Beauty and the Beast, Jr.

Our annual school play and fundraiser, Beauty and the Beast Jr., will be held Friday March 8th and Saturday March 9th at St. Joseph High School in Lakewood. While the play is sold out there is still a great opportunity for you to support our school through our on-line auction!

The auction runs from February 18th to March 1st. The link to the auction site is:

St. Barnabas School Auction

Please note that auction items will not appear until the auction starts (but there is a lot of great stuff sitting in my spare bedroom!).

New Basketball Courts

Thanks to a generous donation by the Lalonde family and Crew, Inc. and all those who contributed to Spring Event’s Support Our Sports, we have new basketball courts!

New Landscaping

A dedicated group of volunteers spent part of their summer updating the landscaping for our daycare / parish center. Come check it out – they did an amazing job!

 

New Air Conditioning

After much effort (and a few discoveries about our main power feed), we’re pleased to announce that the new air conditioning system has been completed!

As part of the project, the school’s main power is also being upgraded, which will come in handy to support our goal of one child – one device, starting in the 2017/18 school year.

New Uniforms

Included in the attachment is the information about our new uniforms from Vicki Marsha. They are our exclusive uniform provider.

St. Barnabas Green Team

Our student-run Green Team, “Give Green a Chance,” works hard to keep our campus clean and litter free.  We have an active recycling program where we raise money through the collection of bottles and cans on the church and school grounds.  We encourage all of our students to be good stewards of the environment and to do their part.

Yum Club

St. Barnabas School is pleased to announce that we’re going to start offering lunch orders from YumClub

YumClub’s mission is to provide students and parents with healthy food choices from restaurants they know and trust. YumClub allows schools to bring their students local restaurant meals, meeting state and federal guidelines for school lunches.  All menu options are nutritionist certified, affordable and exceed dietary guidelines for today’s youth. At YumClub we help communities support each otherby contracting only with local restaurants within a 2-5 mile radius of each school. We believe in helping each other and building strong relationships within communities.

YumClub’s ordering and payment will be handled on-line via their website.
