🪁BPS YEAR END ACTIVITIES:
As the school year winds down, students across the District are enjoying outdoor field day activities.
Last week, Barrington Middle School's Lime Cluster had fun sack racing, playing Capture the Flag, and more! Barrington's four elementary schools also participated in exciting year end field day traditions, with each school hosting outdoor activities for students this week.

📖BMS STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN PRIMROSE HILL SCHOOL READING WEEK:
This week, a long-standing tradition returned to Barrington Public Schools: Barrington Middle School students reading to Primrose Hill School students during their Reading Week!
On Tuesday, June 6, BMS students visited Primrose and read with students in five different classrooms ranging from Pre-K to Grade 3.
Prior to Reading Week, middle schoolers were selected to join the in-District fieldtrip after reading aloud a few pages of a picture book on FlipGrid. BMS students say their favorite things about participating in Reading Week at Primrose Hill School include "meeting all of the kids and getting to read to them" and "getting to see [their] old teachers".
Thank you to Mrs. Roy and Ms. O'Kane for bringing this very special tradition back to BPS - and to all students and teachers whose participation made this possible. What a great way to kick off the last few weeks of the 2022-2023 school year!
🎓BHS SENIOR SCHOOL WALK:
Students and staff in the District showed out to congratulate the Barrington High School Class of 2023 during the first annual senior school walk!
Dressed in their graduation regalia, BHS seniors visited Primrose Hill Elementary School, Nayatt School, Sowams School, Hampden Meadows Elementary School, and Barrington Middle School and walked through each school building to excited applause and cheers from students lining the hallways. Seniors stopped often to high-five elementary and middle school students and hug their former teachers.
What a fantastic send off for Barrington's next graduating class as they head into graduation weekend.
The graduation ceremony for the Class of 2023 is scheduled for 2:00 PM on Victory Field. Pending inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved into the large gymnasium with additional overflow seating (livestreaming the ceremony) in the auditorium.
