Staff Spotlight !

Mr.  Barron

Our own Mr. Barron has been a teacher for 21 years.  He brings a love of music to all the kids and families at Agnor-Hurt from playing the piano or ukulele in the hallways to the wonderful music concerts we get to enjoy throughout the year. Here are some things you many not know about Mr. Barron. He enjoys Bonefish Grill and Chipotle and snacking on almonds and pistachios. His favorite color is purple and he loves coffee!  Back in the 80’s, Mr. Barron says he had long hair past his shoulders!

Redistricting Notes

The Redistricting Advisory Committee has one meeting left before they present their recommendation to the School Board.  That meeting will be Monday, November 27, 6:00-8:00pm in the Agnor-Hurt library.  Parents are encouraged to attend, although we cannot speak at this meeting.

ACPS has created a survey for community members to provide some input, please go to the ACPS website for a link to this survey.  You will also find notes from all of the Redistricting Committee meetings to date and details on the three scenarios that are currently under discussion.  The deadline for completing the survey is Friday, November 17 at 11:59pm.

Community members are also welcome to write to the School Board with their thoughts on the redistricting process ( )

Books and Burritos

Save the date…  Sunday, December 3.

Do some holiday shopping, treat your family to a Chipotle dinner, and help the school all in one shebang!  Please join us on Sunday, December 3 for Books and Burritos…  All day, you can shop at Barnes & Noble (at Barracks’ Road) and they will donate a percentage of your sale to the school.  (You must mention this to the cashier when you pay.)

Then, between 5 and 9pm, if you purchase food from Chipotle, they will donate a percentage of that sale to the school!  (Again, mention it to the cashier.)

You can shop the Barnes & Noble book fair online AND in-store for an additional 5 days!  Between December 4-8, if you shop online, use the Bookfair ID 12150025.  In store, just let the cashier know that you want your purchases to count toward Agnor-Hurt’s book fair.

We are looking for volunteers to help wrap gifts, share information at our wish list table, and support children at the art and craft table at our Barnes & Noble Book Fair from 2-6 p.m.  To volunteer, please sign up here.  If you have questions, you can contact the PTO at
