  • Video: Twas the Night Before Break


If you've ever wondered what happens in your local high school after the students and teachers have all left for winter break, the talented teens of Barrington High School's BHS-TV have provided a hilarious answer.

In "'Twas the Night Before Break," Barrington Unit District 220 Superintendent Tom Leonard is joined by Barrington High School Principal Steve McWilliams and Athletic Director Mike Obsuszt in reprising their BHS-TV roles as fictionalized versions of themselves with great comic timing.

While previous videos have chronicled chief protagonist Leonard's methodology for declaring a snow day and his search for his abducted beloved bobblehead, his latest online adventure casts him as the main instigator in a fight-to-the-finish gingerbread house contest.

Will Dr. Leonard's secret ingredient be enough to put him over the top this year?

Student directors James Owen and Ariana Baldassano's video can be seen at
