Back-to-School Night Presentation

We had a fantastic turnout on Tuesday at our Back-to-School Night. Our continued partnership as a school community is a primary factor that helps lead to our students’ success. I’ve attached a link to the presentation I shared for those that were not able to attend or those that would like to review in more detail. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Hough Choir will be open to all 4th and 5th-grade students this fall! If your student is interested in joining, please fill out this form. The first rehearsal will be on Thursday, October 13th at 2:45 pm in the music/art room. Ms. Popovich will be sending out more information to 4th and 5th-grade parents. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Popovich at kpopovich@barrington220.org.


As our Barrington community continues to embrace our Belonging campaign, I want to share some of the wonderful examples of belonging at Hough Street. Each week I will include a couple of Hough pictures highlighting #WeBelong220. Please join me in celebrating our amazing students and staff!

Student iPad Swap Coming Up!

On September 19, Hough students’ iPads will be given a refresh!

All 1st thru 5th-grade students’ devices will be swapped for a new 9th Generation iPad; along with a new Logitech Crayon, and a new charging block and cable.

It’s extra important that students bring their current iPads and all of their accessories: case, Logitech Crayon, charging brick, and cable on the day of our Swap.

*Kindergarten will NOT participate. They were issued Gen 9 iPads during the first week of school.*

**First grade will not be required to turn in a Logitech crayon, because they did not receive one last year.**

If you have any questions regarding the iPad swap, please direct them to Hough’s LTA, Mrs. Grosspietsch at mgrosspietsch@barrington220.org.
