Dear Parents and Guardians,
As we conclude a soggy week to begin the month of May I would like to thank you for your patience and flexibility in dealing with the altered arrival and dismissal procedures due to the water main replacement work on Madison Street. The work adjacent to our school should be completed within the next few days. Once I receive word from the project manager from the water company as to when they will move on to the next section of Madison Street and we can resume normal procedures, I will pass it along.
Congratulations to fourth grade student, Joshua Dayo, for having his poster selected by The Partnership for a Drug Free New Jersey, to be included in their campaign to combat drug abuse. Josh’s poster, which is pictured on our Facebook page, was one of 30 selected from over 6000 entries statewide. Great job Joshua!
The Hoboken Catholic Academy choir participated in the annual iSing Competition yesterday, at the Archdiocesan Youth Retreat Center in Kearny. The choir, under the direction of Ms. Laurie Campana, performed three songs for the judges and a small audience of parents and staff members. I am thrilled to report that our choir, comprised of more than fifty students from grades two to eight, was rated “Superior,” the highest possible rating! Congratulations to Ms. Campana and our student singers for this wonderful accomplishment. The video of their performance is on our Facebook page.
The choir will next perform at a special concert at the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark on Saturday, May 14th at 8:00PM. There will be seven Catholic elementary school choirs participating along with the award-winning choir from Cranford HS. The concert is free and open to all who wish to attend and will I’m sure be a wonderful event.
Congratulations to HCA alumnus (2014), Frank Corrado, for receiving First Honors for the third consecutive marking period at Xavier HS. Congratulations as well to Allie Mezzina, class of 2015, for being named a member of the “President’s List,” at Paramus Catholic HS and her classmate, Sophia Traficante, for earning First Honors also at Paramus Catholic HS.
Finally, to all of our moms – Happy Mothers’ Day! God bless you not only for all that you do for your own children and families, but also for what you do to help make Hoboken Catholic Academy the special place that it is. Please enjoy your special day.
Lets have a great month of May.
