Arts Night: Our annual Arts Night is coming up on April 2 from 6:00-7:30. This is a fun, family night where you can see various art projects our students have made this year along with participating in different art projects. But, Mrs. Gusetti needs help to make this night successful. Volunteers are needed to help set up, to run the stations that night, and to assist with clean up. If you are able to volunteer, there will be a meeting on February 5 at 10:00am at Sowams. If you cannot make the meeting but would like to volunteer, please email Mrs. Gusetti at email@example.com. Information can be found here.

The kindergarten book club is March 4 and information about the book and signing up may be found here. Grade three’s book club is March 15 and information may be found here.

Kindergarten Registration: Do you have a child turning five years old as of September 1, 2019? Do you know someone in Barrington who has a child turning five years old as of September 1, 2019? If so, this child may be registered to enter kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year. During the week of February 11, Barrington will have kindergarten registration at Sowams, Primrose Hill, and Nayatt schools. Families register their child at their neighborhood school. You should bring with you your child’s original birth certificate or a passport, proof of residency, and immunization records. When you arrive, you will have paperwork to complete. More information, including the registration packet if you wish to fill out the forms before coming, may be here.
No School Day: There is no school for students on February 5, 2019. There is a special election in Barrington on this day; therefore, the district will have professional development for teachers. Please note: There is school on February 4, 2019. Click here for the most up-to-date school calendar.
