Our Saint Bartholomew School Pre-Kindergarten Program has received the prestigious honor of being voted the Best Preschool in Middlesex County (Home News Tribune Readers’ Choice Contest 2017). Thank you !!

*** We are running low on disinfecting wipes, paper towels, and glue sticks . If you would like to volunteer and bring in any of those items, it would be greatly appreciated. *

*Join us at Barnes and Noble in East Brunswick on Thursday, May 24th from 5-8pm for a fun filled evening. If you purchase books, a donation will be made to the school. Look for me in the children's area from 7:00 -8:00 pm.

On Friday, May 25, there will be an 11:30 AM dismissal. Aftercare will still be available. There will be no school on Monday, May 28.

If your child has a summer birthday and would like to celebrate his/her birthday in school, please let us know what day is best.

*Re-registration Packets have been sent home. Please read them over and return to school as soon as possible to guarantee a place in Kindergarten. Thank you.

*Delayed Opening Information: If St. Bartholomew School has a 2 hour delayed opening, Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 will begin at 9:30AM and end at normal time. Our doors will open at 9:20am . Announcements will be made through the Honeywell Instant Alert System and will be posted on the School's main webpage.

*Please try to arrive at school between 8:20 AM and 8:30 AM to allow time for the children to take care of their belongings. Children who are late miss our circle time activities. If you are to arrive before 8:20 AM you will be charged for morning care. Thank you.

*Aftercare: Aftercare students will be supplied with a snack during the stay in aftercare, but we would like you to provide a drink for your child. There was a mistake on the letter that went home stating that both would be provided; however, it will just be a snack. Children will be may use the water fountain in our Pre-K building and the water cooler when they are over in the gym. Sorry for the confusion and thanks for your understanding.

*Please remember to call 732-257-6668 or send an email to if your child will be absent for the day. Also, remember that we require a note when your child returns to school. Please see the Nurse’s webpage on our website for all health office information.

*Parents please make sure to label backpacks, lunch boxes and jackets.


If you volunteer at the school during the school day, you must take the "Protecting God's Children" Workshop and have a criminal background check with fingerprinting. You must pre-register for this session on the Diocese of Metuchen website at Our Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Kaitlin McAndrew, is the facilitator. If you have any questions, please contact the School Office or send me an email.
