SFB Cares! Virtual Walk-a-thon 2020

Our first mandatory fundraiser is approaching. This year, our annual walk-a-thon will be virtual from November 15th - November 29th. More details about the Walk-a-thon and pledges will be shared soon. We have set up online payments for walk-a-thon t-shirts and monetary donations.

Paying for shirts - those ordering additional (non-student) shirts can pay for them on Classy for $10 per shirt.

Making donations - families will get 1 hour per $10 donation, with no limit put on hours earned. Total 20 hours required for Fully Participating Families this year. These funds can help with the expenses for the t-shirts and walk-a-thon prizes.


Payments and donations can be made here.


If you have any questions, please contact Lynda Taschek - Walk-a-thon Coordinator: volunteer@stfinnbarr.org

7th Grade Religion Project

In Religion, the 7th grade is studying that God invites us to give the gift of ourselves and be a gift of self to others. The class felt that our principal, Ms. Kimble, was the perfect example of giving the gift of herself to us all at St. Finn Barr School! They created this Padlet to show how much they truly appreciate Ms. Kimble!

Thank You, Men's Club!

A huge THANK YOU to the St. Finn Barr Men's Club for helping us prepare the campus for our students! They have dedicated numerous hours over the weekends and in the evenings to ensure our classrooms, yard, hallways, and Goode Hall are marked and ready for students as soon as the Department of Public Health tells us that we can have students on campus. We cannot thank them enough for all of their time and effort!
