BARBARA ROSE PTO
WHETHER YOU WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER ONE DAY OR ALL YEAR LONG
WE HAVE A PLACE FOR YOU!
SEE WHAT FUN WE HAD LAST YEAR:
Back to School Meet & Greet - The first event to kick off the new school year where families can meet each other and Principal Schumacher while enjoying some fun activities and food.
Multicultural Night - An amazing night celebrating Barbara Rose’s diverse culture. 20 countries were represented with booths to taste food, see artifacts and clothing from around the world. A talent show showcased fashion, dance and music from several different countries.
Fall and Spring Book Fair - We raised over $5000 and provided books to our teachers for their classroom.
Rose 20th Anniversary Gala - All involved planned a great night of food, dancing, silent and live auctions. Over $100,000 was raised from the event as well as other fundraising sources associated with the event. We raised these funds to replace a large piece of our playground that students can now enjoy for many years to come.
Rose Goes Out - The community provided funds back to our school just for shopping at their stores. The ladies enjoyed snacks while shopping at Evereve. Families enjoyed all the fun activities at Main Event.
Tasty Tuesdays - The second Tuesday of every month the kids were given the opportunity to try fruits and vegetables prepared for them during lunch hour.
Bus Driver Appreciation - A special afternoon at school to thank our bus drivers for taking good care of our kiddos! The Stingray Singers provided musical entertainment and each driver left with a small token of our appreciation.
5th grade Father/Son and Mother/Daughter Events - A special time to connect parent to child as they prepare to leave elementary school and head off to middle school.
Movie Nights - Kids dressed in their jammies and brought sleeping bags and pillows to watch a movie in the gym. Popcorn and other concessions were sold.
PTO REACH - GIves opportunities to reach out to the community through Blessings in a Backpack every Thursday and Barrington Giving Day in December.
Teacher Appreciation Week - The first week in May is a time to tangibly show our appreciation to all our wonderful teachers. We offered the teachers a special breakfast and lunch, massages, flowers, memory book and many other surprises.
Ice Cream Social - This fun end of the year event coincides with Spring Book Fair. A DJ played dance music while families enjoyed ice cream and fruit bars. A face painter added to the festivities.
Stingray Day/Field Day- Nearly 80 parent volunteers came to school to help our kids celebrate the end of the year with various game stations put together by our teachers. Everyone enjoys this fun filled day!
