Backpack Express

Good afternoon,

For your reading pleasure, here’s this week’s Backpack Express:

  • Silent Auction:  Online Auction ends Friday at 3pm! Be sure to place your bids before the auction closes.  Check out what’s available at: 

  • Parent Conferences:  Many of you will have your parent teacher conference tomorrow.  This is a time for you to find out how your child is doing while in school.  Information about academics and social emotional learning will be shared with you during your conference.  This is a no school day for our students.

  • Progress Reports:  Next Friday, your child’s first trimester progress report will be available for you.  I sent out information about the progress report earlier this week.  The progress reports tell you how your child is performing based upon what has been taught.  Here are the narratives that explain what your child is being scored on for the first trimester:  Kindergarten, Grade 1, Grade 2, Grade 3.

  • Roller Skating/Roller Blading Party:  Reminder, tonight the PTO is sponsoring a roller skating/roller blading at US Skates.  Information may be found here.  

  • Barrington Education Foundation:  Each year, the BEF sponsors a fundraiser directed at thanking the faculty and staff of our schools in the district.  More information may be found here about participating in this.

  • Holiday Information:  Our district has put together a monthly slideshow which talks about the various holidays and special days during a month.  The December information may be found here.  

  • Community Notice:  Barrington High School’s FBLA club is having a Holiday Fair.  Information may be found here.  

Have a great day.
