School Supplies


The PTO offers a "Smart Supplies" program, which is designed to reduce both the cost and waste at our school. We purchase supplies for ALL of the classrooms in bulk and ensure that classrooms are adequately stocked before the school year begins (and throughout the year). We work with teachers to make sure we purchase high quality supplies that will last. We provide teachers with "class sets" of supplies, so that every student has the correct supplies on "day one" of the new school year. We work with a variety of local and national vendors to get the highest quality supplies, while negotiating pricing and discounts. This is NOT a fundraiser for the school or for the PTO. It is simply a service to our parents. NEW FAMILIES to our school can always purchase supplies from the PTO during the year.

To order supplies ONLINE for the 2016-17 school year, Log into your Infinite Campus Account at www.barrington220.org and select Pay School/Lunch fees, then select PTO items.  For more detailed instructions click here.

Supply Lists for self purchase:  Kindergarten   First Grade  CI-First Grade Second Grade  Third Grade  Fourth Grade  Fifth Grade
