Service Projects

 
St. Barnabas realizes that offering a compelling religion curriculum in the classroom isn’t enough to develop stewards of Christ in action if students aren’t acting it out in their daily lives.  Therefore, we also offer additional opportunities for all students to act as the hands of Jesus in our All-School Service Day, rotating Buckeye Block curriculum, grade-level service projects and school-wide charitable efforts helping those in need.  Nothing gives us greater pride as a school community than witnessing our students out in the world, showing kindness and compassion and acting on behalf of those less fortunate.

St. Barnabas students of various ages have coordinated fundraisers over the years.  One recent example is “Change for Pets,” which two 5th-grade boys spearheaded on behalf of shelter animals, and “Volley for a Cause,” put on by our Student Council, in which winners of the tournament get to choose which charity the entry fees will go to.  Other examples of our students’ and families’ commitment to service include fundraisers to help Puerto Rico and Texas after Hurricanes Maria and Harvey, respectively.
