President/Principal's Message

Principal Dr. Stephanie Macaluso
 Week of September 25, 2023  
Dear Paramus Catholic Families, 
     Paramus Catholic takes pride in its identity as a faith-filled school community. We value virtues and morals encompassing the four Pillars of Faith, Academics, Security, and Wellness which are infused in every aspect of this school community. 
     As a Catholic community, we will be studying the Beatitude’s which begins with the first Beatitude, “Blessed are the poor in spirit as theirs is the kingdom of heaven”. This comprehensive study will begin in October. 
Thank you for attending Meet and Greet: Back to School Night. It was a successful event as we are always pleased to speak with our PC families. 
     Monday, September 25, 2023, there will be a Club Showcase in the gym during lunch periods 4-7. Over 50 clubs will be showcased for view. It is important that students are encouraged to be part of extracurricular activities as part of our Wellness Pillar. Extracurricular activities help to balance a student’s high school experience. 
     Class meetings are ongoing. Grade 9 is completed, and this week the administrative staff will be meeting with grade 10. Junior and Senior class meetings are forthcoming. 
The Student/Parent handbook is posted on the Parent, Student, and Faculty Resource boards on Blackbaud. All families must sign the acknowledgement form which is due by September 27, 2023. This is a vital agreement between the school and families. 
     We are now beginning the Admissions season for 2024-2025 school year. If you know of a family who is interested in learning more about PC, please guide them to our Admissions tab on the school website. 
     It is my priority that students should come to school confidently and leave happy. If you have any issues or concerns, please reach out to your child’s guidance counselor. If needed, please contact me at [email protected]
     Thank you for sending your child to Paramus Catholic. 
In your gratitude, 
Dr. Stephanie Macaluso
