  • Children are allowed to bring costumes to school on Halloween however they will only be able to wear them the last hour of the day.  As costumes can become a big distraction, we don't want the cosutmes to take away from learning the rigourous standards.  Children are not allowed to bring fake or plastic weapons of any kind, fake blood or anything that can be considered gore.  Teachers will have the option of having a Halloween party for the last hour of the day if they so choose.  Be safe on Halloween night!

  • Teamwork with Teachers at Barge-Lincoln!

    Posted by Tori Brennan on 8/29/2019

    Barge-Lincoln teachers had a team-building activity to collaborate, communicate, and create two picnic tables that can be shared in our courtyard.  Teachers worked together to take all necessary pieces of the table and build, using the tools/directions a large picnic table.  The end products are now housed in the courtyard and will be utilized by intervention groups, staff, and community members.

    It was a positive, fun-filled, and challenging activity that brought joy to Barge!
