superintendent update: june 4, 2024

June 4, 2024

May was a fast-paced month for Barrington Public Schools, filled with many events, activities, and accomplishments! National and state assessments, achievement celebrations, and a host of instructional and extracurricular successes kept our community very busy in May.

As we prepare for the final weeks of the school year, I would like to share with you some noteworthy accomplishments that represent our district’s commitment to inclusive and immersive teaching, learning, and leading. 

School Construction Project Update

Last week, the Rhode Island Council on Elementary and Secondary Education (RI CESE) voted to approve Barrington’s school building project. This is a significant milestone because it means funding for the renovation and construction of four like-new schools has officially been secured from the State. It also allows the Barrington School Building Committee and the Committee’s team of architects and project managers to continue working toward Stage III of the Rhode Island Department of Education’s (RIDE) Necessity of School Construction application. Visit the project’s website to learn more. Additional updates are also provided during bi-weekly meetings of the Barrington School Committee and monthly meetings of the Barrington School Building Committee. 

June is a short month, but it is perhaps the busiest in our school calendar. As we enter the final stretch of another impressive school year, the next few weeks are sure to be filled with feelings of excitement and anticipation. Graduation for the Class of 2024 is just a few days away and, with our students as next-generation leaders, there is a bright and promising future. Our whole community has much to celebrate this school year! These collective achievements are made possible by our students who commit to their learning, our educators who empower our students to excel, and our community members whose partnerships enable a world of possibilities. I look forward to celebrating our students and educators in the days and weeks ahead, and thank you for your continued support of our Barrington Public Schools.  

Thank you,

Mike Messore
