Embracing, Nurturing, and Educating ALL God's Children
What's New at St. Nicholas School
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to Catholic Schools Week! From our opening Mass on Sunday to our closing Mass on Friday, Feb. 5th, this has been quite a celebration. We have welcomed heroes from the Jersey City PD and the NJ State Police to share their vocations with students. Father Bruce shared his vocation and impressed the students with his language skills and heartfelt talk about God's call.
Tuesday the Hudson Catholic basketball players generously spent their afternoon with our 7th and 8th grade basketball teams. Dancing with DJ Al and raising funds for the missions with our 8th Grade Fun Fair have all given our students and their families wonderful memories of another great Catholic Schools Week. The HSA will host the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon on Friday, and sponsor a Roller Skating event on Friday night to close out this very special celebration.
A complete schedule of events to celebrate our wonderful school is enclosed with the Principal's Letter.
