Dear Parents and Guardians,
Please see the letter from Ellen Ayoub, Secretary of Education, on our website which provides information about the results of the Climate and Culture Survey for the Diocese of Metuchen. Parents/guardians and stakeholders are now asked to participate in the Catholic Identity Defining Characteristics Survey. Please use the link provided in Ellen Ayoub’s letter to access and complete the survey. Your input is valuable and I appreciate your participation.
Our first Story Series was a success and I invite all 3, 4, and 5 year olds who are considering enrolling in St. Bartholomew School to attend our second Story Series, which will be held on March 4, 2019, beginning at 10:45 am. Please call the School Office to register.
Our Mission Fair was wonderful as students raised money for the missions. Thank you, Mrs. Russo and Ms. Phillips, for chairing this event, and all our volunteers who helped make this event a success.
A dentist will visit our Kindergarten students on Tuesday, February 19, to teach students about dental health.

Congratulations to Ysa G., Kyle G., and Antonio T., who will be participating in the Woman’s Club Spelling Bee next weekend!
Please see the Communication Envelope for our newsletter and other important information. Registration is ongoing. Please submit your bus forms, which we must submit to the state.

May the Holy Family, icon and model of every human family, help each individual to walk in the spirit of Nazareth.
Have a wonderful week!
