Backpack Express

Good afternoon,

This week’s Backpack Express is ready for you to enjoy:

  • Vision Screenings:  As required by the State, our school, in conjunction with the local Lions Club, will be having our annual vision screenings next Wednesday, November 16, 2022.  If your child wears glasses, please make sure they are brought to school.  If your child does not “pass” the screening, Mrs. Mungovan will send a referral letter home to you.

  • Class Basket Raffle:  As a reminder, tickets and cash/checks for the class basket raffle should be returned to school by November 16, 2022. The classroom that sells the most tickets by this date will win a class prize to be determined by the teacher! If you need more tickets, please contact the school ( Thanks to the Room Parents, you can visit this link to see photos and detailed descriptions of the class baskets! Basket winners will be selected and contacted on November 21, 2022. Thank you for your support!

  • Opportunities:  Do you know someone looking for part time or full time work? Barrington schools continue to look for lunch monitors, recess monitors, daily substitute teachers (must have a college degree), and building interns (must be a certified elementary teacher).  If you are interested, or know someone who is, please visit to apply.   

  • No School:  Just a reminder, there is no school on Friday, November 11, 2022, in honor of Veterans Day.

  • Picture Retake Day:  We will have our picture retake day on December 2, 2022.  If your child already had a picture taken and you would like it taken again, you will need to send back to school with your child the package that your purchased.  If your child was not in school on the original day, your child’s picture will be taken.  If you need to purchase a picture package, please go to

Enjoy the rest of the day and week.
