BARRINGTON – The Barrington Chinese Immersion Council received its 501c3 designation just a few weeks ago and members are anxious to further support the Bridge to Chinese Program in Barrington Community Unit School District 220.

Knowing the school district only has so many resources it can designate to the Chinese program, a group of parents with children involved in the program began talking roughly three years ago about what they could do to support the program.

How the council does that, is still to be determined. It has been discussed that the council would help with cultural events for the students and the community at large, and generally just supplement and expand on whatever the school district can supply.

“Obviously, the school district has limited funds, so our goal, now that we have a 501c3, is to really kick our fundraising into gear and raise some money,” Windon said.
