December 8, 2014--Mr. Park's Big Kiss!

December 8, 2014--Mr. Park's Big Kiss! The students of Barnard Elementary School gathered in the wee hours Monday morning to witness their principal, Eddie Park, make good on his promise to kiss a horse if they raised $20,000 during this year's PTA jog-a-thon fundraiser. Not only was the goal met, but it was exceeded by $12,000. With signs depicting words of encouragement for their brave principal, like "Smooches!", "Kiss that horse!", "Pucker Up, Mr. Park", and "$32K is A-OK!", and clasping big, red lips on a stick, the kids were delighted to see him get down to business. The kiss was everything expected from a principal and his equine counterpart: sloppy, wet, and a wee bit corny. After the deed was done, Mr. Park reassured the students that he isn't merely a one-kiss principal. He committed to doing it again next year with the 2015 Chinese Zodiac animal, the goat; should the goal be met again. Given the students' enthusiasm, it looks like Mr. Park is going to have an annual date with all 12 Zodiac animals in the years to come.

Jog-A-Thon

Jog-A-Thon On Wednesday, November 19, Barnard's Rockin' The Horse Jog-a-thon took place on the field. Students and staff not only ran laps but were able to visit many stations representing gymnastics, dance, hula-hoop, biking, skating and more. The children had a wonderful time. A big thank you goes out to the Barnard PTA, staff, parents and students; especially Coach MJ. Love Zubiller did an outstanding job organizing this fantastic event.
