Sheet

    A weekly assignment sheet (otherwise known as the "Homework Sheet" or the "Green Sheet") is sent home each day with students in grades K-2. This sheet details daily homework assignments and makes comments as necessary about the student's day. Parents are asked to review the assignment sheet with their child and initial it each day. A space for parent comments and questions is provided. Completed and signed sheets/agendas should be returned to school daily. Students in grades 3-5 will have daily agenda books.

    Grade-Level Newsletter/Syllabi

    Grade level newsletters/syllabi are sent home by classroom teachers at the beginning of each quarter to provide an overview of learning objectives, content, and activities that will be the focus for the nine week period.
