Principal's Letter

From the Principal's Desk


Dear Parents and Guardians,

    It has been another outstanding 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.

   The 133rd graduating class of St. Nicholas scholars was celebrated and sent off to high schools across the New York Metropolitan Area. These excellent students were awarded almost $400,000 in scholarship funding to the very prestigious St. Peter's Prep, St. Dominic Academy, Marist High School and Hudson Catholic High School (among others). Several of our graduating students have been accepted to Dr. Ronald E. McNair Academic High School as well as High Tech High School and County Prep High School. Congratulations to them!

      Our STEM program took off this past year with our 5th Grade team of scientists who were named Bronze winners in the 2018 Hudson County STEM Showcase. This is the third year in a row St. Nicholas students have been honored with either a gold, silver, or bronze award in what The Jersey Journal has dubbed, 'Hudson County's Super Bowl of Science.'  We are building a new STEM Maker Space classroom where students to extend this achievement where students will be challenged to think 'outside the box' in building and creating solutions to everyday problems. Robots, circuit boards, and even 3D printing will be utilized to bring our students firmly into a 21st century educational environment.

           Our Coding Club won first place for the 2nd year in a row in the CodeMonkey-Code Rush competition. Sponsored by Microsoft and Makey Makey, “Code Rush” is a coding contest held by CodeMonkey Studios, Inc. The Code Rush competition helps students build the fundamentals of computer science including multi-step problem solving and analytical thinking. The students were required to solve a total of 140 programming challenges using CoffeeScript programming language in the shortest possible time. Under the direction of Mrs. Hiranmayee Suresh two teams were formed and participated in the elementary and middle school divisions. Their hard work resulted in Saint Nicholas teams winning 1st place in both divisions!

    Our Junior High Language Arts program will welcome back Professor Dennis Sevano. Professor Sevano is part of William Paterson University's - Professor in Residence program. A new suite of chrome books will be added to our Junior High to be implemented with the Maker Space classroom which will allow students access to Google for Education and a whole world of collaborative, project-based work assignments. Teachers in grades K-4 will continue to work with our Guided Reading consultants to bring the best instructional practices to our younger students.
