Barron Park Elementary

For the 2022-23 school year, donations from parents and community members will allow PiE to provide $95,539 for use at Barron Park Elementary. These generous gifts to PiE will fund:

  • General classroom aide time, helping to provide seven hours of vital classroom aide time weekly. Aides are an important part of the classroom experience at Barron Park because they let teachers work with small groups or individuals, helping to differentiate instruction that benefits all our children
  • All of the Spectra Art teachers allowing all students to grow in creativity and confidence from regular art instruction benefitting the whole child
  • Additional hours for the Maker Space TOSA (teacher on special assignment), who leads hands-on supplemental scientific, creative and technological projects with all students in the school
  • School-based counseling that helps all staff maximize social and emotional learning for all children
  • Through a grant to the district, PiE also helps fund the music and dance programs for the elementary schools

Your Barron Park PiE Representatives for 2022-23 are Elizabeth Gardner, Agnes Kalinowski, Leah Russin, and Athar Shadmani. Questions about PiE? Email
