We welcome parent involvement at Sarah Dyer Barnes Elementary School. Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education generally achieve higher grades, attend school more regularly, do their homework and exhibit more positive behaviors. Please visit the school office any time and stay in touch with your student's teachers – see the Staff Directory for phone numbers and e-mail addresses.
