Happy Summer, Parents!
First, let’s give a WAHOO for the 390+ Barrington Parents are following our page, not to mention the 455 Facebook page likes we are up to so far!
I have to take a moment to say “Thank you” for your support on our website and social media platform. We appreciate that you are following along with us as we move into the new year, school year that is!
I know, I know…the website needs work! A lot of work.
The content isn’t current, rarely updated, and not always very helpful.
I totally hear you and couldn’t agree more.
So, here is what we are going to do to fix that!
You may have noticed that the visual aspect of the site has been updated a bit – we hope you like it! We are toying around with functionality of the (free) WordPress system we are using to manage our website. In other words, please kindly bear with us as we go forth (untrained) and attempt to keep our page modern and useful. If anyone out there wants to cross their fingers for us, we’d appreciate that!
We are actively working on updating all the fields and menus with current content and up-to-date forms as well as publishing our meeting minutes and budget, each month.
It is our goal to provide our members with as much information as possible so that they know just how important their input is on how we run the organization. That begins with transparency — whether that be through updating the site, providing current forms, discussing current education events, or publishing the budget and meeting minutes.
We hope you take a moment to look around and come back often to see what else we are working on.
There are lots of wonderful things coming up this year and we look forward to serving our community for another year!
