June 5, 2023- Eye of the Tiger Family Message

Dear Barrett Families:

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!

June is PRIDE Month!  Pride Month celebrates and supports our LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex ) students and staff and encourages everyone to honor our diverse community. Pride is celebrated each June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan, New York. It is important to highlight greater acceptance and support for all youth, including those who are or are perceived to be LGBTQ, to make our community safer and better places for all of our students.

Please see the messages below:
