Parent Literacy Survey

Barrington 220 follows a curriculum review cycle that includes a thorough analysis of our subject areas of learning. This year, we are reviewing our elementary (K-5) literacy curriculum and instruction. Literacy includes phonics, word study, reading, writing, listening, and speaking. We are seeking parent and caregiver feedback, and appreciate your thoughtful answers to our questions linked in the following survey:

Input Survey for Elementary Literacy

If you have more than one child in our elementary schools, please feel free to generalize for all of your children in one survey OR complete the survey again for each of your children with responses pertaining to each child.

Thank you for your time and feedback. The window for this survey is September 22nd - October 3rd.

Prairie Garden

We want to give a big thank you to former Hough student and Eagle Scout, Nick Rolain, for all of his hard work over the past several months to design a prairie garden for our small playground. He had lots of helpers who made a big impact, as well. We are excited to watch the garden grow and bloom!


We continue to enjoy an abundance of community during P.E., at lunch and in the classroom.
