Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Welcome to the 132nd year of excellence at St. Nicholas School! Our faculty and students have completed their first full week of school, and we are settling into our new classrooms. Welcome back to all our returning students and to our new friends as well.

     Please join me in welcoming Professor Dennis Sevano, our Professor in Residence. Professor Sevano is part of William Paterson University's - Professor in Residence program and will be supplementing our Junior High English Language Arts. Future Generation has completed a complete overhaul of our Internet accessibility and positioned us for the future. A new suite of chrome books will be added to our Junior High to be implemented with our English Language Arts program to allow students access to Google for Education and a whole world of collaborative, project-based work assignments. Our teachers in grades K-4 will continue to work with our Guided Reading consultants to bring the best instructional practices to our younger students.

     Our STEM science fair is scheduled for December 18th. Our junior high students have been charged with solving a variety of problems and coming up with unique solutions in a collaborative, team-based effort. As well, our Junior STEM science fair is set for Thursday, December 14th. Parents are invited to both events.

     Our sports teams have been enjoying a terrific season of competition and team-building with their friends. Now that the fall running track season has ended, we are beginning basketball workouts. Our after school Coding Clubs have formed teams and are preparing to attack the Code Rush competition in the spring (last year they were the 1st place national winners!). If you haven't heard the St. Nicholas Choir sing, please join us for one of our school liturgies. We will be celebrating the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on Friday - all are welcome.

     Our induction ceremony for the National Junior Honor Society is to be held on Wednesday as part of our celebration of the life and legacy of St. Nicholas our patron saint. The students selected for this honor have demonstrated excellence in the areas of character, leadership, scholarship, Christian witness, and citizenship. These students are the best of the best!

     We are preparing our Annual Giving Tree Service Project whereby we will help bring joy to children in Jersey City who otherwise might not experience a full Christmas. If you are looking to get into the Christmas spirit, please call the school for your invitation to our Annual Christmas Concert. It will be held in the church - tickets are required, so please call the school office.

      Parents interested in registration please call for your registration materials now at 201-659-5948 to schedule your tour today. 

Have a great day!

Bernadette Miglin
