logoptaEvery school year parents are asked to join the Barrington ECLC/BES PTA.  Parent participation is a big part of what makes Barrington such a great school, and help us pay for crucial enrichment activities that the Barrington School District is not able to provide. The PTA pays for new books, field trip bus fees, recess equipment, school-wide events, funds for new teachers to supply their classrooms, teacher appreciation events, needed items like a new SMART board, an Art room rug and so much more.

Membership in our local PTA demonstrates the importance you place on educating all children, especially your own.  Everyone including parents, educators, students, and members of the community at large who actively support their schools are invited to join our not-for-profit association, the largest child advocacy association in the world.

Some Quick Facts:
