Dear Parents and Guardians,
Unfortunately last week's snow forced us to postone our St. Valentine's Sports Dance for all students in Grades 5-8. Coach Sasso is working with the leage to coordinate a date that allows everyone to attend. It will be a fun night of dancing and partying with our closest and best friends - our St. Nicholas Family. Our girls and boys basketball season is in full swing, as is our bowling league for another season at Bowl Rite Lanes.
Students in grades K-4 are invited to the 1st Annual St. Nicholas Sweetheart Dance. This dance honors the special relationship between moms and their sons and dads and their daughters. It will be held on February 24th from 7-9PM. There will be lots of pictures, dancing, a magician, DJ - our very own Sofia from 7th grade, and much fun. Please contact the school office regarding tickets.
Our Science program is preparing to send a dozen students to the Marist High School Science Workshops. Students will have the opportunity to participate in high school level science classes and be coached in writing Research Reports. The STEM Showcase organized by Mrs. Ellen Millan produced many fine STEM projects. Our winners have been invited to represent our school at the Hudson County STEM Showcase this spring. Stay tuned for more information. Mrs. Millan's STEM Science Club is working on a project to produce their very own lip balm. What could be better than this type of learning in this environment?
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 Book Buddies Club is off to a fantastic start. Yesterday, Mrs. Whelihan recognized six students who have achieved milestones of 500 - 1,000 - and 1,500 pages of reading wonderful books in just one month. See our Facebook page for the details:
We had a very successful Open House last month. Parents interested in registering for next fall received personal tours from our National Junior Honor Society students. Registration materials are available now. Please call the school at 201-659-5948 to schedule your tour today.
Have a great day!
