Important Information

Prairie PTO Welcomes You!

  • Logo Parents, teachers and administrators join together through the PTO for the benefit of BMS Prairie students. The PTO provides academic programming, educational materials, and social activities for students. The PTO also coordinates programs for parents and provides supplemental materials for teachers. The PTO is funded through dues and a single fundraiser, the No Stress Fundraiser.

    Our Mission 

    The purpose of the PTO of Barrington Middle School Prairie Campus is to work in the best interest of children in the school, home and community.  We strive to bring into closer relationship the home and school, and to promote understanding and cooperation between parents and teachers.  We initiate and encourage ideas and activities which are in the interest of BMS Prairie. We promote unity with Barrington 220 Middle Schools by working toward common goals and sponsoring joint activities which involve parents, staff and students at both schools.

No Stress Fundraiser

  • This year, the No Stress Fundraiser will continue to support the Library Media Center Renovation. This project will involve on going purchases of new furnishings in this student area to allow for small group collaboration and enhance the learning environment. Our initial installation completed over Spring Break 2017. We continue to achieve this goal and are looking for your assistance in raising the remaining $10,000 commitment. The fundraiser is truly no stress to you and greatly benefits our kids, teachers and school. Your contribution in any amount is appreciated. To help us meet our goal during the 2017-2018 school year, please click here to make a donation or select a fundraising amount from the drop down menu. As parents, we are fortunate to have our children attend a great school like Prairie. In the past, the partnership of the PTO and the administration has allowed our children such benefits as a new PA/Audio system, (7) new water refill stations, school reading books, social events and guest speakers. We invite you to contribute your desired amount toward this fundraiser and help make a difference. We thank you in advance for your support.
