Send-offs mark end of the school year for Barrington students

Staff members say good-bye to middle school students

Posted

Barrington Middle School teachers and administrators shared some special send-offs with students this week.

On Tuesday night, the district aired a video celebrating the eighth grade bridge ceremony. Normally the event is held in-person, but this year's bridge ceremony went virtual.

The video — it was streamed on the district's website, www.barringtonschools.org — included a welcome address by the school's principal, Dr. Andy Anderson, and a speech by eighth grade class president Maddox Godwin. The video also shared photos of each eighth-grader and some musical performances.

On Wednesday morning, Barrington Middle School teachers and staff members lined the sidewalks outside the school as they distributed students' locker contents. The teachers also held signs and cheered on the students as they passed by in their cars.

On Wednesday night, officials will hold a virtual high school orientation for all eighth-graders in the district.

Thursday is the final day of classes for Barrington students.
