Barrett Rover Readers are here for Black History Month!

Black History Month has arrived, and we are thrilled to share with you that we will be holding another one of our roving reader events this month. Roving reader events are form an important part of our school community and serve to celebrate and recognize the multiple achievements and milestones that various cultural or gender groups have had to face throughout history. More importantly, Wednesday, February 22, 2023, will serve as a day where many members and leaders of our community will congregate at our school to further educate our students. All of this education is done through the promotion of age-appropriate multicultural literature that are our roving readers read to our students when they visit them.

We are always looking for new roving readers to join our team, so if any of this interests you, please reach out to Arturo Ramirez at Barrett Elementary School to learn more. Contact:
