Teaching tomorrow’s leaders through tradition, community and academic excellence.

Welcome to Mrs. DeFelice's Class!

Updated: 06/21/2019



My name is Linda DeFelice (, and I teach Kindergarten here at St. Nicholas School!

Kindergarten follows the curriculum defined by the Archdiocese of Newark Schools' Office. The Archdiocese of Newark's Schools Office completed a curriculum mapping project which carefully evaluated and examined both the math and English language arts curriculum from Kindergarten through high school. This project ensured that students are taught using a smooth and continuously progressing curriculum that challenges all students. Our math and English language arts curriculum meets or exceeds the Common Core Curriculum Standards adopted across the United States.

In addition to the standard curriculum, all students participate in one or more service projects each year, serving a diversity of causes such as seniors, impoverished children, supporting our missionaries, cancer charities, animal charities, and many others.

Taken altogether the total experience delivers on our school mission: To embrace, nurture, and educate all God's children preparing them for lives of service and leadership rooted in the Gospel values of faith, hope, and love.

Every child in our class is a STAR, and we have fun while learning.
