St. Barnabas School Welcomes You

What an exciting first year our new principal, Mrs. Gaffney, is having!  The people of St. Barnabas School have gone to great lengths to make Mrs. Gaffney feel welcome and appreciated.  So far, Mrs. Gaffney's "jump right in" attitude has impressed everyone, along with her achievements.

It's hard to believe we are more than half way through the school year.  So many fun events and accomplishments have continued to make St. Barnabas School a well-respected staple of the Beverly neighborhood.

Much still to come this year...St. Baldrick's festivities, the Spring school production of "Mulan", Spring Break and the Easter holiday, field trips, Earth Day activities, Book Fair, Art Fair, 1st Holy Communion for our second graders, May Crowning, Spirit Day, and all of our 8th grade graduation activities.  Make sure you stay tuned to St. Barnabas, where if you miss a day, you miss a lot!

Be a part of tomorrow’s success stories…be a part of St. Barnabas School.

Science Class
In Science class, 8th graders designed and built a closed reaction chamber to observe the combustion of sucrose to model the law of conservation of mass.  They observed how carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms convert to water vapor and solid carbon dioxide and determined that the mass of the products remain the same after a chemical reaction.
