Principal’s Message   
Week of February 10, 2020 

Dear Paramus Catholic Families, 
This week we celebrate Valentine’s Day in honor of St. Valentine of Rome who was martyred on February 14 in AD 269. It is on this day that we express our affection to those whom we love. In keeping with this spirit, I am asking that each of us share this with our children. Student wellness is so important to the balance of every child, so let us offer the gift of positive energy to them. As a school, I will be asking students to recognize and remember to do acts of kindness in celebration of Valentine’s Day! 
Please note that interim grades for the third quarter will be completed on February 25, 2020. If your children have any outstanding work, please encourage them to submit any overdue assignments to their teachers. We are now in the second part of the school year and want all students to end the year having reached their maximum potential. 

Congratulations to Mrs. Amy Shea, as she has been awarded a Lead, Learn, Proclaim award from the National Catholic Educational Association. This award will be presented to Mrs. Shea at the NCEA convention in April 2020.
The Softball team will be hosting a Bake Sale on Thursday, February 13, 2020, during lunch. The Europe trip leaves on February 13, 2020. We wish the traveling Paladins a wonderful trip and a safe return. The trip is led by Vice Principal Wilson and a team of chaperones. They will be traveling to Germany and Poland. 
Thank you to our Alumni Impact Committee in its efforts to build strong connections with our alumni. If you know of any alums who are not receiving literature from the school, please ask them to direct any inquiries through the school website. All Paladins, present and past, are very important to the legacy of our school. 

The school building closes at noon on Friday, February 14, 2020. Students will not be permitted to remain in the building after this, unless in a supervised activity. Students may not stay in the building if they have a practice scheduled for later in the day. School reopens on Monday, February 24. 2020. Please look for the next Principal’s message when we return.
Thank you to all of our Donors who help us to Continue the Mission of Catholic education. 

Have a good week and enjoy the winter break! 
Happy Valentine’s Day to all! 
In your gratitude, 
Principal Macaluso
