Daily Announcements

  Welcome back to Barton Chapel Elementary School,
                                  2014 - 2015!!

We welcome to our New Principal, Dr. Carletha  Doyle!

Our new principal Dr. Doyle sends a live message for the Winning Season at Barton Chapel to all B.C.E.S. families and stakeholders.

Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.

-Rita Pierson

Welcome to the opening of what promises to be a wonderful school year!  This time of the year is often filled with great anticipation of what is to come. I too am excited as I embark on my new journey as principal at Barton Chapel Elementary.

One of our main goals this year is to be intentional in our practice. We will accomplish this by building the capacity of all stakeholders. This begins with developing ownership among staff and students as meaningful decisions are made to impact teaching and learning. The staff at Barton Chapel is committed to maintaining and fostering accountability by targeting instruction, monitoring data, planning, reflecting and engaging in professional learning opportunities as we embark on our quest to make the best BETTER!

This is our season!; A season for an increased emphasis on making it happen for our students.  We plan to accomplish this by being proactive as we plan for the social, emotional, and academic success of our students.

Together, teachers, students, and parents/guardians make a strong Barton Chapel family.  Your support is appreciated as your child enters the classroom and continues their journey of growth and development throughout the year.  Let’s all commit to making the best better by putting our best foot forward with each opportunity that is availed to us to positively impact the lives of others.

Our theme for the year is “Game planning for a winning season!” Throughout this process, I look forward to teaming with each of you as we strive to make the best BETTER by exemplifying the champion that our students need!

All the best!

Dr. Carletha Doyle
