Rose Teacher Experience Auction

Rose Teacher Experience Auction has started! This year we have some of our most popular, sought after items like Principal for a Day and Front Row Seats to 5th Grade Recognition AND some new unique experiences! Who wouldn't want to be Field Day Grand Marshall or the 5th Grade Graduation Ambassador?

In addition to the auction experiences, we also have 9 Rose Wall Posters available. This is an opportunity to feature your child, or your child and a few friends, on inspirational posters that will be displayed throughout the school. Make sure to bid on your favorite teacher even if the experience might be a Pie in Their Face!!!

Get ready, get set, GO...

Auction ends at noon on March 15th.

Please note: some experiences are in person, some are virtual and some have the option of either. All sales are final, and will not be refunded if for some unforeseen circumstance the event can't take place or rescheduled. All proceeds will directly be used to help the school with materials required to safely stay open and continue PTO sponsored events.

Candidates Forum

Below is a link to the recording of the recent 2021 Candidates Forum. It provides great information about the Candidates who are running for the 4 open seats on the 220 Board. Voting day is April 6th!

Packs of Plenty (P.O.P.) Volunteers Needed

Barrington Children’s Charities P.O.P. program (formerly Blessings in a Backpack) is a non-profit organization that provides weekend food packs to food-insecure students in Barrington 220. Sign up via the link below to help pack food bags at Moretti’s Unique Events (2525 W Higgins Rd).

Once a month we pack over 2,800 bags and the district distributes them weekly to each school. Packing is indoors, but all sliding doors on both sides of building are open to encourage air flow and circulation. The volunteer list is limited to ensure we can provide a safe environment and can count on our volunteers to be there. No children allowed and we cannot accept walk up volunteers at this time. Please direct any questions to Anna Ouellette,
