The holidays are fast-approaching; it’s a time of year when we often pause to reflect on the past year and what we’re most thankful for. St. Barnabas School would like to express our gratitude for our outstanding school community. We are fortunate to have dedicated teachers, active and engaged parents and creative students who are excited to learn every day. All these factors combine to make our school a welcoming, encouraging place for all our students, families and staff.
Now that the school year is in full-swing, we can already look back at many inspiring events and activities like All-School Kindness Day, the Wax Museum for All Saints Day, the Holy Fire Retreat and Rally for junior high students, and numerous field trips and special assemblies on topics like kindness and bullying. Our teachers are constantly striving to make learning fun with activities like the first-grade surgeons, the Blessed Mother quilt, dressing up as historical figures to give reports and having real scientists come into the classroom for hands-on experiments.
Coming up for the Christmas season, our School Christmas Pageant will be December 16, and our preschoolers will hold their Christmas Pageant on December 20 at 9:30 am and 7 pm. Be sure to mark your calendars!
Through our website, school newsletter and eblasts, we will keep you updated as we look forward to the many more events to come this year. We are excited to see our students continue to learn and grow academically, spiritually and socially as the 2016-2017 academic year moves forward. It’s a great time to be a part of St. Barnabas School!
