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 friendsas well.

    Summer reading packets are to be returned to school right away so we can finalize our contest winners! Good luck to all the classes.

     We are planning continued enhancements to our program this year including a partnership with William Paterson University's - Professor in Residence program to supplement 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.

     We have brought on several new teachers who I am excited to introduce. Please see my note to families that will be sent home with students. Parents of students in grades 1-8 are asked to plan on attending our Back to School Open House on the 20th when you will be able to meet and speak with our new faculty for grades 6 and 7 as well as all the teachers! The event is 7PM - adults only.

     Calling all Class Parents and Volunteers -- There is a Protecting God's Children Workshop scheduled for Saturday, September 30th at 10:00 in the school gym. This is a mandatory class for all volunteers at the school and church. Register for an account at and then register for the class. Please call the school office if you have questions. 

      Parents interested in registering for September, please call for your registration materials now. Call the school at 201-659-5948 to schedule your tour today. 

Have a great day!

Bernadette Miglin
