House
On Halloween night, the doorbell at
Mrs. Higdon’s house was rung by many
St. Barnabas Warriors and she was
happy to see each of them.
November 8
This past week, Mrs. Higdon stopped
RHS
in to see us at school for the first
Placement Test
time. She continues to recuperate
and we hope to see her back at school
11:30-12:30
before Christmas break. We continue
Market Day Pick Up
to pray for her recovery.
In her absence, Mrs. Jody Treadwell
November 26-28
has been teaching music to the
Thanksgiving Break
students. It’s my privilege to hear
them practicing songs for the Christmas programs scheduled next
month.

Thank you to all who participated and attended in various PTO events so far this year. Look at how much
we’ve raised….

Skating Party- $90.00
Pennies for Pies- Collect $ to purchase 5 pies for Anna’s House & The Good House.
Firehouse Sub Night- $350.00
SCRIPs- Approximately $9,000
SCRIP’s (Please Read)
We have raised nearly $9,000 thus far for our MAJOR PTO fundraiser, Scrips. Thank you to all who
are
making a conscious effort to participate!! As we choose to send our kids to a WONDERFUL
Catholic School, St. Barnabas, we have to be mindful of the sacrifices that are being made as part of
our decision…. Fundraising being a huge part. This is part of the reason we chose to go with SCRIPS
as our major fundraiser….we are not asking you to do anything or purchase anything out of the
ordinary… we are simply asking
you to use SCRIPS to make your everyday purchases, whatever that
may be…Gas, Groceries, Dining Out, Clothing etc….
It is TOO easy not to participate! Please don’t
forget our goal is for each family to purchase SCRIPS to generate a $100 rebate by the end of the
year. As a Community, let’s try to get to $25,000!!
Current SCRIP IncentivePurchase $100 worth of SCRIP from October 14th until next Wednesday, November 12th and your
child can be out of uniform on Friday November 14th!!
For questions about SCRIPS please email [email protected]
