Homecoming 2021

The theme for BHS Homecoming 2021 is Around the WorldOur goal for Homecoming 2021 will be to double up the homecoming class celebrations. We will be encouraging the classes ending in 0, 5, AND 1, 6 to come home to Barrington for a wonderful reunion of our school years past. It will be time well spent and certainly a time where we could use a few laughs and some treasured companionship. The 2021 Homecoming Parade will have the Classes of 1970 and 1971 as the parade grand marshals, along with our valued BHSAA leaders, Mr. Don Thompson and Jim Potter.
