Pinwheels for Peace

September 19, 2019

Students celebrate International Day of Peace by joining thousands of other schools and oraganizations around the world in creating and planting pinwheels.  On one side of their pinwheel they use words to write out their thoughts and feelings about peace.  On the other side, the expression is visual through painting, drawing, collage, etc.  Once they're made, we gather outside our school to plant them in the grass as a symbol of our unity with those around the world who strive for a more peaceful planet.  

Family Service Night is October 10, 2019 & Acts of Service and Kindness month of October

St. Nick's Day

In honor of St. Nicholas, our students learn the importance of generosity through fun festivities.  One day each year, the hallways are lined with shoes as far as the eye can see and filled with special treats by a surprise guest!  St. Nick even stops by each classroom to discuss the value of giving.  We pray they carry these lessons with them as they grow and feel the warmth of the holiday season all year through.

Presidential Wax Museum

A highlight of 3rd grade is certainly the Presidential Wax Museum!  Students choose a president to impersonate, research and create a presentation to display.  Parents and teachers then visit each "president" in the room to learn interesting facts regarding their personal life and presidency.  It quickly becomes evident that students are not the only ones learning a lot about our nation's leaders! 

Annual Fund Social Event

April 17, 2020

6:00 to 8:00 pm

Each year we celebrate the Annual Fund by hosting an event for those interested in making a donation, or learning more about the Annual Fund at St. Bart's. Donations generated are used to bridge the funding gap between the cost of educating each child and the amount of tuition collected per child.  Combined with funds raised by our PTO and our endowment, Annual Fund proceeds are a major source of non-tuition revenue and assist in off-setting school operational expenses.

Kindergarten & New Family Orientation

April 24, 2020

Incoming Kindergarten families are invited to join us in anticipation for the coming school year. Parents learn about Kindergarten at St. Bart's, meet the teacher and principal which students visit the classroom.  This is a great way for students to experience the Kindergarten classroom while parents learn about curriculum and get to know other parents.  

Teacher Appreciation Week

April 27 - May 1, 2020

One week every year our parents, students and volunteers show their appreciation for our school staff. Funny staff photos are taken, bottomless bowls of candy take up residence in the office, and fun is had by all. Teachers and staff are truly honored every year by the generosity and gratitude shown by the entire school community.   

Spanish Mass at Holy Rosary Parish

May 6, 2020

Every May, as close to Cinco de Mayo as possible, our entire school population attends a Spanish Mass at Holy Rosary, our sister parish in Minneapolis.  It is wonderful to see both communities gather together for the celebration of Mass and the connection we all share with the wider community.  This experience is a great reminder of our responsibility to support one another as Catholic Schools and Parishes.  

4th Grade States Fair

May 8, 2020

1:30 pm

Presenting their knowledge or our states is a highlight of the 4th grade year at St. Bart's.  Each student selects a state to research and creates a presentation to share with the rest of the school.  Students and teachers visit each display to hear a 4th grade student present on their prospective state.  New and interesting facts are learned by all at the 4th Grade States Fair!  

Grandparents/Special Friends Mass

One Mass every school year is designated for our grandparents and special friends.  Loved ones join students for Mass as well as a tour through the Art Show and Book Fair.  Hallways are covered with student art for them to share and the Library is transformed into the Book Fair for all to enjoy!

Monday, June 15, 2020

Registration at 12:00 pm

At St. Bart's we believe that anyone with a desire for a Catholic education should be able to receive it, regardless of their financial situation.  For this reason, every year we raise money for scholarships by hosting an annual golf tournament. This has been an enjoyable way for the golfers at St. Bart's to support our school and ensure tuition assistance is available to anyone in need.
