Dear Parents and Guardians,
As we begin the '2nd half' of the school year, there are many things to look forward to. January brings us Catholic Schools Week - January 29 - February 4th. The theme for the celebration is: "Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service". Each day of the week will bring a different theme: Sunday - Celebrating Parishes; Monday - Celebrating Communities; Tuesday - Celebrating Students and Families; Wednesday: Celebrating the Nation; Thursday: Celebrating Vocations; Friday- Celebrating Faculty, Staff, and Volunteers.
Some of the exciting events planned: Opening Mass with the fantastic St. Nicholas Children's Choir and our 8th grade speakers, an Open House for prospective parents, honoring our community helpers, student relay race challenges in physical education classes, 'growing our faith' activities sponsored by our wonderful Religion Club, classroom 'Door Decoration Contest', the Hudson Catholic Basketball Team clinic and scrimmage, cultural heritage day, Academic Superbowl where students challenge each other in a Jeopardy-like competition (no money involved), raising money for the Missions with our 'Fun Fair' sponsored by our 6th and 8th graders, a student dance, and the ever popular - Teacher Takeover - where student teams take over each class for one period. Catholic Schools Week is (of course) very popular with our students, and allows them to showcase their responsibility and maturity as they sponsor the different events and help us to Celebrate Catholic Schools! We really do make a difference in the lives of our students.
Our girls and boys basketball season is in full swing, and we are preparing to begin our bowling league for another season at Bowl Rite Lanes.
The STEM Showcase organized by Mrs. Ellen Millan produced many fine STEM projects. The winners to be announced shortly. They will be invited to represent our school at the Hudson County STEM Showcase this spring.
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 Open House is planned for Monday, January 29th from 9:00 - 11:00 am. Please call the school office at 201-659-5948 to reserve your place. Parents interested in registering for next fall will be given the opportunity to preview our academic program and experience the warmth of our school community.
Have a great day!
