Dear Parents,

We have had a busy week at Rose School! Students definitely feel that spring is in the air and are enjoying the fresh air and abundance of sunshine the past couple of days.

I am looking forward to the PTO event this weekend and hope to see many of our Rose parents there. Thank you for being such a strong support system for our Rose School community and for planning such a fun event!

News to Note:

  • Congratulations to Leena, 5th grade student, on receiving 2nd place in the DAR American History Essay Contest. She really embraced the topic and wrote a compelling essay that earned her this award. Leena was honored at the Youth Day Awards Ceremony on Sunday, February 20, 2022.

  • Barrington 220 is excited to embark on a strategic planning process called Framework 220, which will define the school district’s future vision and initiatives over the next three to five years. The district is very interested in casting a broad net to our school and community stakeholders to better understand our community’s expectations and priorities for Barrington 220. This is why we are launching the process by asking all of our parents and community members to complete this online questionnaire. As a parent and staff member in this district, your voice is critical. The more responses we receive the better we will understand the expectations of our community. Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. To learn more about how you can participate, visit:

  • COVID Updates: We have 1 positive student COVID case reported at Rose School this week and 2 students in quarantine. We have 0 positive staff cases to report. If you have additional questions about positive cases and quarantines, you can also check the district COVID Dashboard for up-to-date district COVID information.

  • Upcoming Dates:

    • March 4- Parents can view their children’s report cards on Infinite Campus, also the last day to order 2021-22 yearbooks

    • March 7- Speech Tournament for 4th and 5th grade students at Rose School

    • March 9- 4th grade Shows - We’re Making Music

  • Week of March 7-13- Parents, please be on the lookout for an email coming to you on March 7th with instructions on how to schedule your parent/teacher conferences on the website Meet the Teacher. Meet the Teacher scheduling will close on March 13th. Conferences will be held on the evenings of March 16 & 17, 2022.

Warm regards,

Heather Schumacher, Principal


Parents' Night Out

After months of preparations, Rose PTO is excited to host Viva Las Vegas, Parents' Night Out this Saturday, March 5th at 6:00 pm. Attendees will get a detailed email with a timeline and a map to get to the venue. PTO follows county guidelines and therefore will no longer require proof of vaccination. This year we are raising funds for grade level pod enhancements to promote SEL, the area that students have been most affected by as a result of the pandemic. If you can't attend, you can still donate and participate! Pre-sell RAFFLE TICKETS are available now thru Friday, March 4th, 5:00 pm through the link below. You do not have to attend to participate. The winner will receive a beautiful bracelet and necklace worth over $1200 and donated by M. J. Miller Jewelers Barrington.

In addition, we have an ONLINE SILENT AUCTION open to all Rose families, alumnus and local community. The link below will give you a preview of all the amazing items we have. The auction will be live Thursday, March 3rd at 9:00 am and close on March 5th at 10:00 pm. Preview auction at the link below.
