Hello November! What a blessing this beautiful weather has been. We had another memorable week here at St. Barnabas. Thank you to everyone who came out to Pack the Pews last weekend, seeing our community come together to pray was so powerful. Our Halloween celebrations and festivities were a blast. The joy on the faces of our Buckeyes was contagious. Thank you to all of our amazing parents who came in to help out with classroom parties and the parade. Our All Saints Day Mass and Wax Museum was an amazing experience. Thank you to our 4th graders for modeling for us the incredible lives of the saints. Wednesday was All Souls Day, let us take a moment to remember all those we love, who have joined the angels. Thank you to Culture Club for our incredible Ofrenda in the front hallway. We continue to be in awe of our school and community. Go Buckeyes! - Mr. Jonathan Stack and Ms. Grace Sadowski

The first trimester ends on Tuesday, November 22. Remember to review Powerschool and Google Classroom weekly and please check in with your child on their current grades. Students should ensure all missing work is completed, and they may check in with their teacher if they have questions or concerns. Not sure how to log into PowerSchool - email Lisa Sarcinella at For Google Classroom - email Kathleen Davies at Report cards will be sent home with students on Friday, December 2. 

Per The Parent-Student Handbook, "Report cards will not be released to children if family tuition payments and/or other fees are not current, or other obligations are not met. Access to Power School will be blocked until all financial obligations are met." Please check your FACTS account to ensure that your Tuition and Before/After Care accounts are current.

FSA would like to thank everyone who participated in the first Eat and Earn of the year at Home Run Inn Pizza. $623.17 was raised for the school! The winner of the spirit wear raffle will be announced soon.

Be on the lookout for the December Eat and Earn at S&T Provisions. The pizza vouchers make great stocking stuffers or a fun Christmas break activity for the kids! 

red tag


Through the Red Tag Program, St. Barnabas has contributed thousands of Christmas gifts to disadvantaged children for decades by partnering with Catholic Charities and the Salvation Army. Last year St. Barnabas Parish helped 1,300 children! In the spirit of the season, we invite all families to contribute to this heartfelt parish program. Financial contributions may be made through Give Central and generous parish volunteers will ensure children in need are blessed again this year.

Pilgrim Invite


International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima will be at the Barsch Family home from November 6 - November 12.  The statue is a blessed symbol that “tours” different sites to bring the graces of Fatima and Our Lady’s message of hope, peace, and salvation to those many millions of people who may never have an opportunity to make a pilgrimage to Fatima. All are welcome to join together at the Barsch home to pray the rosary together.
