Principal's Message

Week of January 13, 2020
Dear Paramus Catholic Families,
     As we are now in the month of January, our school-wide faith-filled project continues. This month, students will study the sixth and seventh Stations of the Cross.
In the sixth station we learn:
                                          “Veronica wipes Jesus’ face”
      Little is known about Veronica, but we understand that she stepped out of the crowd to wipe Jesus’ face. She showed bravery and compassion. We must strive to be brave in our beliefs and to show compassion to bothers.
In the seventh station we learn:                                                                                                                                                
                                     “Jesus Falls for the Second Time”
     The burden of the cross weighed heavily on the body of Jesus, but he continued on the path. Students learn of the struggle and are encouraged to know that everyone is strengthened by Faith, that no matter how we feel, with God’s help, we can rise again.
     The semester is coming to a close. Encourage your child to submit any outstanding work, check with his or her teachers and go for extra help. The first-semester average is based on grades from the first and second quarters. We want all students to achieve their maximum potential.
     On Wednesday, January 15, 2020, we will host an Open House to all prospective students. If you know of people who may be interested, please invite them and also ask them to introduce themselves to me.
     On Friday, January 24, 2020, 51 students and faculty will attend the Pro-Life Rally in Washington, D.C. We are very proud of this group. Please note that on Monday,
January 20, 2020, the school is closed in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and
 Tuesday, January 21, 2020, as faculty prepare for Semester 2.
     Congratulations to freshman, Alexander Choi, who made the NJSMA orchestra. Bravo!!
     The wrestling team is doing a great job, as PC is now #3 in the state.
     Finally, a warm thanks to the entire PC Community. The director of Table to Table had this to say about us,
"I wanted to let you know that our top 10 list for Bag a Lunch is up on our website and Paramus Catholic is the #1 school! Thank you again for being such incredible partners in this campaign and in our work to fight hunger.” 
     Thank you to all the donors who have contributed to the Continuing the Mission fund, as all donations go directly to helping those students in good academic standing but are in financial need.
Have a good week,
In your gratitude,
Principal Macaluso
