Week of December 9, 2019
Dear Paramus Catholic Families,
     During this the second week of Advent, we examine the fifth Station of the Cross-, which states “Simon Helps Jesus Carry His Cross”. Here Jesus’ strength is failing and Simon from Cyrene is forced to help him. Initially, he was not compelled to help Jesus carry the cross but his heart changes and he offers his shoulders to help bear the burden. As we live this Station today, we are reminded to always relish God’s grace and never cease to love him and to understand that service to God and others is what Jesus asks of us.
     As you now enter the Paramus Catholic gymnasium, you will be entering the newly named     “Dr. Rose Battalgia Gymnasium” and athletes will be playing on the “Anne Donovan Court”. A true privilege for PC!
     Interim grades have now been posted. Please review these with your child and remember to reach out to your child’s guidance counselor with any issues. With all of the academic tools that we offer, all students should be doing well.
     Christmas is in the air as we kick off the season with the Christmas concert and tree lighting. The festivities begin at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, December 11, 2019. Please come out and join us on this beautiful evening.
     The 3-D club will be selling Christmas ornaments during lunchtime on December 12, 2019, through December 14, 2019.
     The Circle of Life retreat is this upcoming weekend. Please see the website for more details.
     Thank you to the Marching Paladins for marching in the Westwood Holiday parade!
     Please note that sometimes a snow day decision is not made on the snow conditions in Paramus, as we have over 50 communities that travel to PC daily.
     Thank you to the donors who contribute so generously to Paramus Catholic’s “Continue the Mission” campaign as well as to those who contributed to Giving Tuesday. Your generosity allows young people the opportunity to receive a faith-filled education.
Have a great week!
In your gratitude,
Principal Macaluso
Second Sunday of Advent 
Merciful God, who sent thy messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; who lives and reigns with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
