Week of September 16, 2019
Dear Paramus Catholic Families,
     The Beatitudes were studied last school year as a school-wide faith-filled project. This year, the students of Paramus Catholic will be studying the Stations of the Cross. Each of the fourteen stations will be revealed to them in a thoughtful and introspective manner so that students will be more able to identify with each one and be able to ingratiate their meanings into their everyday lives. The Stations of the Cross help us to understand Jesus’ sacrifice and love for us. This week begins by the explanation as to why they are so meaningfully portrayed in each church and by the introduction of the first station that says:
“Jesus is condemned to death”.
Students will hear of Jesus’ unjust condemnation.  It will be noted that this idea of unjust condemnation exists in the modern world. Unfortunately, people in today’s society are condemned for the color of their skin, for their beliefs, disabilities, and so on. It is through this recognition that we can and must change our hearts to do better and to accept others.
As part of the Student Wellness Program, the cafeteria is offering nutritional options daily. Please see the school website for information on this.
Over the summer, programs for Student Enrichment were instituted to allow students to become familiarized with career opportunities. Rothman Orthopedics will be offering students shadowing opportunities in their medical centers. This will be starting in January with limited spaces. This is open to seniors only.  Also, PricewaterhouseCoopers will be offering a financial literacy presentation. In addition, we have students participating in the Physical Training Program on campus.
A Student Mentoring Program was developed in which Freshmen students are now mentored by an upperclassman Ambassador student. It is called our Paladin program.
Please note that all Student/Parent Handbook forms must be electrically signed by Tuesday, September 17, 2019. In addition, on Tuesday, seniors will meet for Senior Focus during first period. During this session, seniors will be presented with a checklist of items needed for the year.
 On Wednesday, all parents/guardians are welcome to join us during “Back to School Night” which starts promptly at 6:30 PM and will continue until 8:30 PM. The evening will begin in homeroom, and throughout the evening, parents/guardians will follow their child’s schedule.
Please know that each staff member is here to help you and your child navigate through the wonderful years of high school. While walking through the halls during “Back to School” night, please stop by the bulletin board outside my office and take a look at the dedicated faculty and staff of Paramus Catholic.
Administration, faculty, and staff come together following Mother Teresa’s quote, “ Together we can do great things”.
Have a great week!
In your gratitude,
Principal Macaluso
