The barbershop environment inside of the school is made up just like that of babershops in the outside world.

It consist of a barber chair, waiting area, clippers, brushes, capes and all of the other necessities needed to run a well organized and functional barber shop.

Students are able to come in sit down and wait for one of their peers to have their hair cut while chatting with their principal or flipping through a book.

Newton brought this idea to life in hopes of bonding more with students on a casual level while also building up their self esteem.

According to the school website, Warner Elementary has received the National Green Ribbon Award for their work in recycling, saving energy, saving water and growing their own food.
