About Us

Family School Association (FSA)

The FSA is a volunteer parent organization, similar to traditional PTA.  The goal of our association is to provide additional programs and sponsored events that will not only enhance our school curriculum, but also add some fun and different activities to the school year for the children as well as the parents.  All of the programs and activities that we work hard to develop are not included in the school budget.  We strive to make each student's experience at St. Barnabas School a well rounded one.

All FSA events and programs are made possible entirely through volunteers.  Volunteers can spend as little as an hour a week, an hour a month, or an hour a school year.  Some projects can even be done at home.

Each and every parent is a welcomed member of the FSA.  Our meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 7:00pm in the Convent.  Our goal is to involve as many parents as we can to help make everyone's experience at our school the best it can be.
