From our Principal Principal's Page | Testimonials
For over fifty years, Saint Bartholomew School has prepared students to lead fulfilling and purposeful lives in a climate of caring, trust, and respect rooted in the Gospel spirit of love, service, and charity. The model of community we seek is one that embraces our core mission: to love, educate, and inspire our children to live the teachings of Jesus Christ. It is in this sacred landscape that we are authentically present in the classroom and deeply connected with our students, and these connections are held in our hearts, where intellect and spirit meet.

We guide our students to weave a world of learning through best practice in instruction and learning in an environment that is exciting, collaborative, and reflective. An overarching theme of academic optimism, equity, and excellence prevails. Our enrollment is strong and increasing as we continuously update our technology, curriculum, facilities, books, library, professional development, and safety procedures in order to maintain the framework of Best Practice structures and proven cutting-edge implementation strategies.

We partner with our parents/guardians, volunteers, Home School Association, and School Advisory Committee to offer an affordable and outstanding education. Student leaders are developed through our Mentoring and Buddy Programs. We seek to develop and make visible the creativity, productivity, richness, and fruitfulness present in each student through our highly qualified faculty. It is for these reasons that, as stated by parents of a recent graduate in a testimonial, “Saint Bartholomew School should be the standard for all Catholic Elementary Schools.”

Come and see what the Saint Bartholomew School family has to offer!

God bless you,
Mrs. Ann Wierzbicki, R.N., M.A.E./Ed.S.

You are cordially invited to attend a concert that will benefit the Ave Maria Endowment Fund for St. Bartholomew School. The event will take place on Saturday, November 18 at 7:00 PM in the church. Married, singing duo – Vincent and Emily Ricciardi, who have performed together throughout the tristate area, will share songs of hope, peace and patriotism. Nino Pantano of the Italian Voice stated that Vincent & Emily are “two of the most promising and talented performers today. Vincent Ricciardi’s lyric tenor is blessed with a smooth and easy top and gives the listener much to savor. Emily Wright-Ricciardi's secure and saucy soprano was a model of elegance."

We hope you will join us for a relaxing evening as we celebrate the Thanksgiving Season.

For your convenience, a link to the ticket order form is included below. To reserve your tickets, please complete the form and return it with your payment to St. Bartholomew School. Your tickets will be mailed to you or you may pick up your pre-paid, reserved tickets at the door.
