Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Welcome to the 133rd 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.

Please support our call-to-action to maintain funding for these important programs by clicking on the link below. Tell Trenton we support our Catholic schools!

      Congratulations to Sofia Oro who has been named Outstanding Catholic School Student of 2018!  Sofia's dedication to service speaks loudly to her commitment to doing the work of Jesus. Our 8th grade students have begun receiving their high school acceptances. Seven of our graduating students have been accepted to the very prestigious Dr. Ronald E. McNair Academic High School as well as St. Peter's Prep, St. Dominic Academy, High Tech and County Prep High Schools. Congratulations to them!

      Congratulations to 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.' Outstanding work was done to achieve this award. We are proud of all students in the competition.

      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 week of February 19th kicked off Engineering Week. Junior high students competed to create the best 'ball launcher' as part of the Fluor Engineering Challenge to demonstrate problem solving through STEM skills. The overall winner was 7th grader Angelina Rivera whose device launched the ball the furthest.

     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. Between February and March, hundreds of teams from the United States and Canada participated in the competition. 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. The teams: Grades 3-5 and Grades 6-8 met over the past eight weeks to compete with extraordinary spirit and perseverance. This hard work resulted in Saint Nicholas teams winning 1st place in both divisions!

     The Code Rush competition helps students build the fundamentals of computer science including multi-step problem solving and analytical thinking. Congratulations to both of our first place teams!

     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. 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.
