Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the 132nd year of excellence at St. Nicholas School! As always, we have been adding to our instructional program through STEM-infused activities, new technology, enhanced instructional techniques, and of course, a strong community of parents, teachers, and students.
Our STEM fair and our STEM junior fair were amazing! The junior high students were 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 asked students to create solutions to popular children's fairy tales. The Kindergarteners had to build a house strong enough to withstand the Big Bad Wolf while PreK students had to create a solution to a very noisy house. Fourth graders built ferris wheels out of common household products, and third graders build sailboats that had to sail in a straight line (made of paper and straws). See our Facebook page for the details.
Some of our Christmas celebrations included Breakfast with Santa and our Christmas Concert which were enjoyable and provided wonderful seasonal celebrations for all ages. Our Annual Giving Tree Service Project allowed our children to help bring joy to other less fortunate children in Jersey City who otherwise might not experience a full Christmas.
Our sports teams have been enjoying a terrific season of competition and team-building with their friends. Our basketball team workouts and competitions have begun. 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.
Our induction ceremony for the National Junior Honor Society was held on Wednesday, December 6th 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!
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.
