Dear Parents and Guardians,
Congratulations to our eighth graders on their recent acceptances to high school. They have earned over $200,000 in scholarship money to date, and are waiting to hear the final acceptances. They will be attending some of the finest Catholic high schools in the area as well as some of the more selective public high schools. Further updates will be communicated once all the decisions have been announced. We are proud of you!
This Friday night our students in grades K-4 will celebrate the First Annual Sweetheart Dance. It promises to be a very special evening of moms/sons and dads/daughters celebrating their very special relationship. Our very own 7th grader Sofia will be our DJ, there will be a magician, photography, snacks, and even prizes.
The St. Valentine's Dance for all students in Grades 5-8 has been rescheduled for Saturday, March 4th. It will be a fun night of dancing and partying with our closest and best friends - our St. Nicholas Family. Our girls and boys basketball season is in full swing, as is our bowling league for another season at Bowl Rite Lanes. Spring Track is scheduled to begin during the 2nd week of March - weather permitting.
Our Science program is preparing to send a dozen students to the Marist High School Science Workshops. Students will have the opportunity to participate in high school level science classes and be coached in writing Research Reports. The STEM Showcase organized by Mrs. Ellen Millan produced many fine STEM projects. Our winners have been invited to represent our school at the Hudson County STEM Showcase this spring. Stay tuned for more information. Mrs. Millan's STEM Science Club has produced their very own lip balm. What could be better than this type of learning in this environment?
Students have been enjoying their participation in Sr. Marie's Religion Club and her Technology Club. Through their participation, students have made a beautiful difference to our school and at the same time benefited greatly by developing their own skills.
Our Book Buddies Club is off to a fantastic start. Mrs. Whelihan recognized six students who have achieved milestones of 500 - 1,000 - and 1,500 pages of reading wonderful books in just one month. See our Facebook page for the details:
We had a very successful Open House. Parents interested in registering for next fall received personal tours from our National Junior Honor Society students. Registration materials are available now. Please call the school at 201-659-5948 to schedule your tour today.
Have a great day!
