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

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.
