Principal's Message

 
Week of October 15, 2019
Dear Paramus Catholic Families,
     We are now a full month into the 2019-2020 school year and we are building a strong momentum. Our focus on faith and academics is moving the entire school community in a forward direction. As we approach the end of the first quarter, please encourage your child to ask for help. Each faculty member is here to maximize the potential of each student. If there are concerns, please communicate these with your child’s teachers.
     Paramus Catholic has begun a school wide service collection to support Table to Table. This organization helps to feed the hungry of New Jersey. A mere $250 will deliver food for over 50 children for one month. Monies are collected in all Theology classes.
     Administration of PACT/PSAT tests will take place on Wednesday, October 16, 2019, for students in grades 9 through 11. Students should report to school at the regular time. To prepare for testing, students should have a good night’s rest and eat breakfast. Dismissal is at noon. The school building will close at noon. After dismissal, students may only be campus for a supervised activity. There is no lingering in the school building after dismissal. Seniors are encouraged to use this day to complete service hours.
     On Sunday, October 20, 2019, there will be a Firestorm Retreat at St. Anthony’s Church in Northvale, N.J. from 8:00 AM until 2:00 PM. Please see the school website for more information.
     I would like to schedule a Parent Seminar for the middle of the second semester. Please email me at smacaluso@paramus for any topics that you would like to have discussed.
 
Have a good week.
In your gratitude,
Principal Macaluso
