The Barton Elementary Chapter of the Pretty Brown Girls ended their 2022-2023 celebration with Ms. Thomas, Barton's School Culture Facilitator, inspiring each young lady to be comfortable with the brown skin that they are in. The program began with 24 young ladies in grades 2-5 but ended with 17 girls. Pretty Brown Girls taught them how to express themselves comfortably in front of their peers. Parent participation was evident as mothers joined their daughters at the end of year celebration.
