Upcoming Events

  • Extended Day:  Yesterday, I sent an email out with information about the PTO’s Extended Day.  There are classes still available. You would go to the PTO store to register for a class.  Click here to go to the store.  Registration for classes is open until Thursday, February 13 at 10:00 pm. 

  • Kindergarten Registration:  We are accepting kindergarten registrations at the school this week each day from 9:00-2:00.  Children who will be five years old as of September 1, 2020, are eligible to register for kindergarten.  Registration information may be found here.  If your child is in the Barrington Public Schools preschool or your child receives services through the Barrington Public Schools, you still need to register your child for kindergarten.

  • Second Grade Family Book Club:  For those of you who signed up for this, this is tomorrow.  Please send a note with your child confirming that your child is staying for the Book Club.  Book Club will take place in the cafeteria.

  • No School:  Please remember, there is no school for children on February 17 and 18.

  • First Grade Family Book Club:  This Book Club is coming up soon for first grade families.  Mark your calendars for March 4 from 2:35-3:20. The book being discussed is A Bike Like Sergio’s.  You may register here for the book club.

  • Town Meeting:  Our next Town Meeting, being hosted by Mrs. Piette’s class, is on March 3 at 1:40 in the afternoon.

  • Dental Screening:  Our annual dental screenings are coming up on March 16.  If your child sees a dentist on a regular basis, they will not need to be screened.  However, everyone must complete this dental form.  If the form is not filled out, your child will be screened by our dentist.

Other Bits of Information

  • Library Newsletter:  Mrs. Greene has put together her monthly newsletter for you.  You may read it here.  There is a lot of information about what our students do while in (and out of) the library.
