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. We have contracted with a new technology company to bring our Internet accessibility up to date and position 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 in the same way they were added last year to our science program. 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 sports teams have been getting into the 'swing' of things. Running track has been practicing at Pershing Field. Our girls volleyball team has been enjoying their matches in the Hudson County League, and our boys basketball is practicing for the beginning of their season. Our after school Arts and Crafts classes have been getting very crafty with Miss Lou Ann. This year, we have formed two groups of coding teams: the first team is for grades 3-5, and the second team is for students in grades 6-8. Teams meet once a week, and are anticipated to join the Code Rush competition in the spring.

     Students in 8th grade have been preparing for their high school entrance exams. The PSAT is tomorrow, and the COOP is scheduled for November 10th. In connection with this, our prep class is underway to review material, and practice test-taking strategies. Work hard - good luck to all.

      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
