Dear Parent and Student, It's a new day. It's a fresh start. It's another time to begin.

Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year. Each new year is filled with potential, adventures, opportunities, and discoveries. Thank you for your continuous support. As we embark upon another year, we welcome the changes that have taken place. Out theme for this year is "Infinite Possibilities." Like all parents, you send your sons and daughters to Barton Chapel Elementary with the hope of entering am environment that is both compassionate and challenging, a culture that respects and values students as individuals and in which they are afforded the opportunity to achieve their potential. We value our scholars and look forward to helping them to soar beyond the possibilities and accomplish their mission in life. Furthermore, we agree to continue aligning our practice and resources toward that purpose for discovering and uncovering our scholars' potential for achieving.

As we move forward into the 2013-2-14 school year, we extend to you a heartfelt welcome to come aboard and assist us with ensuring that our scholars will learn, and we will do whatever it takes to move them to the next level of success. Our goal is to promote higher levels of learning for every child entrusted to us, not because of legislation or fear of sanctions, but because we at Barton Chapel Elementary School have a moral and ethical imperative to do so. Therefore, I strongly believe that working cooperatively together as partners in education, we will have a sustainable impact on our scholars' learning.

My challenge to you is to visit our Parents' Resource Center, volunteer, participate with our monthly Parent and Child Time Together (P.A.C.T.) at Barton Chapel Elementary School, and read twenty minutes every day to your child and watch him or her flourish.

Again, thank you for choosing our school for your sons and daughters.

Remember: "Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity."

   A Teacher of the Year 2013-2014 
  Thank you, Ms.Avery. You are NUMBER ONE!! 
Teachers have the great task of turning the ordinary into extraordinary. I  
  believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring,
  and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow. As an educator, it is my
  desire to help students meet their fullest potential by providing an
  environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites
sharing of ideas.
  For myself, teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth.
 One of my hopes as an educator is to instill a love of learning in my students;
as I share my own passion of learning with them. I feel there is a need for compassionate, strong,
and dedicated individuals who are excited about working with children. In our competitive society,
it is important for students to not only receive a solid education, but to work with someone who is aware of
and sensitive to their individual needs. I am a teacher who will always strive to help students achieve their success.

                 "A message from coach Butler
  I truly believe each and every scholar has the potential to bring something
  unique and special to the world. I will help scholars to develop their
  potential by believing in themselves as capable individuals. The goal is to
  assist scholars in discovering who they are; so they can express their
  opinions and nurture their ideas. My vision consists of a world where people   
  learn to respect, accept, and embrace the differences between us and life
