Students, Parents, Teachers & Friends of Education,

Greetings Barrow County School System members and supporters!

We are excited to open the doors to each of our schools and welcome back our teachers and learners all across Barrow County! As our system vision statement proudly states: We are all BOLDLY COMMITTED TO STUDENT SUCCESS!

Our staff is highly qualified and undeniably committed to the children and families we work with. We consistently research and incorporate the best instructional strategies in order to promote growth in student achievement and success for each and every child. I know I am truly blessed each day to be able to work and learn with such a talented and committed staff of professional educators and caring staff members. I strongly believe each one of your children is also!

Our entire school system is highly supported by a network of very involved parents, grandparents and other stakeholders including numerous Partners-In-Education, alumni, former teachers, local businesses, and community volunteers. We are always open to your ideas and suggestions and encourage you to be an active part of your child's education.

We thank you for sharing your children with us each and every day! We are going to have a BOLDly amazing year!
All the best!
