The effort to plan and build a computer classroom at the secondary school passed its first milestone last week when the Sinaloa School System’s Quality Schools Program matched the $25,000 pesos raised by Barron Schools and Friends of Barron. This was a joint effort between the FOB Program and the Community of Barron. Barron hosted a Valentine’s Day Dance and a raffle to raise $11,000 pesos and FOB used the funds raised at the Super Bowl Sunday 50/50 Draw as well as a portion of the Silent Auction proceeds to push them over the goal line. Plans for the new classroom have already been provided and efforts to secure a construction bid are underway. The next round of funding for the project will begin in the fall of 2010.
