Library Book Dedication

We want all of our students to feel included and represented at school. To honor the special connection between language and family, we are starting a World Languages Collection. We are asking for donations of your favorite picture books in any language(s) you speak. You are the experts in your home languages and literatures, and we appreciate your support as we build this new collection. 
You can also purchase and dedicate a book from the Library's Wish List. Each book will receive a commemorative nameplate in the front to share who the book is dedicated to and who donated the book. Once you select a book, please follow these directions to make sure we know who to dedicate the book to and who to thank:
Please keep the ‘Send as a gift’ box checked in your cart. 

Then click "Proceed to checkout (# items)"

The next screen will display "Choose Gift Options" you can write the following in the "Gift message" box:

“Title of book” for Name of (grand)child. Write a quick message to the child and include "Dedicated by [your name]" so we know who to thank!

Make sure to pick the Barnesville School as the addressee. 

Schedule of Events

The Tuesday before Thanksgiving, grandparents and special grandfriends of students are invited to join their loved ones for a very special school day at Barnesville School of Arts & Sciences. This beloved Barnesville tradition includes a breakfast reception and student performances, after which guests attend classes to get a glimpse of the mission of joy, support, and excellence thriving here. Each family is invited to the library to have their photograph taken so they have a memento from the day. And then students are released for a noon dismissal to enjoy the remainder of their day with family.
A gift to the Barnesville School Fund is the most important donation we ask of all Barnesville School community members. Your PARTICIPATION, at any level, is a MEANINGFUL contribution to the school. Please join the 100% of our teachers who give to the Barnesville School Fund every year.
