Kate Waller Barrett Elementary School offers a quality education to all children in a caring environment that recognizes and respects multicultural diversity. Centrally located, Barrett serves as the school for the Arlington Forest and Buckingham neighborhoods.
Unique among Arlington Schools, Barrett’s Project Discovery and Project Interaction link the entire school in an integrated program using hands-on, activity-centered instruction to promote an in-depth understanding of science and math in everyday life, a mastery of technology tools that shape the frontiers of knowledge and a strong foundation in the communication arts that fosters critical thinking and clear expression.
4th and 5th grade classes made quilt blocks during the month of April. They designed, used sewing machines to create, and hand quilted their individual quilts after studying Gees Bend quilts.
Do you have children’s books in your home that you would like to donate to Barrett’s Arlington Book Shelf? If yes, please bring these books to school and place them in the donation book in the front lobby.
