St. Barnabas School Welcomes You

Welcome to St. Barnabas School.  For many of you, this time of the year brings familiar feelings of anticipation and excitement of a new school year.  But for some others, this will be your first taste of the St. Barnabas experience...filled with moments you will take with you in years to come.  We know our veteran families will be welcoming and helpful to those less acquainted with the ways and rigors of the St. Barnabas system.  We thank all who do so with patience and diligence.

Our happy news is that our news principal, Mrs. Elaine Gaffney, has worked tirelessly to create an awesome experience for all families.  Her dedication to St. Barnabas School is impressive and appreciated.

Let's all take a positive step toward this 2014-2015 school year and meet it with the premise that with change comes a chance to do things better, to excel at what has been done aptly in the past, and to explore what we can do best in the future.

"Committed to Excellence in Education"

Walk to end Alzheimer's
On Saturday September 20, 2014, 5th grade student, Jake Foster, participated in a 5K walk to end Alzheimer's in Glenview, Illinois.  It was his way of honoring his grandfather who died almost a year ago from this terrible illness.  He helped raise a family total of over $1000.  Way to go Jake!

Remembering 9/11
