Barrington Showcase Update

1081727_10200105979526770_1468262511_n
What a great day at the Barrington Showcase!
Here is a quick overview:
  • We raised over $250 at the Showcase (PTA Membership and Discount Card Pre-Sales efforts.)
  • We donated $30 worth of school supplies to BES teacher Fran Farmer who was voted “favorite teacher” by students attending the showcase.
  • We helped raise awareness that school supplies were not funded through the annual budget but rather have become the responsibility of teachers and individual parents and so the PTA is trying to partner with Staples Rewards and via the National PTA to help raise support and pass along new discounts this year (10% off to every PTA Member.)

All PTA Members are encouraged to show their support this fall by adding a leaf to our PTA Family Tree!

New Kindergarten Teachers; Mrs. Labbe and Mrs. Ruest received a monetary gift from the PTA to help with the cost of outfitting a new classroom. Often this come out of the teachers own pocket! Hopefully, this was a small blessing to their bank account.
