• Families of Dr. Charles Barnum Elementary School,
    Thank you for sharing your children with us.  We are having such a wonderful year and it will continue to get better and better.  So far we have been recognized as a Blue Ribbon School, watched our talented students sing and play instruments at the winter concert, enjoyed our Community Meetings hosted by our grade 5 students each month, had an exceptional turn out for our summer reading challenge and our winter reading challenge.   CMT and SBAC testing took place in March, April and May.   Thank you for taking the parent survey.  The survey data is shared with staff and lets us know how we are doing.
    We welcome you to our school.  If you have time to give, we are always looking for mentors.  If you or someone you know is  interested in working with one child and providing him or her with an opportunity to talk, listen, and learn contact Mrs. Martino or email me at dduley@groton.k12.ct.us.  We also have many volunteer opportunities. Field Day is  May 26.  Field trips are planned by many classes.  Popcorn Fridays are a favorite at Charles Barnum and sponsored by our PTO.  However, we need volunteers to help,  Please contact Mrs. Daniels our community coordinator to learn how you can help.   
    If you have a question, a concern, or a suggestion, you can reach me by calling 860-449-5640 or contact me through my email dduley@groton.k12.ct.us
