Last Nights Free Ice Cream Social at Bol Park was a big hit and beat the heat! Over 200 scoops of ice cream were served to cool down Barron Park Residents!
Thanks to Karen and Amol Saxena for organizing the event and to the volunteers who scooped! The neighborhood posters were provided by CopyFactory! Lots of Fun and Socializing!

The Barron Park Elementary School PTA raises funds to support special programs within our school such as our Library, School Garden and Maker Studio; to host student educational assemblies; provide classroom supplies for our students, and most importantly, we issue field trip and after-school scholarships to students who cannot otherwise afford them. Barron Park Elementary School has approximately 30% socio-economically disadvantaged students, and we raise funds and issue scholarships to ensure all students at our school are able to access the same quality educational experiences and opportunities.
