Thank you Ms. Jackson! Ms. Jackson gave many of the students in grades 1-3 books to get them started on their summer reading adventure. Reading aloud everyday will help strengthen reading fluency and comprehension. The students are also encouraged to visit the Milwaukee Public Library to sign up for the summer reading program and win prizes for reading. The student page on the Barton School website has excellent educational websites. Have a fun and safe summer break. The Barton teachers and staff look forward to seeing you back at Barton September 1st!

Camp Minikani, 2015!
Forty five 4th, 5th and 6th graders explored Camp Miniknai April 29th-May 1st. During their time at camp, the campers discovered what lives in a wetland, found their way in the woods using a compass and hit the target using a bow and arrow. The campers also learned how to work as a team to get over a “lava river” and they were challenged to climb a wall. During the evening, the students experienced what it is like to be a predator or a prey and, of course, they were able to enjoy eating smores and tell stories at the Thursday night campfire.
