Barnsdale Road School

Welcome to Barnsdale Base!

Welcome to the Barnsdale BASE family!

At Barnsdale Base we offer a fun and safe environment for your child(ren) before and after school.

In the mornings we offer breakfast, activity centers, and a fun place to wake up before school starts.

In the afternoons we provide a snack, outside/gym time, homework time, crafts, and activities. We strive to bring an enriched recreational curriculum as well as socialization and activities to all BASE kids.

At BASE we feel communication between staff and parents is key to ensure that any insights, concerns, or highlights are shared. Mrs. Anna is the Barnsdale supervisor and will be your main contact person for schedule changes, someone new will be picking up your child(ren), or if you have any questions or concerns.

Barnsdale is the School District 102 Kindergarten School. Our partnership with School District 102 allows us to bus Base students to their home schools for the family’s convenience.

Currently the home school bussing options are as follows:

Barnsdale and Cossitt- Kindergarteners can be dropped off at Cossitt morning Base and bussed to Barnsdale for the school day. Unfortunately, Cossitt’s afternoon spaces are reserved for 1-6 grade students at Cossitt, therefore Kindergarteners cannot be bussed back to Cossitt in the afternoon and must stay at Barnsdale for Afternoon Base

Barnsdale and Ogden- Kindergarteners can be dropped off at Ogden morning Base and bussed to Barnsdale for the school day. Unfortunately, Ogden’s afternoon spaces are reserved for 1-6 grade students at Ogden, therefore Kindergarteners cannot be bussed back to Ogden in the afternoon and must stay at Barnsdale for Afternoon Base.

My name is Anna Catelli, and I will be caring for your kindergartner before and after school. This is going to be my 15th year as a B.A.S.E. supervisor at Barnsdale Road School.

I am a married, mother of two, and have resided in LaGrange Park for the past 30 years. Our son attended Forest Road School and is an ISU graduate. Our daughter is currently attending University of Illinois.

As a parent, I know and understand the concerns and obstacles we face in our daily lives. I can assure you that your children will be treated with love and respect as they make this difficult transition from toddler to student. I have two assistants: Mrs. Monica and Mrs. Lupe who will be assisting me with caring for your child.
