Dear Paramus Catholic Families,
     Welcome Back from Winter break. It is my hope that you all had a good week. We are now in the second week of the Lenten season. Let us remember the key components of Lent are Prayer, Fasting, Almsgiving, and Charity. Fasting during the Lenten Season does not mean only “giving up” things but can also be a time of concentrating on “doing” things such as acts of kindness. As Catholics, being kind to others in imitation of Christ should always be part of our life. Pope Francis states: "Fasting makes sense if it chips away at our security and, as a consequence, benefits someone else, if it helps us cultivate the style of the good Samaritan, who bent down to his brother in need and took care of him”. Students of Paramus Catholic are reminded of this simple yet profound virtue. Our young people should be retold daily the importance of kindness and also reflect on ways to act kindly toward those people whom they meet throughout the day. This is particularly important as we navigate the world of social media as it can be a cruel and unkind platform. 
     Paramus Catholic families are encouraged to follow us on Instagram to look at our social media as PC students are doing amazing things! They represent PC so well. I am very proud of them.
      As we end February, which was dedicated to Heart Awareness and Black History, please ask your children to discuss with you how Black History was incorporated into the daily curriculum.  
     I am asking that all parents/guardians check your child’s dress code before leaving home. Non-compliant students will be sent home.
     Please remember that students may not linger in the building unsupervised. At dismissal, students should either be picked up or take the school bus home unless they are in a supervised activity. These simple guidelines are important and are in place to maintain a safe school environment. 
    Please read this wonderful article, “Is your Child Happy?” representing our Pillar of Wellness. 
I wish you all a safe and good week, 
In your gratitude, 
Dr. Stephanie Macaluso
