PRINCIPAL - LETTER TO COMMUNITY

  • Love

    Dear Barker Central School Community, 

    This school year is flying by so quickly! There have been so many amazing things going on at Barker this year. As we head into the last few weeks of school, there are some important dates and information that we would like to share with you. 

    PreK registration is now open for students who are 4 years old or will be turning 4 before December 1, 2024. You can find all of the registration information on our website. Our program is full-day, from 7:50 am to 2:30 pm. Placement is not guaranteed and spots will go to District residents before non-resident students. Bussing is available for all students who are District residents. Please share this information with any families you know who have a child eligible for PreK this year. Please contact Rachel Anderson at (716) 795-3237 for any assistance in the registration process for students of all grade levels.

    Moving Up Day for Pratt Elementary will take place on Friday, June 21, 2024, which will be the last day of school for elementary students. More information regarding the specific details of the event will be shared as we get closer to the end of the school year. The last day of school for the 7-12 students will be on Thursday, June 13, 2024. Jr.-Sr. High students are expected to return to school to take their Regents exams during the last few weeks of June. The official dates and times for students to report will be forthcoming. The end of school year dates are subject to change based on any official changes to the school calendar. If this occurs, then information will be sent home to families. Commencement this year will take place on Friday, June 28, 2024, at 7:00 pm to celebrate the successes of the Class of 2024. 

    Similar to last year, we will first be running our District-wide summer school program for students in grades PreK-8,  and second credit recovery for students in grades 9-12. The program will begin with students on Tuesday, July 2nd, and end on Thursday, August 1st. Students will be invited to participate in the program based on academic need with recommendation from their teachers. The PreK-8 program will include academic support in ELA and math and extracurricular enrichment opportunities in STEM experiences, P.E. and swim programming, and art activities.

    Please save the date for Wednesday, August 28, 2024, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm for the Grades 1-12 Welcome Back Night/Open House event. The PreK/K students will have a separate Welcome Back Day on Thursday, August, 29, 2024, from 1:00 to 2:30 pm. The first day of school for all students will be on Tuesday, September 3, 2024.

    As always, thank you for your continued support of this learning community and your dedication to our Barker students. 


    Sincerely,

    Mrs. Micaela M. Love
