    May 31, 2017

    We are in our final full week of school and the 2016-17 school year will come to a close on May 31st.  In this exciting time there are numerous activities happening here at NBS. Most recently, there was a tree dedicated to Ms. Paulus for her retirement.  The above picture was taken that day to commemorate the ceremony.  Thank you PTO for purchasing this tree for Ms. Paulus.  The 5th graders have a lot of activities to look forward to and just took their annual trip to Camp Duncan.  They will also attend their district-wide track meet and participate in recognition on the last day of school.  There are many more activities to look forward to as a school so please stay in contact with your child's teacher and the school calendar.  
    As we head into the summer I want to thank everyone for their commitment to your child and their education.  It takes a home/school partnership to make the most of the educational process.  I hope each and every one of you have a fantastic summer break! Enjoy your time away, but please remember to read with your children throughout the summer as this will benefit them in the upcoming school year.  Thank you again.  The North Barrington Family continues to grow and thrive as the best place for children in the state.

     Field Day
     Friday May 26, 2017 is field day.  We are crossing out fingers for great weather but in the event that we need to postpone the event we have a rain date of May 30, 2017.  On this day the students will be engaged in numerous activities outside.  Please make sure that you apply sunscreen and bug repellent in advance.  From 12:00-1:20 we will have our normal lunch schedule.  The additional 40 minutes that students have will be spent in their class/pod signing yearbooks.  It is going to be a great day and I look forward to having all of the parents that have volunteered here with us to make it awesome.  Don't forget that there is parking off of Miller Road and East of the building in the grass.

    Students will take home iPads over the summer.  Students going to Summer School in Summer 2017 may need iPads for summer classes. If parents do not wish to have iPads at home over the summer, please fill out this online form or contact your teacher, the school office and/or library by Thursday, May 25, 2017. The Barrington 220 Technology Department will pick up stored (and labelled) iPads (along with charging plug and charging cable) and store them for the summer.

    Current Kindergarten students will get a 1:1 iPad at the beginning of Grade 1.
