We had a great first week!
On Tuesday we distributed new ID Cards and lanyards, introduced the new food service program, and highlighted a few procedural adjustments for the year. Students in grades 9-12 will be asked to scan on and off the bus each day using their ID Card and school-issued lanyard. Students will also be required to scan their ID Card when entering BHS and wear the school-issued ID/lanyard throughout the school day.
Due to weather, we rescheduled our Building Community assembly to this afternoon. Students moved to the stadium for an all school assembly. During the assembly, we highlighted upcoming activities and events, introduced teams captains and student leadership, and celebrated our interconnectivity. Principal McWilliams gave a motivational message highlighting #WEAREBARRINGTON.
We hope to see you tonight for our “Stars under the Stars” event. Barrington 220 is excited to partner with the Barrington 220 Educational Foundation to celebrate the start of the 2019-20 school year with a back to school movie night at BHS! Barrington 220: To Infinity and Beyond! will feature a showing of "Toy Story" on the big screen at Barrington Community Stadium. Admission is FREE and refreshments will be available for purchase. The event takes place tonight. The movie will begin at 8:30 pm, after the Red and White Scrimmage. All families are welcome. Feel free to bring chairs, sleeping bags, or blankets.
