Dear Parents,

Welcome to Barton Hills Elementary School!

It is our goal that each child will learn, grow, and develop every day at Barton Hills.  Our desire is to provide academic excellence in a warm and supportive school climate.   We want each parent to feel that “My child is having a great year at Barton Hills”.

Strong parental and community support enhances the quality of education at Barton Hills.  Please come to school, meet us, talk to us, join the PTA, and volunteer your time and energy.  Let’s work together!  We know that your involvement, combined with the efforts of our outstanding faculty, will make this school year a rich and rewarding experience for your child.  Please call us if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions.

Would you like to access all of your students’ educational information in one place?  Then you will want to access the Parent Cloud.  You will be able to access Curriculum, Grades and Assignments and Lunch Menu, to name just a few options that are now available through the Parent Cloud.  The Parent Cloud serves as the primary resource for all of the services provided online to our parents. This site gives parents direct access into their child’s classroom information, registration to your child’s campus information, district-wide information and links to other often used services.
