Backpack Express

Good morning,

This week’s Backpack Express is ready for you. Please make sure you read this so you know what’s going on at our school.

  • Author Visit:  We are fortunate to have author/illustrator Juana Martinez-Neal visiting with our students on March 31, 2023.  With visits from authors, there’s usually an opportunity for the author to sign a copy of their book for you and your child.  Information on how this can happen may be found here.

  • Reading Week:  Sowams will be celebrating Reading Week the week of April 3, 2023.  Our faculty, staff, and parent volunteers have come up with an exciting plan with various activities throughout the week.  To see what is planned for each day, click here for the list of activities.

  • Yearbook:  The Sowams School Yearbook is now on sale.  Orders are taken online only.  Information about ordering a yearbook may be found here.  Orders will be accepted until April 24, 2023.  This year’s yearbook costs $21.

  • Yearbook Boosters:  Do you want to put a message to your child and/or faculty/staff member in the yearbook?  If so, you will want to purchase a Booster for the yearbook.  Information on boosters may be found here.  Boosters will be accepted until April 6, 2023.

  • Upcoming No School Days:  April vacation will be here before we know it.  School will not be in session from April 7-April 16, 2023.  We will come back on Monday, April 17, 2023.

  • Community Notices:  There are two Barrington High School community notices:  After Prom Silent Auction and Homework Help.

To those of you celebrating Ramadan, Ramadan Kareem.

Have a wonderful day and weekend.
