Rose Goes Out to Georgio's Pizza

Rose Goes Out is back, with a special from our local South Barrington business, Georgio's Pizza. Georgio's has been kind enough to donate 20% to Rose Elementary for orders between September 1st-4th, on carryout, dine-in or delivery. Please mention Rose during those dates when placing your orders. A yummy, easy pizza dinner after eLearning sounds like a perfect plan!

Specials Showcase - Every Morning 8-8:25 am

Rose School's Specials Showcase is off to a great start! Almost 300 families toured the school with Mrs. Schumacher, assisted by Rosie Ray. Rose School staff welcomed the students to the first day of school. Over 100 families have engaged in each of our subsequent Special Showcase events. While this is an optional event, we encourage all students to participate and strengthen our K-5 Rose community. Events are planned by the specials team, but many other Rose staff will be spotlighted. The Showcase schedule will be shared via email each Friday with the Zoom link at the top of the schedule.

Library Book Return & Checkout

Thank you to those who returned library items. It's time for any remaining library books to be returned! Place items on the yellow cart by the tables outside during material pick-up. Following grade level material distribution, the cart will be moved into the foyer. Books and items from any Barrington 220 school can be returned to Rose. There is no need to include your child's name. Notes will be sent home listing books that have yet to be returned.


At this time, library book checkout is not available. The elementary Teacher Librarian team is finalizing plans to ensure safe, efficient, and equitable library check out. Once procedures are in place, we will begin with checkout for grades 3-5. In the meantime, please use Sora, Barrington 220's digital book portal. There are thousands of titles available, each selected by a Barrington Teacher Librarian. Contact Ms. Meiser for book recommendations and questions.

Zoom Links

To ensure security and protect the privacy of Rose School students, Zoom links should never be shared on social media or any location accessible to the public.

Tech Support

Rose School's superstar LTA, Mrs. Kolb, has been busy the past few weeks preparing, updating, and delivering devices, helping teachers, students, and parents prepare for Distance Learning, and conducting lots of troubleshooting! Thank you for your patience as she works diligently to assist both students and teachers. Bookmark her helpful Parent Tech Tips for Distance Learning and consider printing out the Master Student Logins sheet for reference. Keep iPad iOS software up to date by opening Settings then clicking on Software Update. An update will take several minutes, so plan ahead!
